A very quick post for today, as we’ve just settled in from our wonderful vacation. We cherished every moment spent out on the open road, and marveled at the beautiful scenery. I don’t know that I will be able to share any particular highlight, as each and every day was special in it’s own unique way. From exploring small towns and scenic highways, to enjoying long hot days in the Arizona sun, to all the culinary and touristy adventures, and everything in between…This trip was just what we needed.
Back at home now, we are slowly returning to our normal pace, and I am here to share a little card I created before we embarked on our holidays.
To create this card, I started with a soft mint paper (10th of March) from the Vintage Springs collection. Just below that, I added a plaid pattern from the Vintage Winter collection (Christmas Joy).
To that, I added a die-cut doily using the Send a Postcard print from the Vintage Winter collection, and the Favorit print from the Ska vi ta en fika collection.
I added a Melissa Frances vintage sticker to the doily, and decorated the outside with liquid pearls. To the side, I added just a bit of crinkled lace, along with a button and a little die-cut heart. I used my snowflake die to cut out and layer a couple of delicate snowflakes with button and rhinestone centers, and a pretty rub-on for the sentiment.
I know I say it over and over, but it really is so easy to create lovely cards when the papers are this beautiful. I love how perfectly Maja papers match with other companies’ vintage products, like so many of my beloved Melissa Frances stickers, or other worn and faded vintage trinkets in my stash.
There are so many more beautiful Maja papers that I want to put to use, so stay tuned, as I will be back with many more holiday creations soon!
Supplies: Maja Design paper (10th of March – Vintage Springs collection. Christmas Joy – Vintage Winter collection, Send a Postcard – the Vintage Winter collection, Favorit –Ska vi ta en fika collection), Melissa Frances Stickers, My Favorite Things Snowflake Die, My Favorite Things Doily Die, Buttons, Lace, Rub-on and Rhinestones from my stash.
So pretty and festive.
