Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

In many countries Mother’s Day was already celebrated, but in Poland it comes on May 26th, so just in two days πŸ™‚ And since my getting married I have two moms, I made two cards for the occasion, using the latest collection by Maja Design, Denim & Girls:

For the foccal points of my cards I chose images from the Girls In Jeans sheet. As jeans and laces are totally my thing πŸ˜‰ I thought the images would represent me giving flowers to my moms.

In one card I stamped and embossed the sentiment diretly onto the image piece and then mounted it over layered papers and added some mini roses and a filigree chipboard flourish:

As I like adding tiny elements to my projects, I cut out a star tag from the signature strip and accented it with glitter:

In the other card I mimicked the jeans-lace layers from the image, using paper and cotton lace, and then added a resin heart filled with miniroses. Glitter and some bling add the glamour touch:

I hope my moms would like the cards – do you? πŸ™‚

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; bling, string, lace – my stash.

So that’s all for today, thank you for visiting – and happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there!

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

I know many of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland this holiday comes on May 26th. And so for my today’s post I have two simple shabby chic cards for moms πŸ™‚

Both are made using the Sofiero collection – soft, delicate colours and beautiful designs are simply perfect for the occasion. And so in the first card I layered sand-coloured papers in the background and placed two cut-out images on top. Then I added the sentiment in a decorative die frame and some mini roses:

I slightly distressed the edges of papers to give them a more shabby look. Small pearls are a cherry on top πŸ˜‰

For the background of the other card I embossed the Monochromes white/sand paper to add some texture:

Then I placed a flowery tag on top onto which I stamped my sentiment. I put a decorative chipboard frame on top so that the sentiment pops out πŸ™‚

I finished my card off with a small flower cluster:

Though simple, the cards still were a kind of a challenge for me: I had to make them flat enough to go into envelopes to be mailed πŸ™‚ With my love for dimension that was sooo hard! πŸ™‚

And here’s what I used:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Lemonade; dies: Sizzix; brads: Craftmania; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon, string: my stash.

 

Have a nice day and see you soon!
