Welcome to the blog today, Maja Fans
It’s Maja here to share two cards with which I mean to prove you can use Maja Design theme collections all the year round
I love playing with theme papers and use them for other occassions too. Thus you don’t need to put your Christmas papers away for a year in January For instance, would you say this wedding card was made using Vintage Winter papers?
But it is! I used the brown, red and cream sheets for the gorgeous ornate background:
I stamped some crackles onto the top layer and added a bunch of roses, resin frame and metal butterflies:
Then I added vintage ribbon sprayed with golden mist to match the frame colour:
For the backround bottom layers you can use even theme-patterned papers, details such as snowflakes or Santa Clauses won’t be visible clearly
Supplies: Vintage Winter: Chocolate, December, Season’s Greetings. Other: resin frame: RetroKraft Shop; stamps: Kaisercraft, Lemonade; butterflies: Trimcraft; flowers&leaves, ribbon: from my stash.
But this doesn’t apply to winter/Christmas papers only. This baby boy welcome card is used with the marine papers
Well, OK, this one is to some extent marine-themed, but I could have omitted the little whale and washi tape and it would look just as ordinary baby boy card, right?
I layered several stripes and stars design, die-cut the onesie and coloured it with Promarkers to give it some dimension and matted it with a piece of cheesecloth. Can you see those cute tiny button brads?
I used a piece of paper with the signature stripe visible – aren’t those little elements really useful?
Supplies: Life by the Sea: The East Coast, Marina Hovering bs, Islands and Skerries bs, Regatta bs. Other: dies: Sizzix, Poppy Stamps; brads: Making Memories; washi tape: Dekoracyjna Taśma; charm, cheesecloth, linen string: from my stash.
