Diorama Cards

Diorama Cards

Hi All,
Just swinging by with what I have been playing with this week. 

So what is Diorama- it is simply put "a model representing a scene with three-dimensional figures, in miniature or as a large-scale exhibit".

With some new dies in the market especially the Lawns Fawn dies for the music band and the sea creatures to be used with their box dies I was fascinated by the beautiful scenes these dies create. 

I was not too happy with the size though .. wanted bigger larger and with no restrictions....... and my buzzing mind would not let me stop.

I did get a bit carried away as I decided to scale it up. All my dies were pulled out and I got really excited with the possibilities.

The first one I made was using the Bielo paper from the craft shop. It cuts beautifully with my dies and is a pure white that was perfect.

I followed this up with a card for a dancer in my family using Bob n Bettys 'Disco Station '.

These cards are really easy to make.
You will need two pieces of card stock measuring 7x4 inches. Scored at 1/2' and 4" on the 7 ' side and two pieces measuring 5x4" , scored at 1/2" and 4 " on the 5 " side.

Select a set of 3 nestable dies like the ones below or even a standard circle or rectangle will work.

Use the biggest die to cut a window out of one of the 7x4 " pieces . If you are using cardstock use the piece that you would want in front of your card . Cut out similar windows on the two inserts using the staggered dies. It will help if you can mark the inserts using the cut window as a guide.

Once all the pieces are cut out attach the two large pieces to form a box.  Using wet glue insert the other two pieces well spaced out. Please ensure the windows match up .
This is your basic platform. 
You can now build your scenes using any die cuts .
I built three ....... oh may be four. These are so addictive. Try them out.

I also cut out a few with my electronic machines using SVG files.

Try them out and let me know if got addicted too.
These fold flat  to go into a 5.5 x 7.5 envelope.

See you again soon.
