PRETTY COQUETTE CARD

Gecko Galz Products Used:

February Kit Club items used:
Pink Rose Frame COQ110 from the Coquette Icons
Cute Little Coquettes Collage Sheet
Coquette Icons 2 Pink lady COQ125 and Fan COQ116
Parisian Dreams Paper Pack PD01 and PD12

From the new February collage sheets:
Vintage Tags Collage Sheet

From the January Kit:
Love Potion #9 Icons - Love Ticket


Instructions:

Begin with a black card base.  Print out two background papers from the Parisian Dreams paper pack. Attach one of the backgrounds to the base covering only the top two thirds of your card base.  Create a pocket by either cutting or tearing a different background and attaching to the bottom part of your card base attaching by the edges only using score tape or ATG tape.  Be sure to cut or tear this piece at an angle so you have a sizable area on the right hand side of the card to support your main image when you attach attach it later.

Print out the Cute Little Coquettes collage sheet and cut out the image of your choice.

Print out and fussy cut the pink rose frame from the Coquette Icons.  Fussy cut around the flowers and leaves at the top right so that you can tuck and attach your coquette image under the roses.

Using pop dots, attach this frame to the card,  making sure not to attach the upper left portion of the frame so that it doesn't interfere with your tag pocket.

Cut out the pink lady from the Coquette Icons 2 and attach her with pop dots, again making sure not to close up your pocket.

Cut out the fan and attach with pop dots at the bottom right corner.

I then added a piece of music note patterned washi tape to the bottom of the card to coordinate with the music note tag, but this is optional.

Attach the love ticket from the Gecko Galz January Kit Love Potion #9 Icons, or other sentiment of your choice.

Print out the collage sheet Vintage Tags.  I used the one with the music notes as it has a blank white area in the center on which to write a private little note before tucking it into the pocket.  

Tuck the tag into the pocket.

 We asked Nancy

WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU LOVE TO WORK WITH 

(besides Gecko Galz) AND IN A FEW WORDS HOW

 WOULD YOU SUM UP YOUR STYLE"

My favorite products to use in addition to digital images would be any of my intricate dies to add interest and texture to my creations.
I would sum up my style as eclectic.  I don't like to box myself into any particular style.  I'll try anything once!
