March Customer Challenge Entry For Gecko Galz

Hello Crafty Friends!  I know it's really cold outside for many of you, but take a moment to think Spring for the current Gecko Galz challenge, "In The Garden" featured on the Gecko Galz blog throughout the month of March.

There is only one rule.  You need to use at least ONE  product from Gecko Galz.
It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers.  It is up to you. The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree!

Here is my entry, with a step-by-step instructional below.

step by step:

Print image from the Gecko Galz Beautiful Words 1 Collage Sheet, and double mat with pale yellow followed by white.
Cut another mat in black using Tim Holtz Core'dinations or other distressable or sand-able paper.
Dry emboss the black mat with a script embossing folder.
Sand the paper to reveal the script pattern which will turn white.
Mat again in patterned yellow using the Gecko Galz Pixie Dust Papers.
Mat again in the Tim Holtz black sand-able paper and sand lightly to add extra texture to the card.
Attach all to a black cardstock base
Print and cut out sentiment from Beautiful Words 1 collage sheet and mat with black cardstock.  Attach with black brads.  Adhere with dimensional foam tape.  Add a bow of ribbon in a bold graphic pattern.


  1. Wonderful card Nancy! The sanding technique looks great! Love this!

  2. Oh I just love this, Nancy! The color palette and fabulous texture is amazing and I'm swooning over that bow! xxD
