Diorama Christmas Card

The final Diorama Card.
Cut a piece of cardstock the measurements shown above. Score the lines and fold either valley or hill. Then   using a Cuttlebug and a folder put the middle panel through the Cuttlebug.

Ink the embossed image plus parts of the cardstock. This was Evergreen Versa Color. The embossing folder I used here was one by Bringing Crafts-Too you.

Cut out the middle panel.

Showing the folds and the baubles that have been inked and cut out by hand from a Cuttlebug embossed piece of cardstock. Also the sentiments from a printed font from the computer have been adhered to the card.

Adhere the folded panel to a card base that measures 30cm x15cm. In this case I didn't  fold it exactly in the middle. I allowed a side piece from the back to show through.

Adhere red Basic Grey pieces of patterned paper over the adhered  edges of the raised panel.

Adhere the same Basic Grey paper to the inside of the card that shows through down the right hand side edge.

Ink over the green embossed card with Gold to give it a filigree  effect. Add Basic Grey strips over the red paper so only hints of red show through.
See the top card to see the end result.
