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:

Other: dies: Sizzix, Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; buttons: 3rd Eye; liquid pearls: Viva Decor.
Thank you for visiting today, drop by tomorrow for more inspiring projects!
2 veryt beautiful cards, and even they´re very different, they´re still both very very beautiful in eavh their way. I must confess, i absolutely love the last one with the light look and the golden snowflae, that just popped right into my heart here. Both both aree really well made and very gorgeous. Amazing work Maja, well done once again. And a very Merry Christmas to you and your family.
