Hello, dear friends! It’s Nancy here, wishing you all a warm welcome here at the Maja Design Blog. It’s almost June, a huge month for weddings. As a June bride myself, I can attest to carrying the traditional ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue’ for good luck before taking my stroll down the aisle. Maja Design’s gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection inspired this ‘Something Borrowed, Something Blue’ card for an upcoming bridal shower.

One of the many things I love about Maja Design papers is the fact that the same piece of paper can inspire endless creations. You need only to gaze upon the beautiful designs and your imagination runs wild. Also, though the collections may be named for different seasons or themes,  each is perfect for any time of the year. My advice is to stock up on ALL of them!

The papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form the base. Blue and ivory are present in multiple patterns and tones.

The flowers are handcrafted from design paper (there is a tutorial on my blog). A resin frame, a twine bow, a scattering of pearls, and an antique pearl earring also adorn the base.

A little butterfly also found it’s way into the floral spray.
