Blog Hop: Pride 2020

Posted on: June 30, 2020

I’m very happy to be participating in a blog hop with fellow Canadian demonstrator Stefanie Pletscher, The Crafty Medic. The theme for the hop is PRIDE!

This is an important topic for me and my family, as we strive to be good allies and uphold the rights of all – regardless of skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, or any other factor. This past month has shown all of us that we need to do more: not just show acceptance and tolerance, but stand up to bigotry and prejudice in al its forms. My family and I will keep working toward this goal, now and always.

My daughter Gwen (12) absolutely loves rainbows, so I enlisted her help in creating this card. I blogged here about how to create a rainbow background just a few months ago, but I knew Gwen would take it in a whole different direction … and she didn’t disappoint! She is a true artist. Just look at all the amazing backgrounds she created… no two are the same!

All I had to do was choose one, and overlay the die-cut from Detailed Hearts on top of it for a bold Pride card.

I’m not even sure this card needs a sentiment – it seems to have a message on its own, doesn’t it?

Warning for those who would like to try the rainbow background technique: it will stain your bone folder. But then again, if you’re a rainbow fan like Gwen and me, you might just find that to be a benefit!
