Valentine

Good morning, it it cold here in Michigan today and we are expecting snow storms later today.   I made this card using my winnings from Gecko Galz.  The gorgeous paper is from the Gecko Galz  Neverland collection, it is called Pixie dust, the tag behind the image is from the Gecko Galz Vanity Fair paper collection, I printed both of them on to Staples matte photo paper, I really love using photo paper, it really brings out the gorgeous colors in the papers.  As you can see the same image was used for the envelope, but it is a bit faded in comparison, because it was printed on regular paper.  The main image is from the Gecko Galz January release Love me do, (I printed this one on Glossy Photo Paper) and the sweet little tickets are from Gecko Galz Bits and Pieces.  I used my  Perfect Layers Rulers to get the precise layers on my card, see my sidebar for a coupon or click on my link.
    I also wanted to share another tip with you, see the pretty red feather on her feather pen? Guess where it came from, this 15 inch feather duster I found that at Dollar Treasure for $1.00 !  Look at all those beautiful colored feathers, and they are the perfect size too!  The feathers at JoAnns and Michaels are $5.00 a bag for a smaller portion and they are much bigger and more awkward to work with, I end up cutting them to make them smaller and that feather fuzz is hard to get rid of ha ha, it sticks to everything!  These feathers are a perfect size for card making and my card is a 5 x 7.
Speaking of Gecko Galz, here is this months special.
And you know how I love paper, I am all over this one!

  8. Diane your card is beautiful. I adore that you lined the envelope with matching paper. Plucking feathers for crafting is much for fun than cleaning! Very clever of you to see the duster with different eyes. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

  9. Hi Diane, WOW is this an amazing card. The vibrant color is gorgeous and that feather is perfect for her hand and pen. I love what you can find at the Dollar Store. What did we ever do before we had them?

    As always, I love your matching envelope. Best wishes on the challenges. Of course you are always a winner with every card you create.

    Stay warm and safe in the snow storm.
    hugs, Celestina Marie
