Maja Design's December Mood Board

Mornin' Maja friends! It's time for some glorious new inspiration at Maja Design...with....a chance to win some lovely papers for yourself! The December mood board has been released and all you have to do is make a card/scrapbook page based on the sweet sentiments and heart-warming pictures and you could find yourself with a special package from Sweden! Here's a look at the card I made with this board using Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics collection:

No stamping on this card! The sentiment was cut from the Vintage Frost Basic's die cut page and I simply sponged the edges before attaching the banner. The frames are various sizes of Romantic Rectangles with layers of vellum in between. I've had that blue snowflake ribbon for forever and just now was able to use it. I free hand drew some mittens and cut them out of a piece of  4th of December paper. I applied some puffy paint to the tops to give the appearance of a fur lining. I also added a bunch of punched snowflakes, first doused in coarse crystal glitter, and then added to that mix some snowflake buttons. Protruding from the top left and bottom right are Elegant Scrollwork die cuts.

Here is our inspiration:

Here is the down-low on the Mood Board challenge:

The mood boards will be presented the first Tuesday every month. We will be presenting all participating creations that fulfill the requirements below December 31st. We will also draw a winner who will be winning a Maja Design collection of their own choice in 6×6 or 12×12.

After your creation is done, take a photo and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu without any watermarks (size 600×600). Include your full address in the e-mail and what collection you would like if you win. Don’t forget to write down if you would like 6×6 or 12×12. We need your creation by December 29th at the latest. Good Luck!
