Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Really plodding along with those Christmas scene cards, and I have just one left to make for my large Christmas order.
The one I have left to make is for her husband.

So onto yet another Christmas scene card made from the die cuts I bought on ebay.

This is a 5"x7"  size tent card.
This card was extremely difficult to get a nice photo of. 
Just kept coming out really dark.
The side view looks a little lighter.
I cut a snippet of grey card to the size I wanted, and then I sprayed it with spray glue, and put Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow glitter all over it to back my scene on.
The ribbon is a TL one and is a grey with silver glitter running through it.

Thank you  so much for your visit, and your precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I always manage to make a scene at Christmas, it is usually when something has gone wrong with the
Christmas Dinner.
This is another beauty Jenny, fabulous die and love the white with the silver glitter card.
I have recently made a card with lots of glitter on and I had a heck of a job with the photo, I will be telling this when I post the card on my blog but giving you the chance to try it before hand, see if it works for you.
I took load of photo's and all were rubbish, then when it came dark, as it does so early now, I decided to take the photo in the dark, didn't think it would work but it did, a near as dam it perfect photo.

Beautiful card, jenny. I too have trouble taking photos of cards with lots of glitter or glitter paper. Truth is, i have trouble taking photos! My last couple of card posts were so blurred and out of focus!

I am going to try Kath's suggestion...
Your card die is fabulous and I really like it with the glitter paper underneath. The two banners with the snowflakes at the top of each are perfect here.

Cara said...

Isn't it a pain when you can't get a good photo! That said, your card looks fabulous!

Hi Jenny
This is gorgeous. What a lovely die cut.
Never think of getting die cuts from ebay but I suppose this die would be very expensive by the look of it and so it would be a good way of getting to "use"it.
Best wishes.
