Since this was Canada Day, I wanted to actually do a themed card and do something about Canada. That being said, I didn’t want to just do a flag.
We spent time at one of the National Parks on the day and had cupcakes which had, luckily for me, flags stuck in them! I say this is lucky because I wanted to add a maple leaf to my card and I can’t draw one to save my life. It’s really pathetic…
Anyway, I misted some red, cut out and adhered the maple leaf, sprayed the whole thing with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist and let it dry. I added the words but it still needed something.
I pulled out my Golden Light Molding Paste and smeared it over a new stencil. Just enough to add that touch I wanted!
Not too flag-like but still very Canadian!
I love the Golden Molding Paste – very soft and almost velvety. It adds a bit of texture without being too much:
I hope all you Canadians had a fabulous long weekend – here in NL we actually had wonderful sunny and warm weather! To any Americans who may pop by here, enjoy the Fourth!
See you tomorrow for some more cards, plus a weekend recap if I get a chance to edit some pics. I also will have a Paperie Pick post later this week and am getting ready to go away for the weekend again – going to be a busy one!
