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!
WOUW once again you made such beautiful cards here Maja, and I´m sure your grandparents are over the moon to recieve such wonderful greetings from you. I love the soft colors and personal decor, that really speaks to the recipient from the heart with love. Your talent always show, and make my heart warm. Beautiful work here as always.
