Hello! I wish a warm welcome to all visitors here at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, sharing my ‘Garden Gate’ card. I’m completely in love with Maja Design’s beautiful new paper collection, Vintage Romance. I’m featuring it today along with the lovely Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

You’ll find quite a bit of layering and fussy cutting in this card. All of the embellishments except the chipboard gates are created from the design paper. The faux brick wall is courtesy of Gabrielle Pollacco’s Tuscan Wall stencil and crackle texture paste.

The flowers are handcrafted from design paper and a Sizzix die using glass pearls as a center. You’ll find natural twine and cheesecloth accents for a soft, whimsical touch.

Below are close ups of the layering and embellishments. Each layer is popped up with foam adhesive for a dimensional effect.

Random splatters of acrylic paint add a little interest in the corners.
