Busy Beaver Canada Day Blog Hop!!

Hello, and Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!! We are blog hopping today with Scrap 'n Stamp in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday!! Woot Woot!! and sharing projects featuring the cute new 'Busy Beaver’ Stamp & Die set by Taylored Expressions! If you've arrived from Julia's blog you're in the right place- and if you want to start from the beginning then head over to see Tara at the Scrap And Stamp Blog!

For my project for the Hop I've created a fold out card with a special gift card pocket on the inside flap. He's holding the most adorable diecut maple leaf, just waiting to start his Canada Day celebrations!!

I stamped this cute little guy and the two logs on watercolour paper and coloured him in with Prima Watercolor Pencils. Then I layered him on a banner diecut with a Spellbinders banner die from the new Wild Whisper Strong & Free patterned paper. I used some Kaisercraft border dies to add faux stitching to the front panel and the inside pocket below.

To create this card I cut two pieces of kraft cardstock 5 1/2" x 4 1/2", then I cut my white cardstock insert at 3 3/4" x 11", and scored that at 5" and 10". You can see the video that I followed along with HERE. I added a Double Double pocket- because what could be more Canadian, eh?! from the Wild Whisper Strong & Free card pack. You can see a little tab I diecut and behind I tucked in a Timmy's gift card for the recipient!

 On the envelope I added this adorable Busy Beaver again and this time coloured him in with coloured pencils. I just had to add the EH? part of the stamp ;) Inside I stamped another sentiment from the set using Distress Oxide Inks. I am loving the way they stamp!!

Here's a look at the card opened up all the way. I decorated with some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and used an adorable little Taylored Expressions maple leaf die tied on with some Burlap String from the SpiegelMom Scraps store.  

Here's a look at this adorable set!

    1. I see that the blog hop candy is only for Canadians. What if I am Canadian and have a Canadian address still but live in the US?
