It's a Girl with Maja Design

Hello friends!

As you can see, I'm busy catching up with posts and DT assignments and today, it's a card for Maja Design. I realise that ever since I started with them I've been making a lot more cards and that's because their papers are perfect for just about any type of paper crafting! It also means I have more personalized gifts for people who have been a great part of my life and in this digital age, a handmade card is definitely something refreshing to get in your mailbox.

So here is the card:


I got a pack of the Crea Diem collection in my box but the colors are so nicely muted that I mixed it with some cut-outs from the Vintage Baby collection which I have left over, to make this Baby Girl card for a friend who is due to have hers soon.

Some close-ups:


A simple background of mists from 13@rts and stenciled texture paste over my layers of papers, plus my must-have floral cluster. Some stamping with a vine stamp as well to create the effect of spreading leaves and direction.


Another must-have - Blue Fern Studios chipboard which I have layered 4 different shades of pink/lilac on for a dimensional look.

And that's all I have for today. Thank you for dropping by!

love,
