Step by Step Instructions
Step 1. Here is part 2 of the workshop where in the last step the fan was added to the tied together parchment, then the dried vintage ribbon was added to the base of the fan. The black vintage button embellishment was added over the knot of the bow to complete the bow off. So to continue to finish the base card & to make the wrap to give an elegance to the card.
Step 2. Use the teal sky PVA glue to make small faux pearl on each of the cross over sections that are visible on the parchment tied together pattern. If you are unsure when making these pearls then practise on the non stick mat until you are happy with the glue flow.
Step 3. Make each pearl the same size & allow the piece to dry.
Step 4. To bring out the detail in the flowers in the fan section, the Tim Holtz distress markers have been used. Select the broken china & the forest moss pens & shade in the floral areas on the ends of the fan blades.
Step 5. To make the parchment wrap stamp over one whole piece of parchment using the broken china ink pad & the same floral bold stamps that was used earlier. When the ink is dry emboss the whole sheet using the tied together embossing folder.
Step 6. Select a 2nd piece of parchment & measure 16cms in from the left hand side of the parchment. Then continue stamp using the broken china ink with the floral bold stamps leaving the measured space clear. Now emboss the whole sheet using the same tied together embossing folder.
Step 7. Once the 2 pieces of parchment have been laid together you`ll see you can get the pattern to match up.
Step 8. Marry the underneath design up by placing the patterned parchment overlapping the plain embossed area and just meeting the stamped floral design. The embossed area will easily just slot into place over the embossed pattern underneath. This wrap has been designed so that the plainness of the parchment underneath will help the stamped image to flow throughout.
Step 9. Add a small pencil mark where the end of the top parchment needs to go & then add some adhesive by using the sticky thumb tape runner, Just add one layer of the tape around the plain parchment areas as this will not be seen once the parchment has been added over the top.
Step 10. Add the parchment over the tape making sure the pattern lines up as you did in the lining up stage. Crease the 2 stamped flaps back up be either side of the 16cms base point. Now you will have the easily made wrap which will co-ordinate with the base fan card. Round off the corner edges using a corner punch for added detail.
Step 11. Wrap a length of the Limoges vintage ribbon around the closed up wrap & tie one bow. Now make a scrunched bow like the one made for fan card. Attach the bow to the just made bow but make sure the glue doesn`t stick the ribbon to the card as this ribbon will need to slide off sideways for the wrap to open rather than being untied. Stamp & cut out 2 or 4 flowers using the bold floral stamp & the broken china ink pad on a piece of blue card. Finish with a black vintage button embellishment.
Step 12. Here is a close up of the fan card with the raised slanted fan blades which add dimension to the piece.
Step 13. The finished project ~ the fan card complete with the matching wrap. The great thing about a design is that you can take elements of the workshop to make you own design up and maybe use a new Sue Wilson pinpoint embossing folder or use the workshop in full to recreate the project. Crafting is a great thing as you can change the colours to suit your needs.
Step 14. Just the fan card on it`s own.
There are different fan stamps in the JustRite range so please check out the Creative Expressions site to view them or if you are on the blog post then please follow this link.
Step 15. The wrap was made with lots of room to house the depth of the card, so great for decoupaged images. If you have a bigger 8” x 8” card then just adjust the blank panel measurement to suit your needs.
Here is the completed Tied Together Parchment Wrap & JustRite Fan Project.
