I really love making parchment cards with just white work and a touch of gold so when cleaning out my craft room, I found this pattern in one of my old magazines and knew that I just had to make it.
I also wanted to make something that I could take on the plane for the short trip that I was making to Switzerland for a couple of days and that I could do at night in the hotel.
I made the topper first. I traced the pattern with white tinta ink and used gold tinta ink on the ribbon edges. I then embossed the flower, ribbon and edges and then using a two hole tool, went around the outside edge and perforated, and then cut the oval topper out.
With black card, I cut out the background using Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals One. I then mounted the topper onto this using small gold brads. I then cut out an oval in black card using Spellbinders Grand Ovals and attached this to the back of the topper to hide the back of the brads. I then mounted the topper onto a easel card I made with Grand Ovals and cut a smaller oval in white to mount my greeting and stopper onto.
The greeting was from Party Paws - Bamboo Rubber Stamp Set by Crafter's Companion which I felt worked well with the topper.
