* Gecko Galz: Snow Queen

I am still having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!


It's December and the theme for the Gecko Galz customer challenge is Snow Queen.

Also, starting tomorrow on the Gecko Galz blog is the 24 days of Deck The Halls, where each day there will be inspiration and ideas for home decorations - I hope you'll take a look!

Here is what I made for the Snow Queen inspiration:

 A Snow Queen Shaker Card.

The image is from the Snow Queens Collage sheet. It was resized, printed, then fussy cut. I inked the edges in Vintage Photo ink and added Diamond Stickles to the Snow Queen's headdress and skirt. The background is made from Snowflake paper from the Winter Wonderland paper pack. I printed it out to 6 x 6 inches, then added the shaker element from white embossed card and Snowflake paper. Inside the shaker, I added some die cut snow mounds and fir trees from white glitter card. The shaker element is Snow Crystal Glitter.  A die cut snowflake banner was attached to the top the shaker window. The sentiment is from my stash and was mounted onto silver glitter card.

Snow Queen Tag


My tag features a Snow Queen from the From Russia With Love collage sheet. She's been fussy cut along with her deer and some Diamond Stickles applied to her head-dress and coat. The background of the tag is Snowflake paper from the Winter Wonderland paper pack. I added some die cut snow mounds, some sparkly trim and some teal and white glitter card fir trees edged with Vintage Photo ink. A silver snowflake banner was added across one of the corners and the words Joy, Love and Peace from a sentiment in the Christmas Sayings stamp set were inked and attached. Silver ric rac trim and teal organza ribbon were threaded through the tag top.

That's all from me for now!
