Baby Girl Frock Parchment Pattern

Hello Readers !
Today I am sharing one of my old parchment project. I was newly introduced to parchment world and did this project without any guidance.
I I gifted it to my aunt who had her first baby in Jan 2004. She loved and till date it is proudly displayed at her place her in Pune, India.
Recently I asked aunt to click some photos for my blog. I really appreciate her efforts in sending me these pics (though she's not a computer literate)


Materials Used:
  • Plain white vellum paper
  • Dorso Colours
  • Dorso Oil
  • one point needle
  • Embossing Pen (small and medium size)
  • Card Stock for framing

I enlarged one of Martha Ospina's Baby frock pattern and inked it on Vellum paper. I did not have a diamond shape needle tool , so I used one point needle for the net effect in between. (I did not like the outcome, but was too late). I tried adding dorso effect to the frock, but think its bit overdone at some patches.

I Used dark green colour card stock for background and framed it between two glass sheets which added the grace to the final product.

What are the latest projects you are working on?

Happy Crafting!!


Parchment Fairies - Sesonal Greeting Cards

Dear crafters,

I sharing my 3D Parchment Flower Fairy cards. I used matching floral printed vellum paper for background in each cutouts. I embossed few important elements of the floral vellum paper to add further effect to the cards. 

The flower fairies are printed on one sheet of A4 parchment which are embossed and cut out. I use perga glue to stick the fairies on cards, so the embossing is not suppressed or damaged. 

  Thanks so much for visiting The Craft Gallery. I would be honored if you would take a moment to like our new Facebook Page "The Craft Gallery"  

Recycled Gifts - Greeting Cards

I used pencil sharpenings to make these greeting cards. I used colour pencils sharpening and painted them with sketchpens to add further effect. 

I have used calligraphy for writing messages and tried to create an insiprational series. 

What do you think about this new recycle idea??

Parchment Greeting Cards

Sharing some of my parchment cards. I used some floral designs on spare parchment scraps. I painted the flowers with parchment ink and embossed all the design.
 Then I perforated the outline and cutout the design. Made small cards with some plain card stock and attached the floral design with double sided duct tape. 

 Following two cards are made from Martha Ospina's design book. I applied some lace to give a personal touch to the candles card. 

This is perfect baby announcement card. I painted the card and did small embroidery through the four punch holes to add a personal touch. 
See the closeup pictures for further details.

Thread Painting - Greeting Cards

Today I am sharing one of my old unique cards which me and my father made in school summer holidays. I liked them so much that I have never shared it with anyone. 

Card sheet, threads (various sizes), water paints and some sketch pens 
  1. Take two same size card sheet.
  2. Take any length embroidery threads and dip threads in various inks or paints
  3. Spread the threads on one card in asymmetrical style. Press the second card on it .
  4. Pull the threads while pressing the two cards together. 
  5. This creates the symmetrical lines on both the cards.
  6. Add few details with sketch pens / sharpie to create various forms or shapes from these lines. 
I did the fun part of making imprints from the coloured threads whereas my dad did the creative part of making some shapes out of those lines. 

First one reads: Loneliness; Second one reads: Waves

Did you liked this idea? Would like to know if I can use this technique in any other share your thoughts...
