Happy Mid Week!
I was recently asked to create a card for a relative that had just gained his Canadian Citizenship. I wanted to find a way to depict all the great things about Canada, but was stumped as to how I was going to fit it all on a card front measuring only 4 1/4" x 5"!
So, I headed over to Pinterest to search out Canadian inspired artwork and stumbled across a beautiful piece of wall art that put into words exactly what I wanted my card to visually depict. I still wanted images on my card though so I chose the Moose image from Walk in the Wild set and used the Maple Leaf from the Autumn Accents die as a stencil to layer in the sky. Overall I love the Canadian feel of this card and really happy with the way it turned out! I think I'll have to re-create the wall art that inspired me for my next Home Decor project :)
