Gecko Galz Tricks and Treats Blog Hop 2022

Hello Everyone!

We want to welcome everyone to the Gecko Galz 12th Annual Blog Hop.

This is our Tricks and Treats Blog Hop! 

We have 16 AMAZING blogs for you to visit this weekend, each with some gorgeous projects created using the Gecko Galz collage sheets that we are giving you for FREE on each site! Each blog you visit will have a exclusive free Gecko Galz Collage sheet for you to download, the one here is:

"Retro Hotties"
(Right click to save image, or hold CTRL and click to save image on a MacBook.)

This card box holds 6 A2-sized cards with envelopes.  See graphics below for basic box construction.  It has an angled base to allow ease of grabbing the cards/envelopes within.

If you wish to cut layering pieces for the box, you will need:
1 top  0.75"x 5.75"
2 long sides  1.75" x 5.75"
2 short sides  0.75" x 1.75"
1 front  2.75" x 5.75"
1 back  4.25" x 5.75"
2 sides  0.75" x 4" -- cut diagonally from 2.75" to the 4" corner

I only chose to embellish the front -- layering so it looked seamless from lid to base. 

For each of the ladies, I printed the entire graphic sized to 4" tall.  Then, I printed them all a second time so I could fussy-cut out the ladies themselves and add them to the background with foam squares.  I love the added dimension!

I painted gold glitter gel medium onto card panels measuring 3.75" x 5" then added the printed panels.

The sentiment stickers are gold foiled and from my stash.  I also added rhinestones to each of the cards.  The rhinestones I used are no longer available, but are very similar to these (Amazon affl).

The one above may be my favorite, but I do love them all.

Also make sure you leave a message on each blog site you visit, and follow that design team member if you do not already and on the last blog there will be a phrase that you will email to us to be entered in our drawing for a wonderful treat pack.  So sit back, relax, take your time and enjoy the hop!

First is a Gecko Galz Kit Club for 2022!
