Shabby inspiration

Today I want to share  some cards. Usually I make only Layouts, because I like to work on a 12×12 space. That is why creating cards is a challenge for me. But it doesn’t work for Maja papers. They can be easily combined in layering on the cards, that when I need a card, I know for sure that it won’t be so difficult with Maja collections.

This time I decided to combine the papers from 6×6 pad and from 12×12


I used the 6×6 1933 sheet for the background of my card, and added some layers with 1934 sheet of 12×12 from Vintage Summer Basics Collection


And you have already known that I am a mixed media girl, so I added some paint and gesso


And one more card on acrylic Butterfly sheet


I used Vintage Summer Basics Collection, and made some fussy cutting too


I made some stamping and decorated it with doily for the sentiment


So now you can see that it is quite easy to do shabby cards, all you can need is to add some embellishments or even any mediums if you like them as much as I do.

Products used: Vintage Summer Basics Collection: 1933, 1934, 1935;
