Hi there, Maja Fans!

Maja welcomes you to the blog today and invites to have a look a some celebrations cards.

I know many of you are cardmakers, so I thought I’d share some inspiration using the small paper pad as the images and designs are scaled down and thus are perfect for cards and small projects. I chose the Coffee in the Arbour collection – and here’s what I came up with. The first card is a wedding one:

mdwedbI used the branch sheet for the background…

mdwedb1…as it looked very natural with the cute little birdhouse scene I created using a set of MFT dies:

mdwedb2For more interest, I gave the card the easel form:

mdwedb3The sentiment is the chipboard words. As the final touch, I added droplets of crystal perlen pen all over the card 🙂

mdwedb4The other card is for my mother-in-law’s birthday. She’s really a sweet loving woman and so I thought the image with a sweet cupcake would be perfect 🙂

mdtesI layered several papers and mounted the machine-sewn image on 3D foam for more dimension:

mdtes1I also accented the cupcake details with glitter and traced its contours with a superfine marker to make it pop out of the scene:

mdtes2I added a few miniroses that match the ones in the pciture:

mdtes3I also die-cut a little box for the gift we’re planning to give her:

mdtes4I hope she’d like the set – do you? 🙂
