Hello everyone, a very warm welcome to Maja Design blog. Today I am showcasing another easel card with stacked elements .One of my fave patterns is gingham check ..there is something very soft and feminine about gingham, especially pink and white …When I saw the beautiful pink and White gingham papers I decided to create a card for a friend of mine. The soft silver/grey tone on the ribbon completes the card adding the perfect contrast to the pink and white. I have beautiful memories of some gingham dresses our Auntie made my twin sister and me when we were about 5 years old .We had 2 gingham dresses, one was blue and white and the other one was pink and white, with a big bow tied at the back… We loved to twirl and dance to music, such fun memories to treasure . Pink and white to me has such a soft and delicate feel to it. I think it will always be popular as it seems to come and go the full circle. I mixed the pink and white with the pale greys and spots . Lots of diecuts layered with perfect tone on tone….with a chipboard heart and arrow sitting on the top of the stack .
Look at those layers !!!!! Sometimes I do get a little carried away with the layering, and have to remove some of the diecuts. I have such fun watching the height grow and grow and have to remember when to stop . ( insert smile ) The inside is lined with the pink and white gingham and a delicate scrolled piece of chipboard holds the easel section in place .
I took a shot from the top of the stacked layers to give you an idea of the depth and texture of this card. Maja Design Collections used…Vintage Autumn Basics / No XVI / No XII ….
