As Seen on TV: Graduation Diorama Card for Class of 2016

I pre-taped a Creative Corner segment for ciLiving that is going to air today. Central Illinois fans, be sure to tune in and watch it live between 4-5 pm on WCIA today. I'll update this post with the link to the video once it's posted.

I had so much fun creating diorama cards. It's really easy once you know how to cut and score the cardstock. One of my favorite cards was this graduation card. I think any graduate would love these blingy gold number. This is definitely a card you can keep on display throughout the graduation open house season!
Pin It! 
The question I get asked the most when I share diorama cards like this is "where do you write?" You can write on the inside of the back side of the diorama card. But if you have a lot to say, you may consider adding a small card to the back of the diorama. This will also act as an easel and help keep the card upright. I used the Pocketful of Cheer stamps from the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit to decorate the mini card on the back. The finished card size is 3" x 3-3/4".
In case you missed it, check out my video tutorial to learn how to make the diorama card and see more samples of this fun technique!

Julie - Thursday p.m. I saw an advertisement for CI Living and they mentioned that the Creative Corner segment for the next day would feature "graduation" and "cards," and I thought: That must mean Julie will be on. So I actually remembered that for 24 hours and tuned in Friday afternoon and saw your demo for these diorama cards. Love the versatility.
