Gecko Galz: Vintage Winter Skaters and Snowballing Shaker Tag



The December customer challenge at Gecko Galz is Once Upon a Christmas. To me this conjures up images of Christmases gone by, so anything old fashioned or vintage is good for this challenge. You can check out the awesome creations made by all the DT on the Gecko Galz blog
We would love for you to join the challenge using  just one or more products from the Gecko Galz Etsy shop.

Here is what I made:

The skaters are from the Baby It's Cold Outside collage set - aren't they lovely! I teamed them with some sparkly teal card from my stash and the lovely Snowflake paper from Winter Wonderland. I added some white  lace and a die cut white poinsettia which i inked lightly along the edges in teal. I used alcohol inks to dye the small rock stones in the centre of the flower. Teal and glitter foliage was also cut along with the sentiment.

My next project is a shaker tag. 

 For this I used one of the icons from the Snow Much Fun Digital Kit. I printed the image out, cut the window away and added acetate . I built the sides with mount board and used paper Winter Wonderland paper as the background. I added mica flakes to the shaker element and finished with red ribbon.

 My final project was made for the customer challenge Inspiration post. If interested you can see the details here.

That's all for now!
