Gecko Galz: Holly, Jolly Christmas Cards

Hello everyone!

Today is my turn to share a couple of projects that I've made using amazing Gecko Galz papercraft products.

This month our customer challenge theme is 
''Santa Claus Lane". There are still a few days left if you would like to enter the challenge and have the chance to win a $25 shop coupon!

 We would really love to see your projects!

Here is my first card:

A simple layered card using papers 8 and 11 from Dashing Through the Snow and the stripe paper is from Here Comes Santa Claus. It doesn't show up very well, but I added glitter to each of the papers for extra sparkle and Glossy Accents to snowflake centres!  The image is one of my favourites from the Santa Claus Lane collage sheet - of course, I added extra sparkly clear glitter to Santa's frosty breath!  I added two fussy cut holly boughs, from the Christmas Dreams Kit, which I heat embossed with clear powder to make them shine, and made two poinsettias flowers to finish it off.

These two lovely ladies are from the Christmas Chic collage sheet. I added some glitter to the images and inked the edges in red. They are placed on  striped paper from the Here Comes Santa Clause paper pack and foliage paper from Botanical Christmas. The green paper was very dark, so I added some white marks using a Posca Pen, then glittered the berries. I matted the layers onto red embossed card. A red ribbon was added to the striped layer alongside the image. The sentiments were stamped.

I love the rich colours in these two cards. The paper is Red Berries from the Botanical Christmas paper pack. I added glitter to the berries and the stems. The boy image is from Merry Little Christmas and Santa is from the Christmas Dreams Kit.  I added Glossy Accents to the snow in card 1 and the berries in card 2.  I used dark green card from my stash for mats and added a satin ribbon with lace overlay for decoration.
