Let the Celebration Begin!

Hello, friends! I wish you a warm and cozy  welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and I’m super excited to share a card created with Maja Design’s newest collection, Celebration, with you. The new release is in honor of Maja Design’s 10th anniversary, and if you haven’t checked this festive collection out yet, you’re in for a treat.  It’s filled with fabulous patterns, colors, and spectacular vintage images reminiscent of the romance and gaiety of the roaring twenties.

This lovely image of a fashionable ‘flapper’ lady forms a perfect focal point, and is fussy cut from the paper collection. Black is heavily featured in the palette because it reminds me of a Coco Chanel quote, “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all.” When it comes to style I’m always inspired  by Coco Chanel quotes!

Pearl sprays, roses, and a loopy bow add an irresistibly feminine touch. Of course, there must be pearls on this card, because according to Coco Chanel, “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” I happen to agree with her completely.

The sentiment and roses are also fussy cut from the paper collection. There are quite a few layers here, many of which are popped up with foam adhesive to add dimension.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Pearl Sprays, Twine, Paper Roses, Detail Scissors, Foam pop up adhesive, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for sharing your time with us at the Maja Design Blog! I send wishes for all things good and wonderful.
