Hello all you wonderful people <3

Today I want to start my blog post by telling you how wonderful you all are <3 <3 <3 Whatever you create with your creativity, you are all great on your own way <3

Today I am ready for a new blog post for Maja Design, one card in Shabby Chic and the second card is in Vintage. This is the first offcial cards I created for Maja Design, I’ll be honest with you, I’m a little nervous, since card maiking is ot my strongest side.

Since I only think of wedding constantly, I have made two Wedding Cards I will share with you and both made with the Vintage Romance collection.

Both cards are punched out with a dies from Go Kreate called Frilly #7

The biggest part I’ve also cut out a square of white card which i have attached with double-sided tape on the back side. This I have done because the back of the card should be completely white. I also cut out two smaller squares that one can write a greeting on, but because it will be easier to write on these when it is not on the card, I have not attached the little card on the back of the card yet.

All the layers are built up with 3D foam pads and in all corners, I have two sets with 3D foam pads.

The card in Vintage is made of brown and bright tones.

When the cards was built up, I have used two oval dies from Sizzix, in between these two layers, I’ve attached one lace before I put them on the card with 3D foam pads.

The Dies with the text Bride and Groom is a dies from kaBoks. Here I first cut it out in moss rubber and then paper. The one in paper I have embossed with Walnut Stain from Distress Ink, before I put them on the card.

On the card I have used several different flowers in white tones and in between all the flowers I have used frosted berries in brown. The flowers I have used are from Wild Orchids.

The leaves I have used are punched out with a dies from Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps. I have used the same brown Embossing powder on the edge of the leaves.

Up in one of the corners, I have used white ribbon and a brown button with a bow.

The second card is the same card just made ​​in Shabby Chic.

I’ve used the same Dies on this card. But instead of using embossing powders in brown, I have used Weathered Wood from Distress Ink. This is a great color, that match the pink and the bright tones that this card is built up with.

The flowers I have used are from Wild Orchids and in between them, I have used pink frosted berries.

I’ve tried to make the cards so that the details are placed opposite on each card.

Rather than using a button in brown, I have used a button in gray on the top of the card.

What I think is so nice with the sheets from Maja Design, is that you can use multiple sheets to the same project without having to be afraid that it does not fit together. Therefore it is always so much fun to create projects with Maja Design and special when you can use 6 different patterned sheets one the same card. Maybe you have it on the same way as me and get the feeling that Maja Design just here absolutely perfect for whatever you whant to make <3

  • I don´t think many can believe, that this is not your strongest sides to make cards, as these are totally amazing and very very beautiful. You´ve certainly made some really awesome ones here, and they´re both very very beautiful and I´m sure, whoever will recieve these will agree with me on that and keep them as treasures forever.
    I totally agree about the papers, they are truly amazing for whatever project, you´re making, that´s for sure.
