Parchment Craft Card
Years ago I used to do parchment craft. I had very few tools, just a bunch of embossing styluses. Yesterday I tried it again for the first time in about 20 years. The design for this card came from the book Parchment Craft by Janet Wilson.
When I used to do it, I was able to get regular parchment paper, but now all I can get is vellum, so that is what I used. The dark parts in the butterflies and flowers are actually the same gold as on the borders, but for some reason it showed up dark in the photo. I started with a very simple design because it's been so many years since I've done this.
The card also doesn't look as blank as this in person. Instead, it looks classy. :-) I purposely didn't add any embellishments because in person I like the effect of just the layers of matting and borders.
