Happy Canada Day, eh!

Ilda here today, and for those of you that don’t know I’m Canadian, so I thought it would be fun to make Canada a few Birthday Cards. Since Canadians have been stereotyped for using the word “eh!” after making a statement, I thought it would be fun to play on the word as most of us Canadians have embraced it as an element of our Patriotism. After all, life is too short to take offense, eh!

CARD DETAILS

To begin my cards, I started by stamping out the Maple leaf from the BUSHEL AND A PECK set randomly to create the background for the card. I then used Copic Markers to color in the leaves.

Once the background coloring was done, I die cut the panel using the largest frame from the DECKLE EDGE A2 HONEY CUTS set. I then used the “EH!” dies from the BEE BOLD ALPHABET CUTS to die cut the letters in the center of the panel. To build up and pop up the “EH!” I die cut some black foam and black cardstock using the letters, glued them together and then place them back into the die-cut panel that I had glued to a black card base. I then added glossy accents to the top of the letters to give it that extra pop of shine.

The top birthday sentiment comes from the FOXY SENTIMENTS stamp set and the bottom one comes from the HAPPY BIRTHDAY stamp set that I stamped and embossed in white onto black cardstock.

This next card was a bonus card, rather than tossing the die cuts from the “EH!” I had previously cut I thought I would use them to make another card.

This time I started by cutting out the black panel using the largest frame from the A2 DOUBLE STITCHED FRAMES Cuts. Next, I stamped out the Happy Birthday from the YOU’RE A CLASSIC stamp set in white and heat embossed it.

I then glued the “EH!” in place, as well as another maple leaf that I had colored and die cut.

To finish off this card I also added some enamel dots from the BACK TO BASICS sticker pack and a few CRYSTAL PRISM GEMs.

Hope these cards inspired you and for those of you out there that are Canadian, Happy Canada Day! Stay safe and enjoy the Holiday!

Thank you for stopping by until next time… Happy Crafting!
