Hello again! I’m back with my third card that I’m sharing in the Gecko Galz Tricks & Treats Blog Hop. As mentioned, all five of my cards feature images from the very awesome Retro Cuties Collage Sheet which I’m giving away on my blog, so be sure to check out all the details in my blog post HERE and join us for the hop!


The sentiment used on the front of this card is from the Gecko Galz Charming Words Collage Set. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this card and had a great time matching the colors in the image and layering the elements. I created the card base with a very cool A2 die set and layered a piece of pretty lace paper from my scrap stash as the background. I adhered this gorgeous lady image on a piece of black glitter paper which I adhered at an angle to the background. I popped the sentiment up on some foam strips and then finished the design with some large black rhinestones and small white pearls.


I cut the inside panel with one of the stitched dies in the A2 die set and then stamped a simple birthday sentiment.


And one final look… what an amazing card this lady made! She’s gorgeous! LOVE these Gecko Galz collage sheets!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! I love reading them!
