Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
A couple of days ago we celebrated Grandmother’s and Grandparent’s Day in Poland. And I created a set of cards for this occasion.
Both cards use the Miles Apart collection and feature the same design – a middle panel upon a background of a different pattern, a chipboard heart sentiment I very often choose to make almost identically composed cards as I love to see how papers and embellishments can totally change the final appearance. Just take a look: the card for grandma has the floral panel placed upon the heart-patterned background. I combined these with chipboard mandala doilies and a mini roses cluster that nicely blends into the printed flowers. The delicate and romantic look is topped with opalescent sequins:
Now the card for Grandpa: the same design and the focal element, but instead of flowers and doilies I added die-cut gears and moustache, and matted the chipboard heart with a piece of paper. The central panel is filled with ballons and instead of sequins I decorated the card with teeny tiny gold dots that were left after die cutting the gears 🙂
As you can see, you can play around with the same design and by changing patterns, colours and embellishments get dozens of various looks 🙂
Here’s what I used for my cards:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Cheery Lynn Designs, Cottage Cutz; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Agateria; sequins: my stash.
That’s all for today, see you soon!
