Hello, dear friends of the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here with you. I hope you’re enjoying a beautiful day! I’m in my craft room playing with Maja Design’s ‘Walking in the Forest’ papers once again, because I’m completely in love with this season. To quote Winnie the Pooh, it’s “a time for hot chocolatey mornings, and toasting marshmallow evenings, and best of all, leaping into leaves!”
The rich, gorgeous colors in this collection are absolute perfection for creating leafy autumnal projects!
Honestly, the papers do all of the work for you, bringing the change of seasons to life on the page. I’m layering and distressing each of my layers, then stitching them together on my sewing machine. You don’t need to add stitching, but I feel like it gives it ‘that little something extra’.
The floral spray provides a focal point as it tumbles down the front of the card, drawing from the colors in the collection. Even the leaves are die cut from the collection then tucked in amongst the flowers and berries.
I’m doing a bit of rubber stamping on the exterior and interior of the card, as well as with the sentiment used to create the band encircling the bouquet.
Below you’ll find a peek of the inside with coordinating stamping. Of course, you’ll also find a bow. I always feel like my cards aren’t truly finished without one.

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Leaf Dies, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Paper Flowers, Rubber Stamps, Archival Ink, Natural Twine, Fall Berries, Foam Adhesive, Glue Gun, Sewing Machine, Thread.
Thank you so much for spending time with us on the blog today. May this day be one of promise and joy, and may all your crafty dreams come true!
Such a wonderful card here again Nancy, and I just LOVE, how you always decorate them close to the same inside as outside. In my world it just really finish a card of, when it´s just as nice inside as outside, and yours always are. And all the amazing layers of flowers and leaves, that gives it all soo much structure and almost bring it to life. Really beautiful, you really did an outstanding job here, well done, I really really like it a lot.
Have a wonderful new week ahead everyone.
