Creatables Diorama Card



I made this card from a tutorial by Angie Crockett on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. At first, I was going to use a few of my ODBD stamps, but the ones I chose didn't really match up with the size.

Anyway, after trying to plan around stamps, I decided it would be easier just to use some plain paper and a DP for the outside with some Marianne Creatables inside on my first card like this.

I chose a generic dark blue CS, a piece of very old Hot Off the Press paper to cover the front and sides, and Core'dinations Pearl for all the die cuts.

I placed the Creatables villages on the back wall, the sleigh and reindeer on the second layer, and the tree and poinsettia on the front of the card. The frame was cut with a Spellbinders die.

This diorama is two inches deep, with the second layer one inch from both the back and front, so there is a lot of depth to the card. It actually was quite easy to make once I decided what I wanted to go into it.

I have messed with this design a few times and never been really happy, like the idea of the dies, a very lovely card.
