Making Cards

I've been spending a lot of time in my studio lately making cards for friends.
I backed the die cut on the front of this card with iridescent glitter paper, and used that same paper for the snowflakes.  The camera didn't do a very good job of picking up the sparkle.
The die cut on this one has the same paper backing, but I inlaid the snowflakes with silver mirror board.
I used the iridescent glitter paper for the die cut frame on this card,
and made my own embossing powder by mixing Ranger Super Fine Detail White embossing powder and Diamond Dust fine glitter from Stampin' Up.  To get the camera to pick up even a bit of the shimmer, I had to shoot slightly out of focus.
I used the same embossing powder mix for the trees and sentiment on this card and die cut the frame from silver mirror board.
The interior uses the same embossing powder mix plus Ranger Super Fine Detail Silver embossing powder.
For the frame on this one, I used the iridescent glitter paper and my embossing powder mix for the tree and sentiment, but the sparkle didn't show up at all, even when I adjusted the focus. 
I just stamped the snowflakes with white pigment ink and used the silver embossing powder for the sentiment on the inside of the card.

I'm going to have to dig out some of my photography lights and see if I get better photo results with more controlled lighting...I'm loving making cards, though.  I'm still very new to it, so I make lots of mistakes.  But, even with all the mistakes, it's so much fun and so relaxing!
