Chubby Little Winter Birds

Hi All, here's another card I made for the Gecko Galz DT using the Winters Garden set for both the image and paper.  I love it when we get a paper image included in the collage sheet set!
Here are the products I used.   Gecko Galz Winters Garden collage set, Starburst jewels from
Pizzazz Aplenty and dimensional foam.
Directions: I printed the blue leaf background on matte matte photo paper and glued it to my 5 x 7 card base.  Then I printed the bird image twice, fussy cut just the birds from 1 image and used the dimensional foam to pop them up, I also glued the birds down on the left side only.  I mounted the bird image to a piece of black card stock, I used my
Perfect Layers Rulers to trim a 3/16th border, then mounted that to the leaf paper.  I glued the 3 acrylic sunburst gems on to the side.  For the envelope liner, I printed the image on regular copy paper 4x6, cut the outside edge with fancy scissors and glued the top into the inside of the envelope.

And don't forget this month at Gecko Galz we are having our bi-Annual buy one get one sale.  Buy any product and get a second of equal or lesser value FREE! Just place your order as usual then send an email to us at with a list of your free products. Now is the perfect time to stock up!
Well, that's it for today, thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  1. Absolutely gorgeous Diane. I love anything from nature and you have popped those weaver birds beautifully with the foam tape. The blue is a wonderful backdrop and makes the image stand out beautifully. And as always the matching envelope is the cherry on the top.
