Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today
With Christmas coming closer and closer, I think it’s a good moment to start some serious Christmas cardmaking 😉 For my today’s post I created two cards, using the latest Joyous Winterdays collection and the traditional holiday red and green palette:
Both my cards feature a manger scene chipboard pieces. In the first card I chose darker red and green flourish patterns layered upon light paper for contrast:
I covered the chipboard piece with crackle accents and decorated it with die-cut leaves and snowflakes, a petaloo flower, tiny pom-poms and crystals and an acrylic angel button:
In the other card I created a shadowbox frame for the chipboard piece, but as the card is to be mailed, I kept it just barely raised:
I covered the chipboard manger with glitter and decorated with a mulberry flower, large crystal that looks like frozen ice, and some die cuts:
I really love how easy it is to get a vintage, shabby look for your projects with Maja papers! Just perfect for traditional Christmas cards
And here’s what I used to make my cards:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Magnolia, Impression Obsession, Sizzix, Joy!; holly punch: Woodware; flowers: Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Wycinanka; glitter: Ranger; pom-poms, button: my stash.
I do hope you find some inspiration for your Christmas cards
See you soon!
Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present two cards. One is for the Wedding and the other for a Birthday. Floral, pastel colours with quite few layers. Take a look, please :
To create these cards I have used the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. It is really universal collection.
I don’t know why but I stop to use paper flowers recently.It will change … I’m pretty sure but for now I will enjoy the simplicity of my projects
Hope you like my project. If you are wondering about used materials here is the list : chipboard – Scrapiniec, digital graphic – Digital Paper and the paper : Maja Design
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
Did you celebrate the World Cardmaking Day last Saturday? I did, and among the cards I made I couldn’t miss using Maja papers! And here it is:
But this time I selected the “plain” sides of sheets, as sometimes I like them even more than the patterned ones 😉 I layered two sheets from the Vintage Summer Basics and I simply LOVE how this 1946 sheet gives the perfect pastel shabby background with those white lines! I’m a rather poor media user and I would never ever brush the background myself to get those lines 😀
I added the wreath pattern using a stencil and white texture paste, then mounted the embossed sentiment circle in the centre and surrounded it with flowers. Then I added a lace bow and some bling
And I really love how dimensional it turned out!
So sometimes those plain papers are as gorgeous as petterned sheets when it comes to a perfect background, don’t you think?
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Denim – Off white bs
Other: stencil: Agateria; stamp: Lemonade: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; lace, bling: my stash.
Thank you for visiting today and see you later!
Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have used the lovely Sofiero collection for this card. Its another shabby card, full of pastel colors, some layers, lace, flowers and some stitching.some close ups: the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. the butterflies I had fussy cut from the vintage spring collection, there is the entire sheet full of butterflies.
I love to fill the bottom part of the card with layers of lays, the real one, or the die cut one, like in this case.
the gorgeous Sofiero collection:
have a lovely cosy weekend,
