Gecko Galz: Dreamy


It's my DT day at Gecko Galz and I have made 3 cards following this month's theme of Midsummer's Dream.

My cards are of simple design using background papers and focal images from the collections at Gecko Galz (links to the products I used are listed below the photos). I added matting and layers to add dimension and interest to the cards and distressed the edges of papers to give a worn appearance.

Card 1: Dreamer of Dreams

Focal Image: Midsummer Night collage set
Paper: Pixie Dust paper pack (no longer available?)
Sentiment: Charming Words
Own Stash: Lace, paper flowers, leaf die, dark blue shimmer paper, Stickles

Card 2: Midsummer Night's Dream


Focal Image: Midsummer Night collage set
Paper: Indigo Nights paper pack
Sentiment: Charming Words  (coloured altered)
Own Stash: Lace, pearl gems, light background paper, Stickles

Card 3: Fairy Toadstool

Focal Image: Midsummer Night collage set
Paper: Indigo Nights paper pack
Sentiment: Charming Words (colour altered)
Own Stash: Pearl flower trim, cream paper, Stickles, Glossy Accents for toadstool top

Here are links and thumbnails of the Gecko Galz products I used:
