Hello dear Maja friends!
Today two inspiration vintage christmas cards,
which I made with our latest Christmas/ Winter collection ‘Holidays in the alps’ .
Are you more the classic christmas color type – Red, green, gold –
or maybe more the winter type in blue shades and silver?
I think, there is something for every type in our paper collection.

a paper christmas doll from T. Holtz (Idea-ology)
the little one wanted to put on his bobble hat at all costs 🙂

a 3D christmas poinsettia made with a cutting die
I hope you’ve loved what I’ve created and been inspired
to make some christmas wishes cards of your own.
Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂
If you still celebrate the sadly vanishing tradition of sending Christmas cards, I guess it’s time to start to send them 🙂 And if you’re looking for some inspiration, let me share some shaped cards today:
I used the latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection. It contains several papers in darkest colours of the set and featuring beautiful damask patterns. Here I took the navy blue paper, applied a white stencil pattern upon it – just look at the gorgeous contrast! – and added embellishments:
The flower cluster includes foamiran poinsettias I made myself 🙂 I also added a die-cut manger scene:
There’s also a brown damask paper in the set:
I paired it with the burgundy paper and added some colour-matchign embellishments, with art clay angels made with a mold:
And, last but not least, the burgundy version of the same pattern:
Here I applied a snowflake pattern upon the paper and added a chipboard quotation from a Polish Christmas song. Then I added my embellishments, including a large Prima poinsettia, my handmade foamiran poinsettia and some twigs and leaves die cut from glitter cardstocks.
And here’s the whole set:
I really like how they turned out, glimmering and festively rich 🙂 What do you think?
Here’s my list of supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Other: stencils: Agateria, Heidi Swapp; flowers: Prima, handmade; dies: Marianne Design, Magnolia, Craft&You Design, Tim Holtz/Sizzix; chipboard: Scrapiniec; crystals, ribbon, mold: my stash.
That is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!
Hi everyone! Here I am with a late post using the gorgeous new papers from Maja Design’s latest Christmas Collection, Holiday in the Alps.
But for the leaves I have used some Monochromes from the collection Shades of Christmas, since there was no green colours in the new collection.
I have handpainted the image with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.
Under you get a closer look of some of the details.
I have added some white paint called White Gesso here and there all over the box. Maybe this box will be under someones three this Christmas?
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
