Quick Parchment Greetings Cards
by Janet Wilson
The latest in Search Press' bestselling
Handmade Greetings Card Series, this is the book for all those of
you who love parchment craft, but aren't so keen on the time it takes
to make one card. All those hours, to produce the world's most expensive
bin liners...but no longer, thanks to Fiskars new Parchamoré system.
Buy a Mini Shapeboss Base, and then choose from a range of special
stencils to produce a lovely card in minutes.
Janet Wilson, papercraft guru
to the UK, is the able guide through this new product. I applaud
the way she has listed the essentials, and then honestly given a
list of optional extras instead of lumping them all under the one
heading. I particularly like the homemade perforating grid! After
outlining the basics, (not too many of these with this craft), it
is on with the projects, and some beautiful yet speedy cards. If
you are an expert and are thinking that all this sounds a bit basic
there are other more challenging projects to make with the same
basic templates, and some of the fancier parchment craft tools.
This does seem to be a "one size fits all" system, and you can even
combine it with photographs (no memory album pages in here as this
is a card making book) to make some special cards. As with most
Search Press books this has excellent staged diagrams explaining
every stage of the process, and fewer gallery pieces than in most
books so if it is in here, you can make it. One of the best entries
in a fine series.
