Summer Cards

Hello Maja fans! Gabrielle here with you today to share a couple of cards I made using the adorable summer collection ‘Summer Crush’!  I just love the ‘Snapshots’ paper, so many fun little vignettes to serve as centerpieces to a cute retro style card!

Maja Design paper is just made for layering.  I start by choosing a favorite patterned paper like the polka-dot ‘Flirty’ paper.  I distress the edges with a Tim Holtz Edge Distressor, then just start layering on more and more patterned papers.  Tuck in a little burlap, some floral embellishments and a little wood-cut trellis (Scrapiniec), and you’re done!

For my second card I again used the polka-dot pattern, this time in the blue and used the cute l’il blue guitar picture as my center piece.  Perfect for a fun little card to cheer up a friend!  Again, I just did lots of layering and tucked in a little burlap, embellished with a butterfly and added a little twine. In a short amount of time I had 2 fun cards ready to go!

Maja Design products used in these projects:  Summer Crush 6×6 paper pad, Summer Crush 12×12 paper (Flirty, He Gives Her flowers, Snapshots, Long Summer Nights, Falling In Love-bs)
