Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I think grandparents are second important people in a child’s life, right after parents. In Poland it is common that retired grandparents take care of their grandchildren when the parents are at work. And so they play a very important role in kids’ life, helping to raise them and spending a lot of time with them. And I think grandparents so much deserve a special celebration! And so in January we celebrate Grandmother’s Day on the 21st and Grandfather’s Day on the 22nd. For that occasion I made two cards:
I used the Denim & Friends collection for both cards. For the card for grandma I used the turqouise hues of the collection, using also some Monochromes sheets.
I used a humorous carved chipboard pieces for my cards, and I decorated them adding a bit of colour and some glitter. Then I put each piece against a background of layered papers:
I also added a flower cluster and some pearl brads to the grandma’s card:
In the card for grandpa, I opted for the brown-navy blue palette:
I added screw-like brads and a star charm tied on plaid-patterned ribbon:
I think grandparents would appreciate hand-made cards from their grandchildren more than anything money can buy 🙂
And here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Other: stamps: Lemonade; chipboard pieces: Egocraft; brads: Craftmania, Rayher; dies: Rosy Owl, Spellinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Lemoncraft; crystal gems: Prima; ribbon: my stash.
And that is all for today – see you soon!
