Lace White Work Card

White work is a popular form of working parchment cards, its resemblance to lace is classically elegant and timeless. Julie Roces is a master at lace work and it was with joy that I worked this design from her book, Royal LaceI find parchment incredibly relaxing and enjoy working white work designs.

Salmon Lace Card

The card consists of six layers of parchment, the inner and outer cards are made of regular parchment paper. The extra inner card is made of salmon pink parchment paper. I traced the entire pattern with white Tinta ink on both the front sheets. Embossing was completed with the extra small ball, small ball and large ball embossing tools. I used the 2-split and 4-split perforating tools to perforate the bows and edges of all layers of the card and then cut all six layers with Pergamano cutting scissors.

Salmon Lace Card 2

I included this picture of the card taken with sunlight behind it to illustrate the beautiful translucency of the parchment. I’m very proud of how well this card turned out, it was a complicated card to cut, there being six layers to cut through.

Thank you so much for your visit, until next time .   .   .

    This is exquisite. So now I know that my one and only attempt at this gorgeous craft is called white work. I made a bookmark and it turned out well so I have no idea why I haven’t tried other patterns – too much to do and too little time perhaps. Now that you are posting your gorgeous creations again, I might just be inspired to attempt it again although it will take eons to be proficient enough to do anything as intricate as you do. Have a super week.
