Here is sneak peek of the finished card - cute, right?
Here is the Busy Beaver Stamp & Die Set I received from Scrap 'n Stamp.
So adorable and check out those sentiments. So funny!
I couldn't create a Canada Day card without using some products from a couple of
my fave Canadian manufactures.
After stamping and die cutting my Busy Beaver image I coloured him in with Distress Markers.
His birthday hat is from the Crazy Accessories stamp with matching thinlit die. I love these sets - it makes it so easy to create accents for cards.
My background was created with the help of my Misti.
I first stamped my circle background stamp (Halftone & Rings - Stampers Anonymous) with Candy Apple Distress Ink two times to get a nice bright red.
I made a note of where my paper was before removing it from the Misti, giving it a spritz of water and then drying it
I then placed the paper back on my Misti in the same place and then stamped the same image with Black Versafine Ink. I love this layered look/
The wood pieces from Southern Ridge were painted with Candy Apple & Picket Fence Distress Paints.
