Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
It’s here, it’s here! Maja Design latest release, the Happy Christmas collection!
The traditional mix of green, red and brown, beautiful patterns and the signature Maja vintage look 🙂 I just got my DT box and couldn’t stop myself from immediately making some cards!
I chose a very simple design for my cards as I wanted to showcase the beautiful patterns of small gingerbread cookies and Christmas baubles. So I decided to put the stamped and embossed sentiments on the background paper and die cut windows in the top layers to make them visible. To this I added hand-coloured stamped images and a chipboard frame for the first card:
And for the second card I used a die-cut poinsettia:
For the bauble on this card I also used a little bit of paper piecing – can you see it? 🙂
I really love how hte cards turned out dimensional and yet still easily go into envelopes, ready to be sent out 🙂
And here’s what I used:

Other: stamps, chipboard, ep: Agateria; dies: Magnolia; snow balls: DP Craft.
That’s all for today, see you soon!
