Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
It’s been a while since I did some colouring, so for today’s post I decided to create a set of two baptism cards, for a boy and girl, that feature a hand-coloured stamped image. And here it is:
I kept the same design for both cards, just changing the colour paletter between girly pink and boyish turqouise 🙂 The design is very simple: layered panels of papers, the top one with a decorative border that you can cut using decorative scallop scissors, or even hand cut, so you don’t even need dies.
Then I placed the image of a sleeping baby that I coloured with Distress inks:
…and added a heat-embossed stamped sentiment with baptism formula in Polish and surrounded it with flowers:
I mounted the particular layers on 3D foam for some nice dimension:
There is also a bit of glam to the cards with subtle golden shine of the embossed stamp and crystal and pearl drops.
I wanted to keep the cards simple but elegant – and I think I succeded in that 🙂 What do you think?
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Celebration – Vintage Teal
Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose
Other: stamps: Lemonade, Whiff of Joy; flowers, vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; pearls, crystals, string: my stash.
And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!
Hello sweet Maja fans.
It’s thursday again and my turn to show you what I have made with the gorgeous papers of Maja Design.
Today I bring you this Baby card. We got happy news from friends of ours they are expecting a baby girl .
Im so happy for them and decided to make a baby card to congratulate them.
For this card I used the uber sweet collection of Vintage baby.
I used my spellbinders ovals to cut out the baby image of the sheet It’s a Girl! and crochet a cute little lacy edge around it.
I cut out a piece of the corner to use on the front and inside of the card.
For the back ground I used Flowers for mum and a piece of the bottom strip at the side underneath it I attached some lace.
on the inside I used a tag ,the baby girl sentiment, the stamp with It’s a girl from the sheet with die cuts . The journaling card is from the sheet journaling cards pink.
At the bottom I glued the strip from First teddy bear.
To give the card a little extra pizzazz I took my sewing machine and added some stitches to the card.
I’m really in love with this collection and think about making a minialbum with it as well.
For now I hope you enjoy this baby card as much as I do.
Thank you very much for visiting and make shure you come back for more inspiration from the other Maja Girls

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.
