Gecko Galz : Featured Day - November 2020

Welcome to my blog!

I have some winter inspiration today.

The theme over at  Gecko Galz is:

White Christmas for me in the Southern Hemisphere 
has more to do with white beaches and vanilla ice-cream.
 

I kept my cards in the spirit of a Northern White Christmas 
and hope you will be inspired:

Gecko Galz - White Christmas

Welcome to my blog!

A new month
A new challenge at Gecko Galz!

The theme this month is:



There is only one rule: 
you need to use at least ONE  product from Gecko Galz!!  

It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers!! 
It is up to you!!
The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree

Join the mailing list for the newsletter and receive the monthly free collage sheet.


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!
