Birthday Cards

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!
