Today I'd like to share a couple of cards I have recently made using the gorgeous Bohemian Harmony
collection of papers by Maja Design
available at The Mad Scrapper.
The collection pack has 12 double sided papers plus 4 coordinating plain papers and an extra sheet on the back of the cover. It is also available in a 6x6 pad too. But here I am showing that the 12x12 papers can be perfect for card making too.
This first card is for a New Job. I have covered the front of a 6x6 card blank with one side of the chosen paper and then used the other side for the top layer keeping the leaf in the top corner. I then stamped 3 sentiments making the largest into a tag which has been cut from a Magnolia Die, the 2 largest stamps are by Verve Stamps and the tiny one is from my stash. I added a Mini series flower in cobalt
and a acetate leaf both by 49 and Market .
To finish off I added Self-Adhesive Pearls - Denim
and sand. Along with twine to the tag and a couple of brown tiny roses from my stash.
This next card I made for my Niece who just turned 21. This is a 7x7 card blank with the top edge of the front removed using a Spellbinders die showing the strip of paper I added to the back.
I started by gathering items. I thought I would use Self-Adhesive Pearls
again but this time I would colour the white ones with a brown Copic pen I cut out some stars, a 21 and then a piece off one of the label strips.
I chose a image from the Snapshots
page and mounted it on to one of the coordinating plain papers and added some blue lace from my stash. I cut an oval from Rustic Flowers
and added it to the plain brown coordinating paper. You can see I have distressed all the edges.
Then on to make the front of the card. I took a piece of Feel alive
and removed the far right edge with the same die. I back stitched the edge with brown embroidery floss and added it to the card base. I took a small strip and mounted it on brown and placed it down on the left side.
Here in this next photo you can a peek at the paper inside the card before the verse sheet goes in. You can see I added the 21 which I cut in brown glitter paper along with the "st" which I matted on blue and added to the back strip. I dotted the pearls around along with the stars and the Happy sentiment which hangs slightly over the edge.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope this will inspire you to use some of your amazing papers for smaller projects too.
Till next time, keep safe.
