Canada Day with Sophie Pup

Hello friends!

I have a brand new SparkleNSprinkle card to share with you today!!!  This adorable puppy is from the New Release Stamp Set called "Sophie Pup". 

Here is my complete supply list from SNS:

Alrighty!  Let's get creating this gorgeous HANDMADE CARD!

First, I started by stamping my adorable puppy image with Versafine Black Ink, then colored it with the NEW Nuvo Marker Pens!!!  I didn't record which colors I used, I completely forgot!  Sorry :) I will try to remember next time. These markers blend beautifully!  I am new to Alcohol Marker coloring, but I found them very easy to work with. Then, using the Clear Mark Embossing Pen, I added some SILVER Embossing Powder to the flag pole :)  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and embossed with Red Apple Embossing Powder. I also added a hint of the Red Apple Embossing Powder to the maple leaf on the flag.

I trimmed the image out and used some red textured cardstock as a mat background. Of course I used 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to adhere all my layers!  For the EMBOSSED gold background, I actually had the Embossing Folder Version of the Fireworks Stencil!  BUT you could make the same background with the mirror cardstock using the stencil - just dry emboss it from the back!!  Isn't it a simple, yet GORGEOUS way to create a background? I figured that a celebration like Canada Day (or the Fourth of July!) can always include fireworks, right?

All of the layers were adhered with the 1/2" Tear-ific Tape!  Finally, I used the Red Berry Crystal Drops and Silver Moondust Glitter Drops were added to finish off the handmade card.

Clean, elegant and ready to celebrate all things Canadian!!!  I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial!  Have a great day!!!
