Hi Maja fans! Today I have created a very sunshine-y, love-y, happy card for you! I must admit, after Valentine’s Day, it is nice to get away from the traditional colors of love and do something a little different. So I chose a yellow & sand color combination for this love card…Making it a perfect gift for a wedding, a new baby or just because!

love 1

For this card, I used the beautiful Life in the Country Collection which is full of homespun designs. I love that even among the bright patterns and colors of this collection, one can find beautiful, subdued hues like this gorgeous gingham/striped print which I have used today!

love 2

I used the “In The Hammock” paper, layering both the front and backside of this lovely print for the base of the card. At the top, I added a die-cut circle border from some yellow pieces of scrap paper I had, and I added a matching yellow ribbon, along with a vintage button.

Just below that, I adhered a die-cut banner with a very sparkly, special little heart. I love how the vintage glass glitter mimics the color of the paper and adds a touch of shiny happiness to the card.

love 3

Just below that, I stamped a sentiment using some TCM stamps, and layered it onto an embossed and hand-cut doily. To finish the card, I layered lace, Maya Road trim, a pearl flourish and a pretty little trinket key (which used to be on one of my favorite necklaces that had seen better days).

Just below that, you can see some of the beautiful Maja paper peeking out in a lovely scallop, which I hand cut following the lines of the embossing folder I used. A little flower and button combo finish off this quick, and fun card!

Supplies: Maja Design Paper (In The Hammock), Maya Road bubble trim, White cardstock, ZVA pearl flourish, Dienamics circle border die, Papertrey Ink In Stitches Die, The Craft’s Meow stamp. Buttons, Lace, Trinket Key, Ribbon, and Yellow Paper are from my stash.

I hope this little card adds a touch of love and sunshine to your day!

Until Next Time,
