Do you remember making diorama projects in school? This diorama card will take you no time to create and it folds flat so you can mail it. Having dies to cut the pieces is much easier than working in a shoebox getting glue all over.
Bright colors are always my go-to colors so I decided to use Discount Indigo cardstock and Discount Light Yellow cardstock. Using the dies I cut one solid Indigo panel for the back. Cut two more panels with the aperture dies in place using blue and yellow. Then, the lace panel was cut using yellow. CutCardStock is a dream to use with dimensional projects because it is very sturdy.
The first thing to do after all the panels are cut is to score the side tabs. This die comes with side panels that have two slits in place so the side tabs slip right through. But, I added glue to the tabs to be sure they stay in place.
For embellishments, I decided on a premade sentiment and then used dies to cut out a little floral arrangement for the outside front. Coordinating the cardstock with the colors in the premade sentiment I used Stardream Metallic Fairway, Stardream Metallic Punch, Stardream Metallic Ruby, and Stardream Metallic Pluto. I cut one of each die with the exception of the larger floral die which I cut two pieces. I assembled the flower using a brad to hold the pieces together and then glue to secure it all together.
Building The Diorama Card
Assembling the diorama went very smoothly. Since I already had the sides attached to the back panel I started by adding the yellow panel next and then the blue panel once the lace panel was glued to it. The last thing added was the floral embellishment to the front of the card.
One of the great things about this card is that the recipient can display it if they would like to because it stands upright on a flat surface. There are so many different types of cards you can send using this diorama idea just by switching out the sentiment and embellishments.
