Many weeks ago I signed up for a weekly challenge with one of my Yahoo stamping groups.  Of course, I was supposed to send this card out the first week of December!  Yikes, poor lady has probably given up all hope!  So here’s my card finally.

Pergamano is a very old technique where you stamp with white ink and dry emboss the parchment (vellum) cardstock and use a tool to poke holes into the paper.  I believe this is a technique that I’ll feature in my April Technique, Tools and Folds camp.  Fun but a bit time consuming.  I was fairly happy with the card except the coloring of my tulips.  But after poking holes and experimenting for an hour and a half, I wasn’t going to quibble or stress about some tulips stems! I had to cross that baby off my to-do list!


  • Stamps:  Perennial Friendship
  • CS:  So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Vellum CS
  • Inks:  White Craft
  • Misc: Grosgain, and Crafter’s Tool Kit.

Here’s another Tulip card.  The inspiration for this one was from the Fall Mini Catalog.  There was a Halloween card that I liked the layout and so I drastically changed the stamps, colors and theme and came up with a nice new card.  Never never toss those minis, use them for inspiration!
