A Quick Card {With Maja Design}

 
Hi everyone!  We just got back from a little mini-vacay visiting my brother and his family at his lake house, so nice to spend a week just relaxing and having fun with family!  But I realized I have a post I needed to get done for Maja, speedy-fast!  So I thought, what better time of year to show that not all projects done with Maja goodies need to be overly detailed or time consuming.  This card came together quick and easy.

I used a scrap of pink paper I had left over from another project from the Sofiero collection as my background, lightly inked and distressed the edges and tore a little 'V" having some of the rose paper peeking out from behind (I simply used a cut off strip from the title part of the paper for this).  I then cut out 2 little 'postcard' designs from one fo the Vintage Spring Basics papers and added a clock from a Vintage Autumn Basics paper as an embellishment.  Here are the papers I used for this card....




I used these Maja Design products:  Sofiero-Enjoying the Fragrance-bs, Vintage Autumn Basics-XVI, Vintage Summer Basics-Memories.

TIP:  I like to save the little strips you cut off from the bottoms of the pages to use on cards, they have great little phrases and designs!

So, how long did this card take me?  15 minutes!!  Yep, even during the holidays you can get a little scrapping on if you can just cut out a tiny bit of time for yourself!  Thanks for stopping by today and I just want to say I've so enjoyed being on the Maja Design team for this past year and look forward to sharing lots of new and fun ideas with you all over the next year! xo xo
