Gecko Card


I thought this would be fun for a boy.  It would work well as a birthday card, but since the sentiment is generic it could be used for other things, like a congrats on an accomplishment.  I've left the inside blank so I can decide it's use later.

The little gecko was cut from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge on my E2 at 3.5 inches.  Quick note here, I would NOT attempt to cut it any smaller than that.  His little feet are very delicate to remove from the mat.  I added some little tiny googly eyes to him and put him up on some pop dots.

The twine is Peapod from The Twinery.

The buttons were from the Michael's $1 section.

The stamp is from Unity's Mix Up of Cuteness set.  I stamped it in Versamark and embossed using some white embossing powder.

The paper is from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly A Kite 6 by 6 pad.  

I rounded the corners on a 1/4 inch setting using my Corner Chomper.

Quick and easy!  Thanks a bunch for stopping by :)
