January Challenge: Gecko Galz "All that Glitters"

Happy New Year Friends. I hope that your holidays were wonderful and that you are looking forward to 2016 with an optimistic view. The holidays were busy around here as well. It's always busy when the children are home from school, my husband is home from work and everyone we know seems to pop over to say hello. Its a wonderful time of year that reminds me of our many blessings.

Between Skylander quests and origami overseeing, I had a chance to get a tiny bit of creative work done.

I created this beautiful card using the new High Society paper from Gecko Galz. The exact paper is HS09. I also used the beautiful image from the Pretty Portraits 2 Collage sheet.


You will need:



  1. 5x7 card base or cardstock to create one
  2. Red cardstock of your choice (I used Bazzil)
  3. Glitter glue
  4. floral spray (I found mine at the dollar tree in with the Christmas decorations and chopped it up)
  5. rolled roses 
  6. handmade hat pins

Making the Card:


  1. Cut your red cardstock to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 to create the large mat
  2. Cut the High Society paper to 4 1/2 x 6 1/2
  3. Cut red cardstock to 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 to create small mat
  4. Cut image to 3 1/2 x 2 1/2
  5. Create two rolled roses. I used the CTMH Artiste Cartridge and then inked them using Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in scarlet and cranberry.
  6. Adhere large red mat to base.
  7. Adhere design paper.
  8. Arrange flower spray and paper roses and adhere to card.
  9. Adhere focal image to small mat and attach to card using foam squares.
  10. Insert hat pins under the edge of image or spray and adhere.
  11. Using a fine tip glitter glue, trace the flourishes on the design paper.
  12. Allow to dry completely.


Enjoy!
