Technique Squad Blog Hop – Diorama Card

I’m in love with the card I created for this technique! I watched Sam Calcott’s video on Mixed Up Craft for my inspiration for the specifics of creating a diorama card and I knew I wanted to use the Grassy Grove stamps with Grove dies to create it.

  1. Start with a 4 1/8″ x 10 1/2″ piece of cardstock and score at 1/2″, 1″, 1 1/2″, 2″, & 2 1/2″ from each side. (Below is my template.)

2. After scoring and folding, I added a piece of the beautiful New Horizons DSP for the background.

3. Next I used the grove die on a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ Evening Evergreen cardstock. Using liquid glue on the very edges, I attached it to the first of the folds. Fold the edges flat to make sure it doesn’t bow. (It may anyway.)

4. Using Evening Evergreen ink, stamp the grassy mound on a 2″ x 5 3/8″ pieced of Garden Green cardstock. Use the edge die to cut the border and attach to the next fold using a little liquid glue on the edges. Fold the edges flat to make sure it doesn’t bow. (It may anyway.)

5. Add a 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Garden Green cardstock to the front flap using a little liquid glue on the edges. Using Evening Evergreen ink, stamp the flower bunch on Garden Green cardstock and die cut. Add them to the cardstock strip with a little liquid glue along the bottom of the die cut.

6. Using the third largest Stitched Rectangles die, cut out a window from a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Garden Green cardstock. Attach it to the folded edges and the bottom cardstock piece. I used Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock for the deer. The sentiment is stamped using Evening Evergreen ink on Garden Green cardstock then stamped using Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut out the label using one of the ones from the Messages die.

7. For some reason I can’t explain, I hate just having a white panel on the back of a card like this so I added a 4 1/8″ x 11″ card base.
