May Shares for 2Crafty Chipboard - #1

 Hello everyone and welcome my Blog.  So glad you could drop by and hope you are having a wonderful day.

I am here to share the first of my May projects for 2Crafty Chipboard.
This month I have created two cards and a cover for a small Journal I am working on and, in this post, I am sharing the first of the cards.


The papers used are from Megs Garden's Forgotten Meadows Book Kit.

2Crafty Chipboard used

 Card Word Circles - Happy Birthday

 Foliage Set 1

 Decorative Rod Set 2

 Stitched Lace Border

Pretty Flowers

All the chippies were treated in the same manner.  Firstly painted with white acrylic paint and then lightly daubed or swiped with orange.

I had already used a small piece from one of the lengths of the Decorative Rod Set 2 on a previous 2Crafty project (HERE) so I simply cut out the centre section from the leftovers and inserted it between the paper layers. 

I also cut a piece from the Stitched Lace Border and inserted that between the layers at the bottom of the card.  I really love these decorative strips.  You can easily colour them to match your project and they are a great alternative to lace or ribbon.  I think they look fabulous.
You can just see one of the Pretty Flowers peeking out from underneath the cluster.

The Card Word Circles are such a great way to add your greeting.  Again, it is so easy to colour them to suit your project and adding a touch of glitter, as I have done here, makes them look really special.

As I said at the beginning, this is the first of my 2Crafty projects for May.  I will be sharing the rest over the next few days.  Hope you can come back to take a look.
In the meantime, why not pop over to the 2Crafty Blog and look at all the fabulous creations made by my Teamies.  You will love them I'm sure.  HERE is the link.

Thank you so much for visiting and do enjoy the rest of your day.

Take care and God Bless
