Parchment cards

A very warm hello to all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend and that the 9 to 5 workers are getting lots of crafting done this weekend.

A project that I saw on a fellow RSA Stamper, Amanda Harrod's website, inspired me to make some boxes this week, into which I want to put 5 to 8 cards with envelopes, which can be given as gifts. I have found that people always appreciate a gift like that very much. So, I have been busy making some rather plain and quick cards too practically all week to put into these boxes. I got the pattern for the box from the Scor-Pal website and managed to make them quite easily, even though I don't have a Scor-Pal.
Inbetween making the cards and the boxes, I have been busy making some more parchment cards.

The first one is from the Pergamano World Magazine Nr. 39. Lots of cutting here but a very nice and easy pattern to do. There is another version of the pattern as well as a gift tag. I hope to do both at some or other stage. This specific magazine has some lovely wedding card patterns in it too.

The next is a pattern from a CD by Wendy Walters - Parchment Craft Pattern CD Vol 1, in the Flowers section. Both these cards are actually shown as a colored version, but as I am not so great on the coloring, I prefer to do it in plain whitework.

Well, that's all from me for this week. I hope you like what you see.

All the comments left on the previous posts is much appreciated. It really warms my heart.

Hope you will have a great first week of March. I know I have a rather busy week ahead of me.

Thanks for visiting again!
