Diorama Bug Card

It's been awhile since I made a diorama card and I forgot how fun -- and easy -- they are! It's really much easier than it looks. Check out Diana Gibb's tutorial over on SCS.

I made this bright colored birthday bug diorama for one of the kid's friends. One difference between mine and the SCS tutorial is that I used the 1-3/4" Circle punch in the center of both the outer and middle layers so that you could see the greeting better. I like the different shape it gives the window.

Supplies: Bug & Kisses, Wow Flowers (greeting), Tempting Turquoise ink & cardstock, Green Galore ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Real Red ink, Basic Black ink, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals

I've been thinking about getting this set, but I know if I do, they'll retire it next year!

Diorama cards look so cool but seem like they would be difficult to make. I will have to check out the tutorial and see if it's as bad as I imagine. Cute card! jmniffer
