White Christmas for me in the Southern Hemisphere

Gecko Galz - White Christmas

Welcome to my blog!

A new month
A new challenge at Gecko Galz!

Here is my featured project:


It is a card I made from lightly textured cardstock

The image is from the Snow Time Fantasy Collage Sheet
The edges were lightly inked with matching inkpads (Aqua, silver)

I matted it on silver cardstock and used scissors to create the fancy edge
(yes, I still use my scissors because it is easy and fun)

Next, I created my background on the card
I fussy cut a piece of paper from the First Class Paper pack 
Unfortunately, this is discontinued, but the ATC Collection is fabulous too:
First Class ATC Collection

The paper was glued to the card.
I use liquid glue to make it easier to manipulate the image that is added.
Especially with bigger pieces and where there is room for error, 
liquid glue works better.

The edges were inked with the same colours
I added some silver on the card base for extra dimension
The image on the frame was added with dimensional tape
Finally, I cut the mirror die-cut swirl apart, 
then added it above and below the frame

I hope this has inspired you to
try something similar
and join one or all of the challenges!
