Canada Outdoor Bendi Card - Thinking of You

Yogi here today with a Canada Outdoor Bendi card. 

Canada Day has just past, but we're celebrating and thinking of it all year... After all we don't turn 150 every day...

I'm using the main Bendi card file and parts of a couple other digital files from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store - click on an image to purchase.

Opened the "Outdoor Bendi Card" in SCAL, and cut exactly as is from a 12 x 12 white cardstock. Colored the various images using Distress pads and a piece of double sided release paper where needed to act as a mask. Did not use the two overlay slotted rectangle pieces since I hand colored those areas on the main card.

Created the mountains by just drawing pointed mountains... on white cardstock, using the release paper and lightly sponging on one edge with "Weathered Wood" to create shadows to define the mountain edges. Cut around the mountains then hit the upper peaks with the edge of Picket Fence pad and embossed with Emerald Creek "Soft Fallen Snow" embossing powder. It has a nice snowy texture to it.  Adhered to back of Bendi card.

Stamped the "Thinking of You" using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Electronically cut out the "Canada" word from white cardstock, inked with "Candied Apple" and clear embossed.

Electronically cut the greenery by ungrouping the file and moving the greenery to the mat. Cut 2 as per the file and  a third one flipped. Cut from white cardstock and colored with various Distress greens.

The maple leaf was embossed with the fallen snow. Adhered all the various elements.
