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. Pink and White Gingham          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 .April pink and white gingham heart          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 . April pink and white gingham layers    Lots of diecuts layered with perfect tone on tone….with a chipboard heart and arrow sitting on the top of the stack . April pink and white gingham side view

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 .
