2Crafty December Shares #2

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  Hope you are having a fantastic day and thank you so much for visiting at this busy time of the year.
Not long to New Year now!!!   Woo!! Hoo!!
The second of my 2Crafty December projects is a soft and feminine card.
2Crafty Chipboard used
ATC Birdcage
Card Word Circles - Sentiment

Both chipboard pieces were treated in the same manner.  Firstly coloured with VersaColor Umber and then coated with Glossy Accents.  One of the reasons I love working with this chipboard is, you don't have to go to great lengths to make it look fantastic.  You can either just leave it raw or use very simple techniques to add the colour you need.

These Card Word Circles are simply fabulous, they are the perfect size for any card and you get a selection of 6 different greetings in each pack.

The Birdcage comes in a pack of two and you get two little birds with it as well although I didn't use them here.  
That stunning bloom is available from Megs Garden as is the mesh ribbon underneath my embellies.  I also added some small beads to the cluster  along with some lengths of twine.

A view of the inside ... just waiting for the sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed this post and that I have inspired you a little.  Tomorrow I will be posting the last of my December Shares.  Hope to see you back here then.  In the meantime, why not go over and take a look at all the wonderful projects created by my Teamies HERE

I would love to see you join Tims 12 tags, they are so much fun and you don't need the Compendium as he shares the step by step with you. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. All the best for 2015.
