Groovi New Home

I decided to use the latest Groovi Club plate to make a new home card but with a bit of a difference in that the parchment panel was popped behind a 'brick' layer which of course solves the problem of how to attach parchment to a card.  Glue is a bit of a no-no for parchment and I don't always want to use brads.

The design was traced to fit a certain size circle  with some hills added using another plate, then coloured using pencils.  The brick wall effect was done using an embossing folder after I'd cut out the circle from the piece of kraft card.  I also cut a frame using the same die set.  Once assembled I thought it needed a little something extra so as well as a sentiment I also added a little picket fence, a lucky black cat and a dog.  They do seem to be facing each other out but hopefully they are friends!!

House Design - Groovi Club Plate for June, hills from a basic landscape plate
Brick Panel - Embossing folder from Crafter's Companion
Colouring - Polychromos pencils
Sentiment - downloaded and resized (Netty's Cards)
Dog - X'cut mini die Docraft
Cat - dies from Impression Obsession
Picket Fence - Sizzix die

  2. Hi Val,
    as I aid to Wendy on her blog I do admire people that can do parchment craft.
    It always turns out so pretty and very delicate.
    Love theis design, and your super work.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
