Christmas Cards Using Maja Design and Chipboard from Creative Emebllishments


 It's officially the Christmas Season!  

Today I have Christmas cards crafted with a combination of Maja Design's new Christmas collection, some fabulous festive chipboard from Creative Embellishments and decorated with die cuts from Spellbinders APG - Amazing Paper Grace monthly die club for November designed by Becca Feeken.      

I plan on sending more cards than usual this season because of the limitations in travel and gatherings allowed due to COVID.  These restrictions are making Christmas card lists rather long this year.

The Paper

Fans of Maja Design papers from Sweden anxiously await the release of the Christmas collection each year.  This season's collection, called Traditional Christmas features the sweetest elves and may be my personal Maja Design favorite. 

 Here is the promotional collage of the collection with elf images that will steal your heart.  

The Chipboard Embellishments

Creative Embellishments has a large selection of seasonal chipboard perfect for using on a variety of projects.  I tend to keep the treatments of the chipboard quite basic, using paint or heat embossing to alter /color them.  

 Here are the chipboard pieces I used on the cards today:  Merry Christmas Titles,  Mini Berry WreathsSleigh Bells.


The card below features the "Merry Christmas Sentiment" from the Merry Christmas Titles chipboard set, but the chipboard has been painted with cream colored acrylic paint.

Spellbinders Evergreen and Poinsettia Dies (APG Die of the Month for November)

The card above and below have been decorated with dies from  Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Membership for November.  The set included a gorgeous poinsettia and evergreen die in addition to an ornate sled (which is not shown).  

This card features the Sleigh Bells chipboard set from Creative Embellishments.   The strap has been inked and the bells and buckle were embossed with gold embossing powder and heat set.

The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from the Merry Christmas Titles chipboard set.  This set is wonderful because it comes with five sets of words in different festive fonts.    These have all been heat embossed with gold as well.

 Thank you for visiting.  Happy crafting.
