Parchment Peach Card

I had a chance to play this past weekend and made this sweet parchment card in tones of peach and salmon pink (my wedding colors). The beautiful design is from Mieke Springer’s book, Parchment Craft, My lifeIsn’t it absolutely gorgeous! This card was on my “must do” list and I’m so glad I made it. It’s perfect to use for a birthday, Mother’s Day, wedding, thinking of you and sympathy. I’ll inscribe a sentiment in the center when I get ready to send it out.

Cutting these little crosses in the parchment paper with Parchment scissors  is easy to do and the results are so beautiful. I used the fine mesh grid and a Pergamano perforating mat to perforate the areas between the scrolls using the arrow tool, as well as the one-needle perforating tool. The scrolls were traced with a mapping pen using Tinta Gold ink. The flowers were traced with Tinta Pastel Pink and the leaves were traced and painted with Tinta Leaf Green. Perga Colors Exclusive markers were used together with the Perga No. 2 paint brush to paint the flowers and leaves. Pintura paints (yellow ochre, brown and white) were used in the flowers’ hearts.

After I traced and painted the flowers on a separate sheet of parchment paper, I used the two-needle perforating tool to perforate around the edges. I used the parchment scissors to cut the flowers forming the picot edge. They are adhered to the card with PergaKit 3-D Adhesive, a silicone adhesive made by Pergamano especially for 3-D techniques.  I used the fine stylus, extra fine ball, small ball and large ball for all embossing on the design. A piece of salmon pink parchment paper was placed inside the card. I used the two needle tool to perforate the areas within the scrolls and around the inner and outer card (through four layers of parchment paper). I then cut the areas within the scrolls and around the inner and outer cards.

I placed the card in front of the window to show you the beautify of the light shining through the parchment. I love showing you photos of the soft luminosity of parchment paper. It’s very beautiful and unlike any paper I’ve used. The sheer delicate beauty is what attracted me to parchment craft. Help me, Lord, to see  your beauty all around me.  May my gratitude spill over from a cup full of thanks to you.  –Women’s Devotional Bible — NIV.
