Fan Card

Hi sweet friends! Popping in to wish you a wonderful weekend. It’s hot and sunny this morning in Tampa, I’m sure our summer storms will hit this afternoon as they have this past month. The storms bring relief from the heat, but much humidity .   .   . super bad hair days .   .   . LOL!

Today I have a sweet card to share that I had so much fun making. Hazel Freeman designed the pattern for the Association of Parchment Crafters members.

I love the soft pastel rainbow effect of the inner card. The design was relatively simple to work. I embossed the swirls and tiny leaves and added Prima flowers as accents.

Such a sweet card to give to a dear relative or friend, it’s appropriate for so many occasions. This is a perfect card for a beginner starting parchment craft, it covers the basics of tracing, embossing and cutting parchment paper.

Camellia Thank You Notecard

Hi friends, I’m back with a beautiful little notecard I’ve recently completed that I want to share with you.

IMG_0142 copy

I used a mix of parchment paper and regular card stock with this creation. The camellia flower is a pattern by Dorothy Holness that was published in July of 2008 in Parchment Craft Magazine. There are two other flowers that I’m currently working on to complete a trio of Thank You notecards.

I painted the leaves and stamens onto the parchment paper with Tombow markers. Once completely dry, I embossed the flower and the leaves using Pergamano embossing tools. The border of the parchment paper was perforated with a 4-Needle perforating tool and embossed with a star embossing tool.

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 adhered to the four corners of the parchment with PergaGlue.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I so appreciate your visits. I’ll be back soon with the other two notecards to the trio.

Whitework Flowers

Hi sweet friends, today I have a parchment card to share with you that I recently completed that captures the whitework technique of parchment craft.

Whitework Flowers 3

The flowers and leaves were traced onto regular parchment paper with a “white” pencil. I turned the parchment over and embossed it on the back side within the white pencil lines. After the first two layers of embossing were completed I removed the white pencil with Dorso oil. I let the parchment paper rest overnight in between the next three layers of embossing. The outer border was stippled with a one needle tool. Once the embossing was finished I used Dorso crayons to color the back side of the parchment paper and blended it with Dorso oil to create the beautiful peach color on the back side of the parchment paper. I folded the parchment paper on the fold line and inserted an inner card of white parchment paper. I pierced around the border through the four layers of parchment paper with a 2-needle perforating tool and finished it by cutting the picot edge with parchment scissors, cutting through four layers of parchment paper.

Peach Flowers

I created the card again with card stock and flowers that I made using Spellbinders cutting dies. The flowers were handmade using peach card stock. I sprayed iridescent gold glimmer mist onto the flowers and applied Krylon 18Kt. Gold ink on the edges of the larger flower and one of the smaller flowers. I sponged distressed inks (Tim Holtz) on the flowers, as well as the leaves before applying the glimmer mist and gold ink.

Wishing you all a wonderful upcoming weekend!
