Welcome, friends! It’s Nancy with you on the Maja Design Blog. I’m thrilled you’re visiting with us on this beautiful day. Spring is well and truly arrived offering up it’s gifts of bright and beautiful flowers. I look out of my craft room window and marvel at the blooms in my garden, which are my inspiration for today’s card. I’m drawn once again to Maja Design’s Coffee in the Arbour paper collection. The colors are so fresh and cheery, just like a spring day!
Design papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. Handmade florals crafted from design papers are the focal point of the card. Frothy lace and loopy twine bows add a feminine touch.
Below is a close up of the stamped sentiment. I enjoying creating cards to keep on hand to suit multiple occasions, and this one will be perfect for those times I need a last minute card.
The curlicues are made by twisting strips of design paper around the tiny end of a paint brush. A script stamp adds a bit of interest to the corners.
Below is a peek of the interior of the card. Coordinating design papers and script stamping give a cohesive appearance with the front of the card.
