Gecko Galz March Samples

Oh I had much fun working on this months samples. the collage sheets I used were my favorite picks....pretty Birds. A subject close to my heart since y last name is Bird !!!! My 1st three cards are lil 3x3 gift cards. Pretty simple but cute lil cards. I inked everything in brown ink.

My next card is one of my favorite card designs.... a easel card. Again, I inked everything with brown ink. The print paper is from my scrap draw and the image is matted with the same color as my card base. I printed out Happy Birthday to you on my printer and popped it up. This makes the card front stay up.  

My last set of cards are alittle different, I used a single 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cream color cardstock and the colored piece opens to put you sentiment or you message and signature.  Again I ink everything in brown ink and the images are matted in a print that matches the colors you use on the top folded piece.

This is the die from spellbinders I used - it just gets folded in half.

Love all of your card samples, Barbara. The little bird gift cards are adorable and the easel card is a gorgeous design. The cards with the Spellbinders die are so very different and such a great design - I may have to copy this idea :) x
