Hello Maja Fans and Visitors, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Since I opened my box and saw the gorgeous Vintage Romance papers, I was thinking about making some cards using images from the Love Notes or Ephemera Cards sheets. They really make creating cards for various occasions so easy! And here they are, two cards I made, filled with wamr feelings and beautiful papers 🙂

My first card is a wedding one. I used neutral pastels with a touch of pink:


For the focal image I used one of the tags from the Love Notes paper. The kissing couple is so romantic, perfect for a wedding card 🙂


I cut out the beautifully-shaped tags to create layers and add interest to the card design with all those elaborate curves.


To complete the elegant look of the card, I added guipure lace, mulberry roses and crystal flourishes:


My second card is also connected with warm feelings, but of a different kind 😉 Using the blue and pink palette, I created a card for a friend:


I first layered distressed pieces of paper, choosing the forget-me-not background to symbolise me thinking of my friend 🙂


I used a shaped tag as the background for die-cut words, and then decorated this central image adding lace and vintage ribbon, a metal charm…


…and some flowers with another metal charm, a large wing that also works like a leaf to flowers, or a flourish 🙂


Finally, I added some pearls and gold glitter ink and accented details with glitter. I hope my friend would like it 🙂

And here’s what I used for my cards (I used the small pad papers in some cases):

Apart from papers, I also used: dies: Die-Namics, Prima, Sizzix; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; glitter ink: 13@rts; glitter: Ranger; brads: Craftmania; lace, ribbon, metal charms: my stash.

Thank you for visiting the Maja Design blog today! Have a nice day and come back for more inspiration 🙂
