Groovi Parchlet Treasures

Hello Friends,

It's one of my friends birthday today and I wanted to make her a little Parchy card!  I don't normally send out my parchment cards, I save them as samples and keep them secret, as I'm still filling in for the Parchment tutor at Denman (although I really ought to by saying "winging it" for the Parchment tutor!).  I do love tutoring there and the ladies that I'm teaching seem very happy - thanks to Clarity and the Groovi system, for sure!

Since the very lovely and talented Tina Cox started a FB group called Parchlet Treasures, I seem to have taken the whole idea on board and realised that I can add just a small amount of parchment work to my cards and actually send them out to my friends and family!

So here's what I made for my friend Alex.....


....it is very similar to the card I posted yesterday, but today I cut the flowers out on my Silhouette Cameo.  I gently embossed the base flower using the flicking kind of embossing and stippled the top flower.  I thought stippling would be quicker than picot cutting, but I think I got that wrong!

Anyway, I'm really pleased how this card turned out and I hope you (and Alex) like it.

The parchment frame comes from the Groovi Border Plate Mate.  The flowers are from the Silhouette  online store and the rest is from my stash!

I hope to be back soon with some more Parchlet Treasures.

Happy crafting.
