Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I know many of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland this holiday comes on May 26th. And so for my today’s post I have two simple shabby chic cards for moms 🙂
Both are made using the Sofiero collection – soft, delicate colours and beautiful designs are simply perfect for the occasion. And so in the first card I layered sand-coloured papers in the background and placed two cut-out images on top. Then I added the sentiment in a decorative die frame and some mini roses:
I slightly distressed the edges of papers to give them a more shabby look. Small pearls are a cherry on top 😉
For the background of the other card I embossed the Monochromes white/sand paper to add some texture:
Then I placed a flowery tag on top onto which I stamped my sentiment. I put a decorative chipboard frame on top so that the sentiment pops out 🙂
I finished my card off with a small flower cluster:
Though simple, the cards still were a kind of a challenge for me: I had to make them flat enough to go into envelopes to be mailed 🙂 With my love for dimension that was sooo hard! 🙂
And here’s what I used:
Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Lemonade; dies: Sizzix; brads: Craftmania; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon, string: my stash.
Have a nice day and see you soon!
