Camellia Thank You Notecard

Hi friends, I’m back with a beautiful little notecard I’ve recently completed that I want to share with you.

I used a mix of parchment paper and regular card stock with this creation. The camellia flower is a pattern by Dorothy Holness that was published in July of 2008 in Parchment Craft Magazine. There are two other flowers that I’m currently working on to complete a trio of Thank You notecards.

I painted the leaves and stamens onto the parchment paper with Tombow markers. Once completely dry, I embossed the flower and the leaves using Pergamano embossing tools. The border of the parchment paper was perforated with a 4-Needle perforating tool and embossed with a star embossing tool.

I layered the parchment paper onto olive green and brown card stock layers and then attached the panel to cream card stock folded into a small card. The edges of the card stock layers were painted with a Krylon 18Kt. Gold pen. Small gold pearls were adhered to the four corners of the parchment with PergaGlue.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I so appreciate your visits. I’ll be back soon with the other two notecards to the trio.
