Cathy - Zig Zag Card 1

Happy New Year, Maja Design friends! It’s Cathy here today and I’m so happy to be sharing a card with you that I have created using papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. I love creating cards for all occasions. This is a double zig zag card that is generic at the moment but can be personalised at later date simply by stamping a sentiment when the occasion arises.

The card is closed by the use of a simple band. I have used a Stampin’ Up! border punch and embellished it with some Green Tara flowers and a lovely Prima Rose. I have also used Memory Box Amira Flourish die to add some elegance.

Here is the inside of the card. It has a series of panels and you can see that I have embellished some. They need to be flat so that the card can close.

The centre panel lifts up where you can record your message and add your stamped sentiment. I edged the outside with some Kaisercraft White Pearls.

All of my papers are inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Here I added some Green Tara roses and I used a Martha Stewart leaf punch to create these leaves which I inked with some Prima Dark Bark chalk ink. I also added a Cheery Lynn butterfly and added some Kaisercraft blush pearls. I also used Peaceful Butterfly Wings from Memory Box along with one of my favourite dies Elegant Scrollwork.

I used Heartfelt Creations Timeless Armour dies to create the lattice heart and added used some of my scraps to create this flower. I used my EK Success daisy punches and added a pearl centre.

The image of the girl is so adorable! I played around with one of the Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy dies and cut away the parts that I needed to frame her.

Hi! I'm Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.

    Cathy this is so delicate and beautiful. I just love how you’ve used the die cut sheet. The little girl is in fact one of Marie’s relatives. Her grandmother if I remember correctly.
