An Easter Garden!

 Hello, friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely day. I'm relishing the beautiful weather and staying busy as ever in my craft room with my Easter preparations. I'm thrilled to be presenting on the Maja Design Blog today. I have a new card to share, once again featuring my embellished Easter eggs and two styles of handmade flowers.  

Two of my favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Autumn Basics and Vintage Summer Basics, are used in the creation of this card. As usual, the paper is distressed, layered and stitched to form a base. One of the many things I adore about Maja Design paper is the way it behaves much like fabric when I'm working with it. As you can see, I really put it to the test and it holds up every time.

You'll find a blooming rose and a wildflower gracing my little garden. The link for the Easter egg tutorial can be found here, the wildflower tutorial can be found here, and the blooming rose tutorial can be found here, if you'd like to add them to your own creations.  

Design paper is border punched and layered to anchor the egg and florals. A die cut Spellbinder's frame is tucked in behind the egg. A die cut flourish, ribbon and cheesecloth add a soft touch.

Thank you so much for visiting! If you love Maja Design Papers but don't know where to find them, you can locate the store finder here.
