Hello Maja fans! On this sunny day I have two cards to share. I tried to use the same design to create both a feminine and a masculine card, to show you what a difference a different choice of papers can make.
First I will show you the masculine card, for which I used a combination of red and brown papers. For this card I used the amazing “It’s Christmas Time” collection. My design is actually pretty simple. I used a Tim Holtz die to make the postage stamp frame that I used as my background. Then, I adhered two smaller rectangles onto this background. After that I punched two borders and added them to my card together with a smaller rectangle. The medallion was made with two punched circles and a wood clock. I added a bird, some twine and a cut out sentiment to finish off my card.

Second, this is the feminine card that I made using the gorgeous “Sofiero” collection. These papers are pink and romantic and, thus, perfect for a feminine creation!
I used pretty much the same design as on my masculine card. Just like on the masculine card, I also made a medallion by using different circle shaped dies. I choose several pink papers from the “Sofiero” collection and paired them with two resin birds, a clock and a little heart. The pretty butterflies were cut out from the Vintage Spring Basics: 6th of May paper.
