A Wee Bit of Parchment Christmas 2011

Goodness, here it is September already!!  I've made several Christmas cards for family and friends and they are tucked away in their hiding place so no one can see them til the time rolls around when they are supposed to be seen, but these  are a few "extras" I've recently made for 'just in case' situations :))  Nothing fancy, mind you....they are "just in case"!!

The first five cards are made using my own technique as explained in my book titled, "Parchment Craft Etched Glass Technique".  You may also click on the cover of the book located on your left in the side bar for more information.  This technique does require the use of either Paint Shop Pro 8 (or any version there after)  OR  Adobe Photo Shop to create the images on the first five cards.

The last card is traditional white work and is a beautiful, abstract flourish, tree decoration also created in the photo editing program I use when I create my ©Parchment Craft Etched Glass Technique.

I'll be making up a few more "just in case" Christmas cards through Sept. in hopes of inspiring all the procrastinators out there to get busy so you're not a total wreck come December!!!

Happy Parching,
