A Groove Kind of Card

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Another early blog post this morning as off to Kraftyhands for another workshop!

Many years ago I got into Parchment  and love the effect you can create with Parchment and the different tools available.

I was simply delighted when Barbara Gray brought out the Groovi Plate Make as you can create the most beautiful cards with the different plates and now she has brought out the baby one too!!!

So today's card is a monochrome parchment card! I do love the effect!

Why not check out Barbara's Clarity website to see the different plates available.
These are ideal for beginners too!

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card which I have matted and layered black card.
2. The next layer is white pearlescent card.
3. The parchment topper was created by using the following Groove plates
Square for the border, Round, Blooming Peonies and Sprig Pattern Groovi, I embossed the back with embossing tool. The pattern around the border I created with Groovi Border 1.
Around the edge I created the pattern using the grid and cut out with parchment scissors.
4. Once the topper was created I let it settle between each embossing to achieve the white work. 
5. I used brads to attach the parchment to the black card with brads.
6. The butterfly I created using the Groovi Butterfly plate, adhered to the parchment with Pergamano Glue and added black pearls down the centre.
7. To finish off I added white and black flat back pearls.
