Groovi Nested Squares & Butterfly Wreath Plates

Hello Crafty Friends,

I was going through my pictures of cards, ones I'd made recently that hadn't actually made it to my blog yet and found this one.....


I did the Groovi work on a scrap of vellum to see if I could work out how to get three perfect small squares, at an equal distance apart, in a rectangular frame.  It was all done using the Groovi Nested Square plate and was easier than I thought.  I did end up with a large gap at the bottom, which I had planned but it seemed a little too big so I used one of the Groovi Border plates to fill in the space.  

I used accents from the Butterfly Wreath Groovi plate to fill the small squares with tiny flowers.  

Once I'd mounted my work onto the turquoise mat, using the Groovi corners punch and mounted that onto a slim piece of white card stock, it was too long for a normal size of card!  Look how I mounted it, so that I can stand it up....it's a craft coloured punching strip from Anna Marie Designs, folded in half!  Genius!  I think I'd do that again and would be happy to send it someone - maybe ;)!


Thanks for popping by, I hope you've enjoy my card today.

Happy crafting.

Hi Carole

Another great card.

I love the way you find clever ways to attach your vellum!

I had never seen a Groovi Plate system in action so watched a couple of You Tube videos by Barbara Gray .. .. very ingenious!

What do you mean .. you would be happy to send your card to someone .. maybe! Anyone would be thrilled to receive it.

Pleased that my email alert worked for you.

Hope you are having a good day.

Love Jules xx
