Summertime Cards

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!

  • WAUW these cards are absolutely gorgeous. I simply can´t pick one favorite either, as they´re all soooo beautiful and well made, and I love details on all of them ehre, and just want to remake them all right away here, even I know too well, I don´t have the time for that, but I sure have the desire ha ha ha. It´s really stunning work, well done clever lady.
    Have a wonderful day everyone and lots of great fun, I hope.
