Good morning dear Maja Visitors, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and your summer is going good despite the restrictions imposed on us all over the world.
Summer usually gives a great opportunity to visit our family and friends living away, but this summer is very much different due to the pandemic. Some countries closed their borders, other don’t allow to travel abroad or introduce lockdown conditions, which all makes it impossible to leave our homes. We are lucky enough to have other means of contact such as phones or the Internet, but there are other ways to show our loved ones we remember 🙂 The Miles Apart collection was intended for such occasions and today I bring you two cards that you could send out when you can’t visit:
For my cards I used the most beautiful rose papers from the collection (in my opinion, of course 🙂 ), in the rose and blue version.
As the post stamp images from the Ephemera sheet I created my own custom pieces by die-cutting the post stamp shapes and filling them with flowery patterned rectangles. Then I added some stamping:
The central elements of the cards are chipboard hearts mounted on kraft cardstock for nice contrast and placced upon beautiful guipure lace. To match these pieces with the rose paper, I added a mini roses below the hearts. For the sentiment I used the ones printed on signature strips – you know I love using those mini patterns! The blue one says “Miss You”:
The pink card follows the suit, I just changed the plaid matting paper for a striped one and used the “Thinking of you” sentiment:
I really like the way they turned out and I hope someone who’d receive such a card would definitely feel our love and bond!
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Joy!; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: the MiniArt; lace: my stash.
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
