In Canada, we celebrate Canada’s Birthday July 1 of each year! To mark this occasion, I created two Canadian Birthday Cards. I created them using a single sheet of card stock, and added texture and depth with ink. I pulled out all my Maple leaf stamps and made two Red & White cards.
My G-son celebrated in style…I had to include his picture because he was too darn cute!
I entered my cards into the following challenges:
Catherine & Cathy Create - ”National Pride” July 2014 CCC 037 challenge
Addicted to Stamps – Make Your Mark My mark was stamps and ink
CAS on Sunday – Birthday Celebrating Canada’s Birthday
One-Layer Simplicity – Wave the Flag The Canadian Flag is red & white with a Maple Leaf
Curtain Call – Birthday Bash! vs paper balls, I used maple leaves!
UPDATE: My vertical card was selected twice at a Favorite of the Week ending July 6, 2014.
