Parchment Card

Hi Everybody,

This is a little card that I made on the C&C shows and it was in the demo showing how to emboss the parchment that is on the front.

The flowers and bow centre are from Wild Orchid Crafts    and the  Satin ribbon is from Mei Flower

The parchment that I used is quite thick and I bought it from AnnaMarie Designs  and it embossed really well.

Altogether a really pretty card to send for any occasion.

The picture was taken early this morning and is not very clear and one of the workshops we did while I was in Phoenix was on the importance of good photos.

So I have bought my self a new camera and once my "Film Crew" has given me some lessons on how to use it properly then my photos will improve. (Fingers crossed)

Today is a day of relaxation for us as we are going to an Art and Craft fair at Salmesbury Hall.  It's not far to travel and some of our daughters will be there.  I shall be on the look out for some  unusual gifts and then it's Sunday Roast on the way home.

  17. What a pretty, delicate card, Christina. I've never tried embossing on parchment before...guess what I'm going to do tomorrow in my craft room lol. I'm afraid that I've not been able to watch C&C for a while so missed your shows but I do know that the new Grand Caliber is a pretty teal colour :)

  24. Gorgeous card. just watched your tutorial on making A5 box and square box., Must have a go at it myself soon. I never knew how big a piece to start off with but you explained clearly. I do have the pink crafters companion box maker so may try both ways. Thank you. Diana Lawton
