“Delight yourself….” shabby card using Maja Design’s!!

Hello everyone!

I’m glad you stopped in today! I’ve got a card share on today’s post that I made last year…I know, I’m a little late sharing it, but better late than never! 

I made this card for my dad’s 83rd birthday at the end of last year keeping in mind that when I made him a card a couple of years ago he mentioned he didn’t like dark colors…so here you go! LOL  

This collection by Maja Designs is called “Crea Diem” and has all his favorite shades of blue and gray!! I though it was absolutely a soft design with “boy” colors 🙂 just my dad’s taste!

In the video I shared the card I made but didn’t share the tutorial until I thought, “I’ll just make another one that’s similar so I can share a short tutorial”! So, I did! It’s soooo simple to put together.

Here’s a pic of my dad’s card. The video will follow! Enjoy!:)

 Here is the tutorial card, it has a more feminine softer feel!
