Better day today weather wise . I've not made a parchment card today ...shock
My card features a Tattered Lace die called succulent lantern , it was the die in issue 59 of the Tattered Lace magazine , as was the back ground paper . I cut it twice from the charisma and layered it with sticky pads . The other dies are Card Magic by Christina Griffith , part of the 5x7 card and box set.

Another day (dull and windy) , another groovi plate card. I don't know why I decided to colour in orange and green , but I like the result . I'm going to send this to my Great Aunt , who is in her 90's , for her birthday in January.
I used Tina's Henna Corners 1 A4 plate , diagonal pattern groovi boarder grid , a nested squares extension and alphabet frame A4 plate ,and a semi circle pergamano needle tool and picot cut the edges.  I backed it on a peachy coloured card and secured with button brads.

All Groovi , bed of roses and a bit of Christmas

There has been a fire at Chester Zoo today , I am a member and was going to go today with my son , we didn't because of the weather . It is very sad , the building that has burnt is fabulous , I just hope all animals , staff and visitors are fine . The latest news is all animals are safe , but it is filled with free flying birds so how they rescued them I don't know.

 More groovi cards . I'm just totally in love with parchment craft . I'm really pleased with how the lacy roses card has turned out , I will not be giving this away any time soon .
The pink card features Victoria lace plate and art nouveau bed of roses . I've coloured with promarkers , attached with six eyelets and embellished with gems. The corners are a Martha Stewart punch .

Groovi Plates Anne and Victoria lace frame patterns

These plates are a new concept for Clarity /Groovi , you can emboss and perforate on the same grid . No need to count holes . You do need to remember to do the 90 degree turn after you get half way across a row, I found out to my cost , not reading the instructions , that it doesn't work out symmetrical if you don't.

Victoria Plate

first emboss the pattern to the size you want , this one is small , you can go much bigger and also do rectangles , but don't forget to do a 90 degree turn half way along the row.
do the white work on the back , then turn to the front and do the perforating .
Then do the picot cutting . 
 This one features the Victoria frame in it's entirety, I have used part of the gladiolus plate for the centre, and coloured the back with promarkers .(all it needs now is making into a card or framing )
This picture shows the Victoria and Anne plates used in their entirety
I'm having part 2 of a root canal filling today , feels a bit sore . This has been a welcome distraction. Hope it helps someone .

Groovi Plate "The Happy Couple"

Groovi plates WEE HOUSES & SHOPS

I coloured with promarkers on the back . This is for my friend who introduced me to parchment craft , about 3 months ago , I am hooked ! I didn't think I would bother with the white work and picot cutting at first , but I love it , so much so my finger tips are somewhat parched too . I now use the pergamano tweezer type snips , so worth the price .
