Making Retro Style Cards with Maja Design's Summer Crush!
Hi All! I'm so happy to share with you all today a couple of cards I made using the adorable summer collection 'Summer Crush' by Maja Design! I just love the 'Snapshots' paper, so many fun little vignettes to serve as centerpieces to a cute retro style card!
Maja Design paper is just made for layering. I start by choosing a favorite patterned paper like the polka-dot 'Flirty' paper. I distress the edges with a Tim Holtz Edge Distressor, then just start layering on more and more patterned papers. Tuck in a little burlap, some floral embellishments and a little wood-cut trellis (Scrapiniec), and you're done!
For my second card I again used the polka-dot pattern, this time in the blue and used the cute l'il blue guitar picture as my center piece. Perfect for a fun little card to cheer up a friend! Again, I just did lots of layering and tucked in a little burlap, embellished with a butterfly and added a little twine. In a short amount of time I had 2 fun cards ready to go!
Maja Design products used in these projects:
