Had a bit of a dabble with parchment, pre the 'parching' weekend at the end of November which is getting ever closer!
This card is for my Godson Alexander's first birthday. It is based on a pattern in a 2003 edition of Parchment Craft. Would of liked to emboss the writing as well, but sadly not enough time at the moment. The background piece was quite time consuming with a grid work background which was then embossed and cut out.
Some of the pages were pricked with a crescent tool then cut out, the bookmark also has cut outs in for the ribbon and the number 1 was embossed and the squares from a 4-needle tool cut out. Quite enough to be going on with!
