I wish you a warm welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy today. I’m thrilled to be here with a brand new card to share. I know I’m always saying how inspired I am by Maja Design’s beautiful papers, but I really mean it. I sit down in my craft room and look at them, and ideas instantly pop in to my head. That’s exactly what happened with today’s card.

Design papers are distressed, layered and stitched for the base. Flowers are a must for this card. The flowers I’m using are from Prima, as well as fussy cut from the paper collection.

Layered papers, lace punched edges, a bit of bling, and a chipboard accent add a soft, feminine feel.

I adore lace! Here it’s layered, running down the front of the card to hug the florals at the bottom.

Additional petals peek out from beneath the top panel.

Below is a little look inside. A pretty stamped corner image is a nice finishing touch, while still leaving plenty of space for a personal note.

  • I knbow exactly what you mea, as I feel the exact same way about these stunning papers here. If I´m a bit stuck on a project some times, I just go to my Maja papershelves and begin to pull some out, and right away ideas begins to pop out in my head, and I almost want to start on several project right away.
    And I just LOVE this card here too. It´s soooo beautiful and sooo elegant the same time, and that even it also have a little rough look to it as well. I can´t quite say, what it is, but it´s really gorgeous work.
