Happy 150th Canada!

Hello & Happy July!

We just celebrated Canada's 150th Birthday on July 1st. I am truly proud to be Canadian and grateful to live here. As many of you already know, Southern Ridge Trading Company is a Canadian Company and to celebrate, she released some wood and chipboard die cuts. 

I created a card for the occasion with the special release and enjoyed working with them. Even thou, the Mini Wood Maple Leaf and the Canada 150 Maple Leaf die cuts are beautiful in there raw form, I was wanting to add some colour and glitter. I coated the die cuts with multi media and used Distress Glitter in Fired Brick to cover. I allowed them to dry before tapping off the excess. 

I layered cardstock and pattern paper to create a card base. I added sewing to the edges of two layers and seam binding to one side. I distressed a rectangle piece of cardboard,  added a bit of glitter and twine. 

I backed the glittered Canada 150 Maple Leaf with grid pattern paper. I adhered it on top of the cardboard piece in the center of the card. I also added the sentiment and two Mini Wood Maple Leaf.

Live, Laugh & Create!
