Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today!
I still drool over the latest collection, Summertime 🙂 It’s so fresh, optimistic and light, and so versatile! Perfect for summer projects, but universal enough for other occasions too. And so for my today’s post I created these three best-wishes cards, using the small paper pad:
Each Maja Design collection is so designed as to contain various colour schemes, and it’s quite easy to make monochromatic or shade-consistent projects. I made my cards focusing on particular colours. And so one of the cards accents the burgundy red paired with light creme:
I placed the stamped sentiment in a chipboard frame in the centre, added mulberry roses corresponding to the printed ones, some brads and a decorative borders. Glitter adds some glam too:
The second card focuses on pink tones – and as I couldn’t make up my mind as to which patterns to use, I chose a patchwork background to show as many as possibble 😉
The background is pretty “busy”, so I limited the embellishments to a chipboard frame with the sentiment, a couple of roses and stirng bows. Liquid pearl dots and glitter were the finishing touch:
And last but not least, a blue-toned card with a charming image of a flowered bicycle:
Plaid is one of my all-time favourite patterns, so I thought this one would make a perfect background that would make the flowers pop out. I also added some chipboard elements, a button, vintage ribbon and pearl stripes to make my card look sweet and feminine:
I think the small paper pad is a perfect choice for cardmakers – and which version do you prefer?
For my cards I used the small sheets of the following designs:
Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; button: 3rd Eye; brads: October Afternoon; chipboard: Wycinanka, Scrapiniec, Magiczna Kartka; glitter, liquid pearls: Ranger; ribbon, pearls: my stash.
Have a nice day and see you later!
