Groovi - Meadow Grases & Occasions Border plates

Hello Craft Friends,

I'm sharing a card that is a little bit more masculine with you today. I've attached the vellum in quite a different kind of way than usual, to the base card for this one.....



....I used a whole piece of A5 vellum (Clarity) for the parchment work, which I wrapped completely around the card stock.  I attached it using my Tim Holtz tiny attacher, stapling the little stripped blue flag onto the card, which secured the vellum on the top left.  I hid the staple with the little red heart.   I then needed to secure the bottom part of the vellum towards the right side, so I searched my crafty stash and found the little dragonfly brad - I've had that brad for years and now I wish I could get some more!

It was more by luck than judgement that the "with love & best wishes" fitted perfectly ;)!

I finished off the card with some Stampin' Up Linen Thread which I left loosely with just a knot.

I hope I've inspired you to get out your Groovi stash and get into the Groove :)!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

Hi Carole

I hope you are well and have been having a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Your card is gorgeous. Love the blue background behind the vellum and of course the little heart embellishment.

There are lots of little dragonflies here if it helps
