Cards with Maja Design papers

Today I want to share a couple of cards I've created with the Vintage Autumn collection by Maja design. These papers are so gorgeous and are suitable for any occasion. I think this card would be the perfect wedding card.

The pink roses are handmade. I make a lot of handmade flowers these days. It takes a while to get the hang of it, at least for me, but once you master the technique it's so much fun.

I also discovered a new technique, by accident acctually. I was going to color in the leaves with Distress Ink, but my ink pad was too dry. I ended up placing the die cut leaves right on top of the pad and rubbed the ink on and voila! I got this great effect where the white still shows up on the leaves. Love it. I'll be using this technique a lot on future projects.

Next up is a card with almost the same colors but instead of white accent color I used black. I like both effects. It depends on what you're going for. This is a birthday card and I used a wreath I bought for Christmas projects, but I think it looks just as great on other type of cards.
