Scene Box Tutorial...

Happy Wednesday,

Im sorry its taken longer than I planned but the Scene Box tutorial should be live today  I have added the link below and this should show you the easiest way to put the Scene Box together.  Todays card is the one made on the tutorial with a simple front and all the interest being inside!

If you'd like to see how the box was made watch the tutorial.  I will be filming a video for the inside of the box later in the week but for now its relatively simple.  I embossed the Snowdrops embossing folder by crafts too using izink pigment ink in Sky blue and Aqua using the letterpress technique.

Next I cut the three main dies in the Snow Scenes die set onto white pearl card.  I trimmed these down and painted glue onto the tops of the seven and the main area before adding Crafts Too chunky clear glitter.  I then used foam tape to add the highest hill to the background adding the next 2 layers, with more foam tape, lower down to build the scene.

  1. Morning John, thank you so much for this creation and the video, I know lot's of people will now be able to refer back to it, as you say once you have done one then the rest is history.

    I received my big order of your collection yesterday and oh my word it really is amazing and I am loving the new packaging, brilliant, why don't others do this it is so much easier to store.

    Off to my craft group this morning so will have a play.xx

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  2. Good morning John Beautiful Christmas card the snow scene is amazing Thankyou for the video

  3. Thank you for the video John. The card is lovely. Received all of your collection yesterday. Absolutely fabulous. Well done you in the packaging. So much easier to use now. Better than that sticky tape where you end up cutting your hands and nearly losing a fingernail. Better for the world also.
