Hello Everyone 🙂

Today it’s Thursday and I am ready with a new project for Maja Design. I must admit that I’m not quite finished with the summer, even if it rains all day long, the forest begins to change colors and the temperature drops, you se I want to keep the summer a little longer, least in my projects.

Today I have 3 Lollipop cards I want to show you, considering that this is the first time I’ve made ​​lollipop cards, I like them alot. All the cards are made in ​​the same way, with the same details, but what separates them is the colors of the pattern papers, the embossing powder and the dieses I’ve used.

I have used the pattern sheets from the latest collection called Summertime.

To the card in blue, I’ve used these  paper sheets: It’s My Favourite, Gives Me Joy, Cute Summer Dress, Glittering Water, Watch the Boats and Having Fun.

The edge of the cards is made with a punch from Martha Stewart, on top of the first layer I have several layers of patterned paper in different sizes and also spent some cheese cloth.

Under the white flowers, I have some leaves that I have embossed with Shabby Blue, a powder from Stampendous. The butterflies are a die from BoBunny, here the wings are embossed with the same powder as the leaves. Also under the flowers I have some wood from Wycinanka which is embossed with white powder from Ranger. In between all the flowers I have a light blue button with a bow and on top of it, I have a small navy button. Over the card I have one die from Heidi Swapp with the word Imagine.

When you turn the card, you can se that the card have a simple backside. If you Open the bow you can writing a greeting inside the smallest circle.

The second card is the card in green. I have used these sheets from the Summertime collection: Greenery, Taste the Strawberries and Is Always the Best.

This card has as many layers as the card in blue.  Word Lovely is also one dies from Heidi Swapp and the buttons have been replaced by someone in green tones.

Here are the leaves under the flowers embossing with Aged Hunter, one powder from Stampendous. The butterflies are embossed with the same green powder and comes from one set of three butterflies from BoBunny.

If you flip the card, you se a new bow that you can open for writing a greeting.

The last card is in red and since the colour was red, then I just need to use the word Bliss, this is also one dies from Heidi Swapp. The sheets I have used are called:  Is Always the Best, Smell the Roses, Flowers Everywhere, Let’s go for a Ride and Ligth Scarlet.

The leaves and the butterflies is embossed with a powder of Distress Ink I do not remember the name of. The buttons on this card is in red and a big one in pink.

The back is exactly the same as on the other cards.

Placing all the Lollipop cards together, you get a nice symphony of summer cards. Now you see way I want to keep the summer a little longer 😉
