Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I was very happy to find cut-out sheets in the latest collection, Everyday Life! Apart from beautiful images you will find the thin white border around them to make fussy-cutting easier 🙂 And so for my today’s post I created two birthday cards based on those cut-out elements:

The first card is for a gardening fan 🙂 I cut out the pot, watering can and gardenind tools and also single flowers both from the regular size and small pad sheets, and arranged the elements into a scene around a stamped and embossed sentiment, mounting particular pieces on foam dots for a nicer texture and dimension:

Similarly, I arranged cut out images of the wine bottle, glasses and piece of pizza in a card for a cuisine connesseur 🙂 I also added a stripe of washi tape and hand-cut banners to fill in the background:

The cards are nicely dimensional, yet flat enough to be mailed in envelopes, which is great 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers (both 12×12″ and 6×6″ sheets):

Other: stamp: Wycinanka; washi tape, pearls, string: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Greetings friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a summer card fresh from the Maja Design berry patch (or my scrap table).

This card was created using the Everyday Life collection and coordinating Monochrome collection, “Shades of Everyday Life“.  This collection has quickly become a favorite of mine for it’s versatility.  I have used this for Christmas cards, patriotic cards and now a fun, fresh summer card.

Here are some of the sheets used for this card:  Gardening (both A and B sides) and Coffee Break (both A and B sides of paper).

More close ups of the card.  The die set featured is from Spellbinders and it’s the newest die set for the month of August.

Thank you for stopping for a visit.  You are valued and treasured.  Happy crafting.
