Parchment Card & Box

Hello and thank you for your visit!


This is a card I was going to make for a friend's Special Birthday next week..  Well I got a phone call from her hubby during the week asking if I'd make a special card for him to give to her.  I won't have time to make another parchment card now so here's John's card for Lesley's birthday.


John is going to print his own insert for the card so I left the front free of a name or sentiment.


I decided to make a box to put the card in.


For the box I used two stencils in two different Distress inks in blue and a blush of pink, my old French script stamp and a couple of dies.  The flower is by Sue Wilson.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

  12. WOW!! this card is so beautiful Barb. I love the look of parchment cards although I've never made one. I don't think my eyesight is quite good enough and I am a bit clumsy as well. Your friend is really going to love this and the lovely presentation box.
