parchment cards

I have been doing lots of parching over the last few weeks, I am finding it very enjoyable. I still haven't got most of the tools but I have been improvising and making do. The hardest thing is matching a colour for the back of the parchment as it changes the look of the colours. Here area the cards that I have made so far. I have tried to make each one a little bit different so that I am learning new ideas all the time.
This was the first card that I made for my Mum's Birthday

The open book card was an idea I had after seeing some fantastic examples on the internet. I was pleased with my attempt but they are not in the same league as some of the others.

 This card was placed on a blue background
 

 This is may second attempt, I have made the pages more fancy around the edges, added a darker colour for the background and a different braid. I have made three of these all for my friends and family.




 This one was made by just embossing the parchment

This card is one of my favourites, I like how delicate and feminine it looks

  2. A great collection of beautiful cards. I have never seen open book cards before and they are WOW! My absolsute favourite, though, is the last one, yes, it is really feminine and elegant.
    Well done, Susan!
