Lovely crocus line-art in a previous post (here); has been used on this parchment greeting card.
- Embossing mat,
- parchment paper A4,
- colouring pencil: purple, green
- Small ball Embossing tool,
- A5 card
- Shader embossing tool
- metric ruler,
STEP 1:Score and fold parchment paper to form an A5 parchment. Place printed crocus paper on the embossing mat and then place the parchment paper on the printed paper. With the small embossing tool , trace the crocus flower.
STEP 2: place the parchment on the embossing mat ,draw a border around the crocus with the embossing ball tool and metric ruler.
Place parchment on embossing mat and with the shading tool held sideways; emboss in feather-like motion from base of each petal . Repeat from tip of petal towards the middle of each petal.
STEP 3: Emboss the leaves and stem.
STEP 4:Working on the front of parchment; Colour in the petals, leaves and stem of the crocus with a colouring pencil.
I used purple for the petals and green for the stem.
STEP 5: insert the A5 card like an insert for the parchment .
