Hello there, Maja Fans, welcome to our blog πŸ™‚

It’s Maja here and yes, I finally bring you Christmas cards! πŸ™‚ With Christmas less than two weeks away I’m getting into the holiday mood and preparing to send out my Christmas cards. Here are the cards I made with our latest beautiful collection, Home for the Holidays:

As you can see, I used the Santa Clause images and poinsettias as main motives for both cards, yet they do differ in the details.

The white poinsettia card features the Santa image from the Vintage Frost Basics die cuts sheet:

I chose the ecru-white-gold-silver palette: I layered pieces of paper and covered the background with a piece of cheesecloth. Then I tucked some foam glitter stars I bought for my kids to play with πŸ˜‰ and golden sequins under the layered image:

The poinsettia isn’t the scrapbooking stuff either πŸ˜‰ I just dismantled a small poisettias bouquet I bought from a home decor shop. I removed the plastic stem and flower centre and replaced it with a pearl brad. Under the poinsettia I put die-cut mistletoe twigs, a snowflake charm and some beautiful golden ribbon and guipure lace:

The other card features some more bright colours as I chose the “red” Santa tag from the die cuts sheet for the Home for the Holidays collection and added a red poinsettia:

For the background I used a piece of the A Real Fellow paper with the postcard print. Then I added some felt and chipboard snowflakes, the poststamp image, golden metallic ribbon and sequins. I tied a piece of baker’s twine on the image tag and added white pompoms πŸ™‚

I decorated the poinsettia with frosty berries, crystal drops and “furry” twine. Then I added some liquid pearls imitating snow to finish my design:

I really like how the cards turned out: vintage and festive, just as I wanted πŸ™‚

    Your Santa’s cards are lovely !

    I fell in love with the Santa in his brown attire! I do have the red Santa paper sheet.

    Will you be able to let me know which sheet the brown attire Santa is printed on, and is it still available?

    Thanks.

    Thank you, Suzanna πŸ™‚ The “brown Santa” image comes from the Die-cuts sheet of the Vintage Frost Basics collection – you’d have to check at your local distributor for Maja Design papers if the sheet is still available.

    So sorry to have bothered you!

    Have a nice Christmas.
