Pergamano Thank You Cards

Published by at 4:42 pm under Dry Embossing,Parchment Craft,Thank You


Just a quick post today ladies.  I want to show you a set of six Thank You cards I made for my girlfriends. The cards are made of parchment paper using parchment techniques with Pergamano tools.

I lined the cards with pastel embossing paper, and placed matching taffeta bows on the card fronts.  I love the soft, delicate appearance of the parchment paper, it’s so beautiful! The pattern I used is from a Pergamano book entitled The Language of Flowers This is my first attempt at parchment craft and while not perfect, I’m very happy with the results and think my girlfriends will love their cards.


If you’re interested in parchment craft, please be sure to check here later in the week, I’ll be back to show you designs I’ve made from a beginners kit, as well as recommendations for a DVD that I sell illustrating the basic parchment techniques with Pergamano tools.  I’ve listed below the products I used to make these cards under the heading Shopping.


A picture of the set of cards in Apricot, Blossom, Light Yellow, Light Green, Ice Blue and Violet.

Please be sure to come back Tuesday for the JustRite Blog hop, I have some beautiful designs to show you.

    I own a papercrafting shop a bit North of you in Spring Hill-We just started getting into parchment, so far we all have been collecting tons of supplies- I have someone that is doing basic classes for us, But I would like someone that can do more advanced classes somewhere down the road-if you are interested, drop me an email.
