Surfer Dude

One of this month's Gecko Galz projects I created is this surfer card. I used Gecko Galz Beachy Keen Lowtide paper and surfer digi image, glitter glue, fibers, fabric star fish, epoxy stickers, colored pencils, chalk. Create card base from bright blue cardstock. Cut a slit in the Lowtide paper, following the edge of the image. Adhere Lowtide paper to the card being careful not to adhere the cut edge. Color the surfer image with colored pencils and chalks, slide and adhere the image beneath the cut edge of the Lowtide paper. Affix an epoxy phrase sticker to the bottom of the image. Wrap fibers around the card, threading under, over and through the fabric starfish. Affix epoxy bubble dots to the cardstock base. Apply green glitter glue to the cut edge of the Lowtide paper. A fun masculine card for that special surfer guy. My hub gets so tan and blonde in the summer that I call him my surfer dude. This card makes me think of him {grin}.

Miles of Smiles,

A fabulous card - I love how you've cut round the edge of the paper and put all the elements together.

Love the beachy colors and your fab embellies! The glitter on the paper's edge really sets it all off! Beautiful! xxD
