Diorama Box Card

Hello, crafty friends!!!

Today, I am sharing a tutorial on how to make a diorama box card.

You will need (2) 4 1/4” x 7 5/16” panels
***don’t be scared, the 5/16 mark is the little line next to the 1/4 mark :)

Score and fold at 1 1/2” and 7”

Cut at an angle on the 5/16” flap 
(as shown below)

to make a window

For the inserts (grass), the length
is 6 1/2” - scored at fold at 1/2” and 6” 

The height of the inserts will 
vary on how high
you want to place
your stamped elements. 
To assemble:

1. place a strip of scor tape
on the 5/16” flaps

2. Tape one of the flaps onto the 
other panel so that it creates one
long piece, as shown below

3. I recommend working on the background 
first before putting the box together. 
The background is an A2 panel, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

4. Adhere the background and adhere one side of the 
inserts before closing the box completely. It is 
the same method used when building the Lawn Fawn
scalloped box card. Here is their tutorial.

5. Complete the box
by taping the other 5/16 flap onto the other panel's 
1 1/2 flap, forming a box

Here is my completed diorama box card:

I love that it folds flat and fits inside an A7 envelope for mailing. The dimension of the card when folded is 4 1/4 x 7". The stamps used for this graduation card are: Woodland Critters, Bunny Friends, and Congrats Grad

Here is another version of the box card:

This time, I only used one panel that measures 4 1/4 x 7" and the 2 (grassy) inserts.

I hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial and you are inspired to make a diorama box card. It's easy to assemble and you don't need to buy new dies. You can use whatever shape you have for the window, but I love the PPP Stitched Notes Die as it leaves stitched marks along the window. 

Until next time!

Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy  9th birthday, PPP!  Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.  For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for inter

Pretty Pink Posh March 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started with a 4.5” square white cardstock and I ink blended through the Layered Carrots Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks.  Layer A: Dried Marigold Layer B: Spiced Marmalade Layer C: Twisted Citron I then matted this stenciled panel on a 5” square cardstock that I ink blended with Spiced Marmalade. For added interest, I sprayed this larger panel with water that has a bit of white ink.  Next, I cut the dies from the Winter Mug Dies and the new Easter Mug Additions Dies in white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and Distress Oxide Inks. The blue bunny mug also got a print from the Mini Grid Stencil . Before foam mounting the mug, I placed a sheet of vellum to soften the carrot background and I also stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink.  Here are the Copic markers I used for the mini eggs: BG70, R00, V000, Y11, YG61, YR000 I embellished the card with Pi
