Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
In my previous post I shared some Winter Is Coming collection inspiration, so today the time is for the other new release, Traditional Christmas. With its lovely vintage colour combo of ecru beige, muted red and soft green is just perfect for traditional Christmas cards. And so I made two 🙂
I chose the same background layering of papers, with light top pattern, for both cards and to make the patterns well visible in a small space of the cards, I used the small pad version of the papers:
In one card I arranged a manger scene, decorated with handmade foamiran poinsettia and some die-cut leaves. I heat-embossed the sentiment directly onto the background with gold ep. Together with metallic god cardstock of the manger and glitter leaves, the card beautifully shines and glimmers against the light:
For the other card I went more clean&simple – that is, for my taste 😉 I just applied some intricately cut chipboard snowflakes and sentiment and added some liquid pearls dots. A touch of glitter and opalescent sequins add glam to the card:
With a lot of darker patterns in the Traditional Christmas collection it’s still easy to make brighter projects too – don’t you just love this versatility of each Maja collection? I certainly do!
Here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers (in the small pad version):
Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; dies: Magnolia, Craft&You Design; stamp: Lemonade; glitter, liquid pearls: Ranger; sequins: my stash.
Have you made any Christmas cards yet? If you’re still looking for some inspiration, I hope you’d find my cards helpful 🙂
See you soon!
Once again you´ve made some truly amazing cards here Maja. I love the glittery part of this here for Christmas, cause who don´t like a bit of glitter and sparkle for the holiday? I believe we all do and you´ve shown it perfectly in this lovely card here. Both are truly amazing and so beautiful.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful time out there and enjoying the preparations for the big Holiday. Have fun and a very Merry Christmas to everyone here.
