* Gecko Galz: Love


Today is my feature day for Gecko Galz.
At the Gecko Galz blog our January Customer Challenge is in full swing and the theme is Love Stories. We would love for you to play along. All that you need to do is create a project using just one Gecko Galz product (there are lots of free digi stamps on the blog).

Here is a card that I made:

I used an image from the True Loves Kiss collage sheet and die cut it with a pierced circle. I added it on top of a fancy circle die cut and used it as a topper. The paper is from my stash and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo. I made some paper flowers by die cutting some of the patterned paper. Again I inked the edges to give them a little more definition and I added some tiny flat back pearls to the flower centres. I also die cut some foliage to go with the flowers. I heat embossed a small wooden heart and the word love with some white sparkle powder.
I think this card would be good as a Valentine's card or as an anniversary or engagement card. There are lots of lovely vintage images on the collage sheet and you can find it by clicking on the link below:

True Loves Kiss

My customer challenge inspiration project below, using another image from True Loves Kiss, was posted on the 1st January and you can see it here. The pink papers I used are from the Heart to Heart Mini Paper Pack.
