Tutorial - Diorama Card

Hello all you beautiful folks..

I hope everyone has been having fun with the alll the holidays lined up. I for one am going nuts, because i have an extremely active 3 year old (who loves school!) sitting at home for four long days!!

This month at Lulupu we have the challenge #15 Weather or not.. And right now in Hyderabad it rains on and off but mostly pleasant.. This lets me take my daughter to the park and she absolutely looooves the swings! Wants to swing higher and higher.. my card represents just that happiness :) its a Diorama card or like a scene within a scene :)

A play ground.. :) for me, that signifies pure innocence :) it is such a joy to watch children play with unabashed laughter, smiles and fun!

I've used distress inks to create the background within. Some clouds, butterflies, birds, technique tuesday stamps, to complete the diorama portion of my card (pssst - technique tuesday coming to lulupu sooooon!!)

 The tree represents autumn :) Its a die cut that ive misted with my home made mists :)

Like i said, happiness is what i connect with a playground and the little girls swinging and laughing, the fluttering butterflies, the puffy clouds - all HAPPY! The sentiment is again die cut.. I have also added some stickles onto the birds and butterflies :)

I had seen this card a while back and this is the tutorial based on the way i've made it :)

Supplies needed-

One 8 1/2" x 11" card stock
Bone folder/scoring board
Dies/scissors - i didnt have a big frame so i used the biggest die i had and then hand cut around it :)

Step 1
Cut the cardstock at 5 1/2" leaving you with 2 pieces of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Step 2
Score one of the pieces at 41/4" - Card panel
Trim the other piece to 4 3/4" x 5 1/2" - window panel
You will have these pieces -

Step 3
Score the window panel at 1/8" on either side. Adhere your die to the centre of the panel and run it through your machine. You'll get a window cut.

Step 4
These are your two panels ready. Decorate as desired first and then adhere the window to the base :)

Hope you have enjoyed this.. see you at #15! :)
