Gecko Galz: Dashing through the Snow

Hello everyone!

Happy December!

This is such a busy and exciting month with all the hustle and bustle of shopping and holiday preparations! I hope you'll find a little time to visit the Gecko Galz blog each day to see the Tags of December event - it starts tomorrow and one lucky blog follower will win a prize package each day!

This month at Gecko Galz our new customer challenge theme is ''Dashing Through The Snow" - another great excuse to make a few greetings cards for friends and family. 

I made a few cards. All of the printed paper products are from Gecko Galz.

Here is my first card, Snow Girl:

I used beautiful papers from the Frozen mini paper pack and inked the edges with Vintage Photo. I matted it onto kraft card. I added some gorgeous ivory lace along the bottom edge and made a short paper banner for the left side of my card onto which I attached some pearl trim.  The image is from the Czarina Digital Kit. I cut it out with a fancy oval die and used marker pens to ink up the edges. I added clear Stickles glitter to the snow on the fir trees on the image.

 I made a cluster of flowers, fibres and foliage, adding gesso to the tiny cones I collected whilst on a walk earlier this year. Some glitter snowflakes and a die cut sentiment finish off my card.

The following cards were all quick and easy to make, just matting and layering beautiful Gecko Galz papers with a lovely image and adding a little trim and a few embellies :
