Retro Chic

Hi everyone! I’m baaaaack, this time with my fourth card that I’m sharing in the Gecko Galz Tricks & Treats Blog Hop. 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!


I created an Impossible Card! Anybody who knows me knows that I absolutely love fun folds, and when I found this one, I went hog-wild and created several! So stay tuned for future posts featuring this amazing fold! I rounded all the corners on this one which yields a very cool look, and there are tons of flat layers. This saucy lady is layered on cardstock, white glitter paper, patterned paper and more cardstock. The stamp on the bottom band is from the Gecko Galz Bits & Pieces Digital Collage Set which I popped up on some foam. I cut several flags from cardstock and paper scraps, and adhered them under and out to the right of the stamp. I embellished the centers of all the flowers on the patterned paper with a shimmery Gelly Roll pen.


And one final look at this super cool card folded flat and ready to mail. The image folds forward to slide into the envelope and then when it is taken out of the envelope, it stands up by itself (see first photo above). Whoever created this fold is a genius, lol!

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
