White Rose Thank You NoteCard – 3rd In The Series

Published by under Projects in General

Hey there sweet friends, welcome back! Today I’m happy to share with you the third and final card in a series of Thank You notecards I’ve been working on.

White Rose 1

The card was made with regular parchment paper and card stock. The rose is a pattern drawn by Dorothy Holness (as I stated in a previous post, I’m such an enormous fan of Dorothy’s designs) that was published in July of 2008 in Parchment Craft Magazine. This design is the third card in a series of three Thank You notecards that I’ve completed.

I traced the flower and bud onto a piece of parchment paper with white lead. Using Tombow markers, I painted the leaves on the parchment paper by placing the parchment over the pattern and painting within the lines of the leaves. Once the parchment was completely dry, I embossed the flower and bud using the shadow embossing technique. After the initial layer of embossing, I removed the white lead by gently rubbing Dorso Oil over the traced lines with a Kleenex tissue. I applied another four layers of embossing to the flower over a three day period, letting the parchment paper rest between layers of embossing. I absolutely love the petals on this rose. I embossed the leaves using Pergamano embossing tools. The border of the parchment paper was perforated with a 4-Needle perforating tool and embossed with a 2mm star embossing tool.

White Rose 3

When it comes to parchment craft patterns, you can customize them to fit whatever ideas you may have in mind. I re-worked these flower patterns to design a series of Thank You notecards.

White Rose 4

I layered the parchment paper onto olive green and brown card stock layers and then attached the panel to cream card stock folded into a small card. The edges of the card stock layers were painted with a Krylon 18Kt. Gold pen. Small gold pearls were used as embellishments on the four corners of the parchment with PergaGlue.

Due to the high cost of ecommerce fees, i.e., maintaining a storefront, yahoo internet fees and commissions, as well as paypal fees, I have closed my internet store. However, I am still selling nearly the complete line of Pergamano products. I have created a page at the top of my blog (underneath the blog banner) entitled “Pergamano Products“. Click on the button to see the products, item numbers, as well as prices. If you’d like to place an order, make a list of the items, with the code number and send me the list in an email. I will email you back with a total for your review and acceptance and then send an invoice via Paypal once you’ve approved the order.

White Rose Thank You Notecard

Good morning all! I’m back today with the second card in a series of Thank You notecards I’ve been working on. I think this one is my favorite of the three.

White Rose 12a

The card was made with regular parchment paper and card stock. The rose is a pattern drawn by Dorothy Holness (I’m an enormous fan of Dorothy’s designs) that was published in July of 2008 in Parchment Craft Magazine. This rose is the second in a series of three Thank You notecards that I’m currently working on.

I started by tracing the flower only onto a piece of parchment paper with white lead. Using Tombow markers, I painted the leaves on the parchment paper by placing the parchment over the pattern and painting within the lines of the leaves. Once the parchment was completely dry, I embossed the flower using the shadow embossing technique. After the initial layer of embossing, I removed the white lead by gently rubbing Dorso Oil over the traced lines with a Kleenex tissue. I applied another four layers of embossing to the flower over a three day period, letting the parchment paper rest between layers of embossing. I embossed the leaves using Pergamano embossing tools. The border of the parchment paper was perforated with a 4-Needle perforating tool and embossed with a 2mm star embossing tool.

This is Dorothy’s original creation. She used the three flowers panels as inserts inside this three sided acrylic pencil/pen holder. When it comes to parchment craft patterns, you can customize them to fit whatever ideas you may have in mind. I re-worked the flower patterns to design a series of Thank You notecards.

White Rose 11a

I layered the parchment paper onto olive green and brown card stock layers and then attached the panel to cream card stock folded into a small card. The edges of the card stock layers were painted with a Krylon 18Kt. Gold pen. Small gold pearls were used as embellishments on the four corners of the parchment with PergaGlue.

Parchment Park Bench

Good Monday morning sweet friends! Summer is here and with it come summer rains and summer blossoms. I don’t know about you but that inspires me to get into my craft room and get creative. I love working in my craft room listening to the summer storms, drinking coffee and relaxing with whatever project I happen to be working on.
Park Bench 2

Inspiration to work this gorgeous pattern comes from a black wrought iron bench near my front door and a stone bench located near my azaleas. When I saw this pattern, I knew I wanted to create this card. I changed the borders a bit and enlarged the pattern as I wanted the card to be larger than the original design. The pattern is in a book entitled Art of Nature written by Dutch artist and designer Hiskia Wittenaar.

Park Bench 1

I love the softness of the color palette! It was relatively easy to paint, I used Pergamano Perga Liners (water color pencils). The leaves and flowers were painted with a #1 watercolor brush, the tendrils were painted with a #0 watercolor brush. The flowers and leaves were gently embossed with small embossing ball tools. The image was painted on regular parchment paper, dorsed with a white dorsing crayon on the reserve side. The bench was embossed, the lattice was cut with parchment scissors after perforating with a 2-split needle tool. I used a semi circle perforating tool around the border of the painted image and used a 3-needle perforating tool around the outer edge of the inner card using parchment scissors to cut both borders.

Park Bench 3

The inner card is made of regular parchment paper that I dorsed green with an earth green dorso crayon, blending with dorso oil for a smooth even finish. The seat of the park bench was perforated with a 1-needle perforating tool using a fine mesh grid. Unfortunately the perforations are not showing well in the photos, if you enlarge the photos you can see the perforations.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I so enjoy your visits and hearing from you. I wish you all a wonderful week!
