I (HEART) Canada

Happy weekend! I've taken a small hiatus from crafting in order to finish a course I was taking and am thrilled to be back to take part in the Paper Garden Canada Day Card Challenge! Tiffany even sent me some fabulous cardstock and envelopes, some of which I've used on my card. All of the red you see is Aura Scarlet Linen cardstock (which has a slight texture that I LOVE) and the white is Aura Solar White, a fabulous cover weight cardstock just perfect for card creations.


I found this sweet little girl from My Scrap Chick and did make a couple of minor alterations to get just the look I wanted for my card. I embossed the mat with a cloud background and then got out some of my favourite My Craft Spot products to finish things off. (Even though
My Craft Spot is no longer in business, I love the products and still think they're the best out there!)

I used Tiny Banners metal dies for the little banner at the side and Small Alphabet metal dies for the letters to spell "Canada". At the top, I added die cuts for the I (HEART).

Please check out all the fabulous creations made by the rest of the participants in the Paper Garden Canada Day Care Challenge and even join in the fun, if you'd like. There's also an opportunity to vote for your favourite. Of course, I'd love for you to pick my card but you're welcome to choose the one with which you're most taken.
