Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
You have already had a chance to see some Christmas cards inspirations from my talented DT friends, using the latest Maja Design release, the Christmas Season collection. And here are mine too 🙂
I decided to feature both sets of the collection’s colour palette: the classic Christmas red and green and the very wintery blue and ecru.
For the first card I used a chipboard layered Christmas bauble as my focal element.
I layered the selected background papers and covered the bauble base with polka dot red sheet. Then I added the top filigree layer embossed with golden ep and decorated with a button and pearls. I also added the flower cluster to the top of the bauble:
The second card features a die-cut snowflake with a manger scene button:
To decorate it, I added a flower cluster with vintage seam ribbon bow and some postcards cut out from one of the papers. Various winter leaves and the snowflake are die-cut from glitter cardstock and they look like iced snow, glistening against the light! I also added some liquid pearls dots to imitate snow falling:
The cards are both a little dimensional, but will still fit into envelopes – perfect to mail to family and friends 🙂
And here’s what I used to create my cards:
