Christmas Greetings

Posted by Nancy Dynes

10 December, 2018 - ,

Hello, and welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here with you. I hope you’re staying warm and cozy as winter begins to settle in. I have a new Christmas card to share today. I’m super excited because it’s my first time working with Maja Design’s brand new paper collection, ‘Christmas Season’, and I’m completely in love with it!

The papers are distressed, layered, and stitched, forming a base for the embellishments. An image from the paper collection makes for a perfect sentiment and focal point.

A wintery collection of florals anchors the sentiment, while a trio of tiny bells jingle cheerily whenever the card is moved about. Frosty touches of gesso add an icy chill to the florals and around the edges of the card, and a loopy twine bow ties everything together.

Above is a peek of the interior of the card, where there is plenty of space to write a personal note.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Twine, Gesso, Holiday Greenery, Jingle Bells. 

Have you finished your holiday crafting yet? It’s not too late to pick up some of these gorgeous new papers to share in your beautiful cards and projects. I know you’ll love them as much as we do! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and spending time with us! I wish you a healthy and happy Christmas, along with many blessings throughout the New Year!

  • Sooo sooo beautiful Nancy and it just scream Christmas to me all over it, with the bells and the “snow”. I just love the entire layout out here with the feeling of nature and all the layers, that bring some dimention into it too. It´s just really beautiful as always. Fabulous work.

    Oh my that is really amazing. I’m in love with this card. Can you send me one. I would frame it. Haha

    Absolutely stunning! I love all your cards and all the details you put into it. I have never worked with Gesso. Do you just brush it on to your card and the embellishments? With what type of brush used to get this look of icy, chilly, wintry feeling? I went to buy it and so many different types out there!
