Bird parchment card

Finally back to crafting............................I had a wonderful week last week. I was cruising to Portugal, Spain and France. My 40th birthday present off my lovely husband. I have finally washed, dried, ironed and packed everything away so I can do some crafting!!

This is my card for my DT post at movingalongwiththetimes. The theme is Birds and Feathers.

I have used my Groovi plates for the designs on my parchment using white parchment paper and rainbow parchment paper. I have used a semi circle Pergamano piercing tool  to go around the rainbow circle, In each semi circle I have embossed a white dot and then cut a picot edge with Pergamano scissors. I still need practice with this. I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir pencils. This card is for a man but something completely different to what I usually send, I hope he likes it.

I matt and layered my card with blue card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added a die cut sentiment. Then completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops
