CD Sunday - Thank You

Good Morning everyone.  I hope all are well.
The theme for the next two weeks is my choice.  I thought it good to choose something that we all need a supply of - Thank you cards.  So as long as a CD has been used - and it is a Thank you card or project -  the subject/design can be anything you like.
Here is my card.  I really did enjoy making this one.  I went back to parchment this time and also used a new Woodware large stamp.  I stamped the image onto card and then used it to trace with white pencil onto parchment.  I then embossed and coloured and general played about - adding this and that in the way of patterns etc.

The wonderful stripey backing paper comes from one of my favourites - Carol Ann's Studios - her Glitz and Bitz CD.  The butterflies are just three of a large selection of different coloured ones I bought sometime ago. They are made from a wonderfully thick crinkly paper that is more like fabric with just a single lozenge shaped gem as the body. I chose the backing paper before I made the topper so I could match the colours using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I used a PCA Easy Embossing plate for the shape of the parchment topper which gave me some more places to colour.
As I said I enjoyed making this one and I hope you like it too.

Before I go I want to say a personal thank you to Jane and Shaz who are our Guest designers.  This is their last week with us and they have been a joy to work with - talented and prompt.  What more could we ask?  Together with Meg and Pauline they have added so much to the CD Sunday Blog over the last 6 months.

Thank you for looking.
Carol

  5. Carol, this is outstanding and soooo beautiful. I did a bit of parchment craft but didn't get too far, but this has made me think maybe I should revisit the idea. Love Suzy xx

    1. Hi Suzy. There are some new things called Easy Embossing boards and Groovi embossing plates which can make parchment easier and a bit more fun - especially for the beginner. If you want to know more use the CD Sunday email address and I will help if I can.
