I always love seeing what my buddies come up with, and each of them created a slightly different but equally adorable project! I love you guys so much! (Lauren, you and your ADORABLE project are sadly missing - the picture turned out totally blurry. Next time I will check more closely!)
We had so much fun making this card that I would like to share the directions here. Of course, the decorations can be altered, but we had fun playing with the coordinating paper and stamping our images with Stampin' Write markers for a fun, artistic look.
Directions to Create a Diorama Card
Overall Dimensions: 4 ¼ x 5 ½ (Standard Size Card)
Medium Horizontal Diorama
Cut one piece of Designer Series Paper and one piece of card stock for the front and back layers to 4 ¼ x 7 ½. Score 1” from each edge on the 7 ½” side.
Cut one piece of card stock to 4 ¼ x 6 ½ to create the middle layer. Score ½” from each edge on the 6 ½” side.
Cut one piece of Whisper White card stock to 4 ¼ x 5 ½. This will create a liner for the inside back of the card for stamping.
Die cut your largest opening in the front layer. Die cut a slightly smaller opening on the inside layer. (Jessica will show you a trick for lining up your windows perfectly!)
Stamp the inside layer and decorate before assembly.
Deep Vertical Diorama
Cut 2 pieces for the front and back layers to 5 ½ x 7 ¼.
Score 1 ½” from edges on the 7 ¼” side.
Cut 1 inside piece to 5 ¾ x 5 ½. Score ¾” from the edges on the 5 ¾” side.
Die cut openings and decorate as before.
Small Two Layer Horizontal Diorama
Cut one piece of Designer Series Paper and one piece of card stock to 4 ¼ x 6½. Score both pieces ½” and 1” from each edge on the 6 ½” side.
