It’s a Girl!

Hello wonderful Maja Design fans!

I’m in today after a nice family holiday to share a card I made using two seemingly different collections: Crea Diem and Vintage Baby.

The colors in Crea Diem are quite muted, and complements the tones in Vintage Baby. The designs are also more flourished, so for those who prefer a different kind of background for their baby cards, it is a good alternative. Here, I used some of the neutral grey tones and layered my cut outs from Vintage Baby on top to get a card that is both classic and baby-ish at the same time.

The grey toned paper layers I used didn’t have the black border on all sides, so it was just a matter of inking the edges with black ink to achieve the same effect.

Some close-ups:

A simple background of mists and stenciled texture paste over my layers of papers, plus my must-have floral cluster. Some stamping with a vine stamp as well to create the effect of spreading leaves and direction. I had also done some stamping on my cut-out from Vintage Baby before layering the beautifully drawn image on it.

I like to add chipboard to my projects because it’s additional dimension and texture, and breaks up the monotony of just papers alone. On this piece, I have a few different layers of tones of pink and lilac to make it complement the papers.

And that’s all for now, thanks for dropping by!
