Shocking, I know! My friend recently became a British citizen, after living there for over 15 years. She’s married to a Brit, and has British children and even has a weird hybrid Canadian-British accent. (Kind of like Madonna’s pseudo-English accent while she was living there…). Anyway. I thought I’d create a custom card just for this transplant to commemorate this occasion, and used my cardstock to come up with this design..


I created the Union Jack using Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White cardstocks, and die cut the maple leaf with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  Not a stamp in sight. I did ink around the edges of the maple leaf to make it stand out a bit more.  I love that I can create such a custom card for my friend – doubt I could find one so appropriate in a card store…

If you’d like to find out more about making cards, (shameless plug follows) I do have monthly card making classes if you’re in the Burlington ON area. If you aren’t, then consider one of my online classes or my upcoming Inbox Inspiration program. The Inbox Inspiration program will be launching at the end of this week, so come back for more information then!
