Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Parchment Front ...

 Hi Everybody,

Elements from three sets of dies have been used to produce this pretty card.

But the focal point to it has been cut from Parchment.

I have used Parchment Paper from AnnaMarie Designs  and it is a really good quality.

I added it to the A4 embossing folder Ornate Butterflies from Crafters Companion  

Once the base card was created with layers of white and lilac I cut the parchment in half, and cut the shaped panel for the front.
I used the other half and cut out just two of the butterflies and then decoupaged them onto the main panel

The verse is stamped and heat embossed in silver and add to Labels Thirty Three.

The butterfly has a pearly body and trail cut from "Bling" from Want2Scrap

A really pretty and easy to produce card

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. This is a beautiful card I love the butterfly background in parchment
    You come up with some great ideas Thanks for sharing them

  2. Good morning Christina
    What a really beautiful card so delicate looking just one question, how did you attach the vellum to the card what did you use that does not show through? I have tried all manner of things but never perfect.
    Thank you for all your wonderful inspiration.

  3. Morning Christina,
    Beautiful card, love the use of parchment.

  4. Hi Christina just found your blog and have had a good look back wow you make such beautiful cards with so many different dies.I have been looking to buy an A$ die machine and so it was interest that I saw you got a just-cutz back in September and wondered if all the beautiful cards you have made were die cut using that machine and how easy you have found it to use and have you had any problems. I did see that you recommended the steel plate being purchased to aid in cutting fine detail dies but would love an update on how the machine is performing please.

  5. love parchment and you have done a lovely job with this card
