Well here is my first attempt at a parchment card. It's not done from scratch but using the My Craft Studio Parchment Delights CD. I have problems with my hands and eyes and struggled at times and did a bit, left it for a day, went back to it etc. I did enjoy it though. A friend gave me some tips as she does parchment and even attends workshops with Pauline Loweth who appears on Ideal World and Create and Craft. I've got a long way to go but my friend and I will have a session soon to give me some more tips and a play with her tools. I have also used the My Craft Studio No Stamp Required CD for the poinsettas and have decoupaged them. I just hope the recipient likes my first attempt at parchment - or should I say my first attempt that I feel brave enough to send out of the front door to a post-box!!!!
This cards fits the criteria for the Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge of a Christmas Card. I'd not come across this challenge blog until a few days ago.
