I’m doing a guest designer spot for Maja Design over on the Maja Design Blog this month, and this is the first of the cards I’ve made using their gorgeous papers. I used the Coffee in the Arbor collection – perfect for a pretty shabby chic card. The papers used on this card are Raspberry Jam Cookies, Raspberry Cupcake and Raspberry Lemonade.
I used the fab-u-las Butterflies stencil by Whimsy Stamps – yep, they’re doing stencils now! I used white embossing paste and before it dried I sprinkled some Distress Glitter onto the butterflies for a pop of the old bling. I also stamped around the edges of the cream layer with the new In Stitches stamps (also Whimsy, natch) using Walnut Stain ink.
And more new Whimsy goodies that I just had to use … The butterfly is from the Flight of the Butterflies stamp set, I used that amazing Happy Sayings stamp set and matching Happy Sayings Die Set because … my favourite die and stamp set ever … and I also used the Honeycomb Pattern die which I popped under the first layer.
Finished off with crinkled organza ribbon, twine and the obligatory flowers.
Have a great week.
