Diorama card - Sew Special
Hello friends! I have something a little "different" to share today. It's a Diorama Card. I used the instructions in the resource section of SCS but adjusted my measurements and window sizes to fit my needs. I used this month's release from Our Daily Bread designs, "Sew Special". I also used the matching Die Cut and the ODBD Fence Die cut. Boy do these dies cut well! The little pieces of the fence just fell out... no picking them out! I think I'm getting rid of my fence punch! Anyhow... here's what I did:
I started with a base of Bazzill and cut three pieces according to my pattern. I embossed the parts that I wanted to look like siding with the Cuttlbug Distress Stripes folder. I used PinkPaisley 365* DP to create my "wall paper". I stamped the rocking chair with Memento and colored with Copics. I cut out the rocking chair with the custom die! So fast and easy! created the patio door using a Cheery Lynn Lattice die. The die itself is on the diagonal but I cut just a rectangle of squares out and sandwiched between two pieces of white card stock for rigidity, after adding a brad for a door knob. I then adhered some white trim around the door and adhered the door. I decided I wanted it to be open so you could see inside better and feel the welcome on an open door.
To decorate the front of my porch, I used an older Cuttlebug Lattice die and a Marianne corner greenery die. I used my new ODBD Fence Die to cut the fence, and I added Prima and ZVA Creative silk flowers, and some Flower Soft in Spring Mix and Shamrock Green. I created the little flower pot myself, drawing out the pot, cutting two, gluing together on the edges, sponging with distress ink and then added my flowers and adhered to the card. I decided I'd use part of one of the verses in the Sew Special set and make a little lawn sign with it.
I love creating things that are a bit different! This was a lot of fun! Almost like playing with a doll house! I hope you enjoyed it!
My sister has gone home and now I am packing for my trip! Busy, busy, busy! However, I have worked ahead and do have several things I'll be showing you during the coming days. I hope you are enjoying your summer and that it's not as fiercely hot where you are!!!
