Today I made a card for the Card a Day Blog, with the theme, Country’s Birthday. I did a simple printed card, embellishing it slightly with a clear glaze pen. I wanted to highlight the Canadian maple leaf, and not detract too much from my sentiment on the front. For those who don’t speak French, it is:
Canada - my country….my heart
I chose this when I was remembering one of my favorite French songs from school, “Mon Pays” by Gilles Vigneault. It kind of sums up for me what it is to be Canadian… you can access the translated English lyrics here, or listen to the song here.
Made with Sihouette Studio (just selected the images I wanted and digitally colored them, then printed only).
Finished card size:
- 1/4 fold (4.25 x 5.5 inches)
- Moose frame by Joel Pilcher (design id #3611) (I attached a rectangle below it to frame the sentiment)
- Flag Canada by Silhouette (design id #1625)
- Bleedbob BTN
Hope you like it! Birthday celebrations are a great time to sing those songs you love
Come back to the Card a Day Blog tomorrow, when Jill has a card for you under a new theme (and challenge!) “Just because”.
