Hello, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a lovely day. It’s Nancy, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to the Maja Design Blog. I’m relishing the beautiful weather and staying busy as ever in my craft room with my Easter preparations. I have a new card to share featuring two spring elements, Easter eggs and handmade flowers.

Two of my favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Autumn Basics and Vintage Summer Basics, are used in the creation of this card. As usual, the paper is distressed, layered and stitched to form a base. One of the many things I adore about Maja Design paper is that it’s strong and behaves much like fabric when I’m working with it. As you can see, I really put it to the test and it holds up every time.

You’ll find a blooming rose and a wildflower gracing my little garden. If you visit my blog you’ll find tutorials for both styles of flowers as well as the Easter egg. A die cut flourish, ribbon and cheesecloth add a soft touch.

Design paper is border punched and layered to anchor the egg and florals. A die cut Spellbinder’s frame is tucked in behind the egg.
