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

You have already had a chance to see some Christmas cards inspirations from my talented DT friends, using the latest Maja Design release, the Christmas Season collection. And here are mine too 🙂

I decided to feature both sets of the collection’s colour palette: the classic Christmas red and green and the very wintery blue and ecru.

For the first card I used a chipboard layered Christmas bauble as my focal element.

I layered the selected background papers and covered the bauble base with polka dot red sheet. Then I added the top filigree layer embossed with golden ep and decorated with a button and pearls. I also added the flower cluster to the top of the bauble:

The second card features a die-cut snowflake with a manger scene button:

To decorate it, I added a flower cluster with vintage seam ribbon bow and some postcards cut out from one of the papers. Various winter leaves and the snowflake are die-cut from glitter cardstock and they look like iced snow, glistening against the light! I also added some liquid pearls dots to imitate snow falling:

The cards are both a little dimensional, but will still fit into envelopes – perfect to mail to family and friends 🙂

And here’s what I used to create my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Sizzix, Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; buttons: 3rd Eye; liquid pearls: Viva Decor.

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here , today it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration.

Today I have this Christmas card for you made with the wonderful Christmas collection Joyous winterdays and Monochromes- Shades of Winterdays.

For the card topper / centerpiece I made a rosette  using the Tim Holtz minipaper rosettes die.

I used a a 1.5″ circle puch for  the Santa picture , it comes from the vintage frost Basics 14th of December sheet.

The scallop circles underneath are made with  Spellbinders Nestabilities.

Behind it all you see a snowflake made with the snowflake die  of the Winter trails collection from studio Light.

 

I added an seambinding bow and some “snow” made with paper texture paste from Finnabair to complete the card and winter feeling.

Thank you for visiting , I hope you like the christmas card I made for you and that it gave you inspiration to get crafty.

Make shure you come back for lots more inspiration given by the other wonderful Maja Girls.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Season Cards and a Video Tutorial with Elena

Hello Maja Friends. Have you seen the new Christmas collection – Christmas Season? I think it is a good occasion to start Christmas preparations isn’t it?

I have already made a bunch of cards with it.

Well, no doubt I started making my cards with focusing on the beautiful ladies from this collection – really unusual for the Christmas theme and so feminine .

The florals – roses are also something nontraditional but look how it makes the cards to look wintery and festive at the same time

Except for the fussy cutting the roses and the Lady – this time I focused on creating the different background for my cards using almost the same papers I used fr the cards set as well as mixing the leftovers and negatives of the die cuts.

It was quite easy to do and you can check my video tutorial on how I made it here

I used the papers from 12×12 and 6×6 paper pad, as well as added the Monochromes – Shades of Christmas, that match the patterned papers perfectly.

The images I used mostly from the smaller size of the paper, and for the fussy cutting I used the 12×12 paper sheets.

Recently I’ve started to use only paper embellishments for my cards  and it’s quite easy to make with Maja papers – all you need are the scissors and /or die cutting machine

I also made “non-floral Christmas cards” too

I always liked to used blue and white for my Christmas cards and I admit that traditional colors such as green, red are not boring for sure, but I like the cards to be of all colors . So what I love about Maja papers and their collections, especially for Christmas, is that everyone can find something of their own taste.

I’ve only added there a few cut out roses – but it still looks like for Christmas Season
