2Crafty March Projects #2

 Hello everyone and welcome.  So glad you stopped by for a visit.
I'm here to share the second part of my March projects for 2Crafty Chipboard.

  This is the card I created for my Grandson's 18th Birthday.  Being such a special Birthday, it had to be a special card and so I created a concertina card with some pieces from 2Crafty Chipboard's latest release.
The front of this card looks fairly busy but I just couldn't stop myself from adding all those lovely little chipboard pieces.

2Crafty Chipboard product used

Bubble Clumps
Card Word Circles - Happy Birthday

Dotty Bits
Fast Forward Arrows
Mini Tags
The papers used here are from Kaisercraft's 'Hello Today' small Paper Pad.  The small 'Bubble Clump' was coloured with acrylic paints using a dabber.  I love the mottled look you get when using this method.
  The 'Dotty Bits' tucked in the paper layers at the side were coloured the same as the Bubble Clump but the 'Mini Tag' was inked with Distress Inks and then lightly edged with gold VersaColor.  The chain is from my stash and the charms are from Megs Garden.
The 'Card Word Circle' was also painted with acrylics and the 'Fast Forward Arrow' was simply inked.   
  Love those 'Fast Forward Arrows' and used quite a few of them on the inside of the card.
This one was painted with acrylic paint ...
... as was this one.  It was also lightly inked with gold.

  The outer edge of this arrow was inked with VersaColor gold and the actual arrow itself was coloured with Black Soot Distress Ink.
 Love that crackle!!
This arrow was also inked with Distress Inks and edged with the VersaColor gold. 
The inside of the card when fully opened.  As you can see it actually holds 4 tags.

The backs of the tags can be used for photos or personal messages.  I won't show the fourth tag as that has my personal message on it.
