Graphic 45 & Parch Cards 059 copy

Parchment craft is an addiction and a great way to release stress and anxiety, it’s very therapeutic for me. It’s challenging, yet soothing. After I finish a design I’m  thrilled with the card and completely in awe of the ladies that create these beautiful patterns. Today I’m sharing a design that Anneke Oostmeijer created and published in her book, Anneke’s Charming Creations.

Graphic 45 & Parch Cards 050 copy

This card is made of regular parchment paper with an insert of a pastel shade of parchment called shaded purple. Multiple techniques were used in the design including tracing, painting, embossing and cutting.
