For today's splitcoast challenge, you had to use the colours pretty in pink, lovely lilac and certainly celery. SO, I decided I'd combine yesterday's challenge of the diorama box and today's colour challenge and do a quick tutorial on my diorama card. I used the stamp set By Ones and By Twos from the current SU mini catalogue. Isn't it a sweet set? Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Start with your cardstock pieces. The back and the front pieces of cardstock are 4 1/4 by 8 1/2. You then score them both 2 inches from each end. The middle colour (mine Celery) is 4 1/4 x 6 1/2 and you score this one inch from each end.
Next cut out the window from your front piece. I left a 3/4 inch border around the window. There are a few ways to do this, I use my Fiskars and measure as I go. You can also draw where you want to cut your window and then use your cutter or an exacto knife.
Embellish your three layers. Remember to make the display interesting and to stamp/embellish even outside the window dimensions because once the card is assembled and open you can see more than just the window.
