I wish you a warm welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and I have a new card to share with you today. Spring has finally arrived. Flowers are blooming and the songbirds are nesting in my garden. I watch them from the window of my craft room, and they inspired this ‘Birds of a Feather’ card.

There are several layers of Maja Design’s  Vintage Spring Basics paper collection that have been distressed and stitched together. The floral details are fussy cut from both the 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 collections.

A cheery bouquet of Prima flowers and paper cherry blossoms adorn the front of the card, along with die cut leaves and blossom flourishes. A bit of cheesecloth adds a soft touch.

A tiny bird’s nest peeks out from the corner of the bouquet. The photo below captures additional fussy cutting from the 6 x 6 paper collection.

The sentiment is stamped using archival ink. The finishing touch is a natural twine bow.
