Maja Design...New Vintage Spring Collection

Happy Easter to all of my Christian friends! And happy Sunday to all! I was lucky enough to get some exciting mail last week....Maja Design's new Vintage Spring Basics collection! So Thursday I posted this card on the Maja Design blog and I thought I would share it here as well:

This card specifically features the 5th of May (both sides) and the 7th of May. In real life, the colors are a cross between the softest of pinks and subtle hints of plum. Therefore I added both colors to my card, pink with the flowers, satin ribbon and pearls and plum with the background papers and the iridescence of the crystals. The white flowers also have a pink/plum sheen to them. I added several mats (5 to be exact) and a small dotted scallop border across the top. The sentiment panel is a Floral Oval beneath a Labels Eighteen die. I sponged the inside of the top die with Pale Plum ink and stamped the verse in Cocoa ink. I also added a perimeter of liquid pearls for a bit more elegance. Here’s a view to show you the dimension…(aka not easily mailable! )

I also added Pennant Trim die border to the bottom of the lace panel and adhered a Swarovski crystal to each banner (which I ended up covering up most of them). Included as well are several Zva pearl lines across the horizontal lace panel.

Here’s a glimpse of the lovely papers contained in this collection:

Here's the Verve Plain Jane that I used:
