Hello again dear Maja fans.

We still have a amazing summer over here in the Netherlands with lots of sun and warm temperatures. They are even talking about a heatwave next week.

So in order to cool down a little , I made this Christmas card , you never start too early making them right? Maybe this year I will be done in time instead of making them at the last minute.

This one I made with some leftovers from projects I made earlier with the Vintage Frost Collection.

To create snow the snow on the edges I used Finnabair art extravagance paper texture paste.

To create dimension on the card I used foamtape to stick the pieces together.

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I was able to give you some inspiration with this card.

 

Wedding Envelope Card

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

While our summer Moodboard palette is absolutely gorgeous and up to my taste (check out the previous post!), for my today’s post I changed the colours entirely to go pinky mauve for a wedding. It’s been ages since I’ve made an envelope card and I thought I might as well make one 😉 But as Maja papers are nicely thick and sturdy, they aren’t perfect for a classic heavily folded envelope form. Therefore, I cheated a bit and made a card using only half of the sheet. And here it is:

I cut the She’s My Lady paper from the Vintage Romance collection diagonally and used the half with the fan in the corner, which is almost invisible and therefore suited for a wedding card. Using only half a paper made the same side of the paper to be the outside part and thus the flowery border around the page made a beautiful trim in front of the card 🙂 I sewed the bottom part and decorated the flap:

Inside the envelope I placed a writing cardstock piece that I decorated with a stamped and embossed ornament. I also embossed the wedding rings on the plate that masks the ribbon on the flap:

I really like the way the card turned out and how the patterns on the paper provided a beautiful background!

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; butterflies: Prima, home&you; stamps: Lemonade, Inkadinkado; ribbon, pearls: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting the blog today, drop by tomorrow for more inspiration!

Hello sweet Maja friends, I hope you have just a great summer as I have.

We have lots of sun for a while now with very nice warm temperatures. Only thing not so nice is that is that my craft room is at the attic and it’s super hot up there now.

But I did manage to make you this card. I used the summer crush collection for it.

I cut three pieces of paper  one a little smaller than the other one , distressed the edges and stuck them together with foamtape..

Took two straws and tied them together with a piece of lace and seambinding some flowers ,  two art boubles , a bit of sisal , a sentiment, and glued it all on the card.

Than I added a little paper texture paste  on the leaves , some withe splashes with white ink and voila, my card is done.

Hope you enjoy it and gives you some inspiration to create your own card.

Thank you very much for your visit. Make shure you come back tomorrow to see some more lovely work from one of the other MajaGirls.

Hi everyone! I am back with a purple card today, with a few papers from the lovely Fika collection.

The main image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers. I have stamped the image from Stempelglede on The Langton watercolour paper.

I have tried to use the same colours as the papers when I was colouring the vintage garden stamp.

The text says “You are special” and is also from Stempelglede. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And I have put some sisal grass behind them. The shape of the card is made with a die from Go Kreate.

I have added different layers onto the card.

I really hope you are having a lovely weekend! I am soon of on my Summer holiday, which this year will be Spain. By the way, this card was published in the Norwegian Magazine Ett Trykk.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Friends.

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I bring you this card.

 

Today is the official first day of the summer , and so I decided to use the summertime collection to create this card with.

I love making cards with an extra twist ,so made this what shall I call it dangle card?

When you open the card you find a dangle of roses , I cut out of a sheet of Smell the roses.

 

 

I used the two bikes because well ,we dutch are not only known for the mills , tulips and wooden shoes ,  but we are also known for our many bikes.

I love to ride my bike and use it daily for fun but also for running errands .

And saying that I’m going to hop on my bike to bring this card to the post office than  it can be sent to my friend  so she”ll how much you appreciate her.

thank you very much for visiting our blog and hope you get some inspiration by this card.
