Groovi Parchment Twinchie - Christmas tree plate

Hello friends,

I've got another Parchment Twinchie for you today.  I started this "Parchlet" not actually having a card in mind, then I remembered that I did need to make a 30th birthday card so ended up inserting a "30" in the gap I'd created for a sentiment.




I embossed the whole twinchie line art with the no. 2 tool, which makes the lines softer, which in turn makes the white work easier too ;)!  The sections I fully embossed, I used the no. 4 tool Groovi tool first then went over the work again with the no. 3 tool.

I used the Square Groovi plate and the Christmas tree plate - I really like the design on the Christmas tree, not just for Christmas - eh?!

The dimension on the white work is quite impressive when you look and feel it up close, which I'm very pleased about.  If I'd have wanted to spend a little more time I could have allowed my work to rest and gone over the white work once more, to make it 'whiter' but I'm happy with how this turned out by just gently embossing the areas twice in long, smooth and gentle strokes.



The Parchlet is attached to a piece of card stock the same size by one tiny staple - underneath that little punched patterned heart, you can almost see the staple on this close up picture (so I did actually stick a second punched heart on top, to hide the staple mark!).

I'm so pleased that I'm able to get back to Parchment craft, Clarity has really got me hooked again and for that, I do thank them.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Parching.
