Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂
If you still celebrate the sadly vanishing tradition of sending Christmas cards, I guess it’s time to start to send them 🙂 And if you’re looking for some inspiration, let me share some shaped cards today:
I used the latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection. It contains several papers in darkest colours of the set and featuring beautiful damask patterns. Here I took the navy blue paper, applied a white stencil pattern upon it – just look at the gorgeous contrast! – and added embellishments:
The flower cluster includes foamiran poinsettias I made myself 🙂 I also added a die-cut manger scene:
There’s also a brown damask paper in the set:
I paired it with the burgundy paper and added some colour-matchign embellishments, with art clay angels made with a mold:
And, last but not least, the burgundy version of the same pattern:
Here I applied a snowflake pattern upon the paper and added a chipboard quotation from a Polish Christmas song. Then I added my embellishments, including a large Prima poinsettia, my handmade foamiran poinsettia and some twigs and leaves die cut from glitter cardstocks.
And here’s the whole set:
I really like how they turned out, glimmering and festively rich 🙂 What do you think?
Here’s my list of supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Other: stencils: Agateria, Heidi Swapp; flowers: Prima, handmade; dies: Marianne Design, Magnolia, Craft&You Design, Tim Holtz/Sizzix; chipboard: Scrapiniec; crystals, ribbon, mold: my stash.
That is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!
They´re all absolut gorgeous, as everything you ever do Maja. I love, how you´ve mixed and matched it all and get such fabulous cards with simple means here, really gorgeous work as usual and I know there´ll be some happy recievers, who are lucky to get these. I agree with you, it´s soo sad, that not many make and send christmascards anymore, but afraid it´s because of the crazy postal fees, that comes with it today, as it really run up, if you used to send many as we crafters mostly did, and I most confess, I´ve also reduced it a lot, because of that, as I ended upp spending soo much money on postage, that it was far more than the price of the cards, but agreed it´s really sad. But I hope, everyone inhere will have a wonderful Christmas anyway and maybe spend some time making other kinds of cards then.
