Friends for Life

Hello! It’s Nancy here, and I wish you  the warmest of welcomes to the Maja Design Blog. I hope a lovely Easter was had by all. Today I’m sharing a card I have created for my dear friend’s birthday. For this project I’m drawn to a soothing palette in her favorite color, and I found just what I’m looking for in Maja Design’s Vintage Summer Basics paper collection. This collection is a staple for me and coordinates well with Maja Design’s other paper collections.

The larger flowers are handmade using design papers. If you’d like to make this style of  flower you’ll find a link to the step by step tutorial in the sidebar of my blog. All papers are not created equal, and after thorough testing I have determined that Maja Design paper is the best for flower making. It stands up perfectly to all of the twisting and shaping I use in my process, which breaks down lesser quality papers to shreds.

A trio of sweet butterflies flutter about my little flower garden.

Stamping along the edges adds a special touch, as does the sentiment stamp (below) which is just perfect for my friend.

Decorative corner die cuts anchor the florals as they cascade down the card.

Below is a peek at the interior of the card.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, Cottage Cutz Decorative Corner die, Butterfly Punch, Spellbinders Circles dies, Heartfelt Creations Flower Shaping Kit, Prima and Spellbinders stamps, flower stamens, archival ink, twine, Prima Gesso, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. 

Thank you so much for joining us today. If you’re interested in any of the papers you see here just click on the STORE FINDER tab at the top of the blog to be taken to a vendor in your country. May your week be filled with happiness and crafty delights!
