Happy Saturday Peeps, It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge.
This week our hostess is the fabulous Lori Rider and she has a great challenge for us:
It's World Card Making Day! In honor of our special holiday, create a card that takes its main inspiration from a country other than your own. Please explain where you got your inspiration and how you used it on your card.
I was a bit stumped by this one and really had no ideas as to which way to go, but it finally came to me in the middle of the night, I would use the Canadian Flag as my inspiration. I have several blogging friends from up north, Dawn and Marisa are two of my faves and I visit their blogs daily, even if I don't comment as much as I should!
I hope my Canadian friends like this card, I tried to stay as true to the inspiration as I could. I used Very
Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card. I layered the very vanilla onto a piece of cherry cobbler card stock and embossed the square lattice EF. The maple leaf is from the Stampin Up "Gently Falling" stamp set. I stamped the outline of the maple leaf with Early Espresso ink and sponged in some color with daffodil delight and cajun craze and just a bit of cherry cobbler ink.
The sentiment on here is from the Stampin Up Fabulous Phrases stamp set. I added some brads to the corners and a little jute twine bow. I keep the card very CAS and just let the "flag" shine through! :) I hope my Canadian friends and readers like the card I made and that they have my gratitude.
Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge. I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!
Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
