Parchment Lace

I'd sort of forgotten just how long it takes to emboss, prick out and snip a piece of parchment lace but at least by using one of the Groovi border templates there is not the 'prick 2, miss 2' way of going about it that there was in the past.  Mind you there is still a degree of concentration needed and it is pretty labour intensive.  I didn't time how long it took me but I do find it quite a mindful and relaxing thing to do, all the more so without the frustrations of the past when miscounting often came into the equation and usually when I'd nearly completed a piece.  I've popped this onto some patterned paper and added a central panel of flowers - another card without a sentiment because there didn't seem to be anywhere pleasing to place one.  Colouring was done from behind using pencils.

  1. Such a beautiful card Val, I've yet to invest in the border bars and any of the pricking tools. I feel an expense coming on.
