Letters from the Past for Maja Design!

Hello and happy Tuesday! I'm thrilled to share a new project for Maja Design with you! I'm getting in the swing of summer with a card created from Maja Design's beautiful Vintage Summer Basics collection.

I begin by distressing, layering, and stitching design papers to form a base for my card. Here, several layers of the same die cut are repeated in different patterns and directions.

A tiny Prima postcard stamp adds just the right touch in the top corner.

The flowers are handcrafted using design paper and dusted with gesso. Mini glass pearls are scattered here and there for a feminine touch.

The focal image is created using an older Inkadinkado stamp that's been gathering dust in my stamp cabinet.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my card. I truly appreciate your kind comments and so enjoy reading them! Don't forget to check out our June Mood Board Challenge on the Maja Blog. You still have plenty of time to play along. I send wishes for a wonderful, joyful day!
