Tutorial: Festive Wonder Diorama Card
Sara Davies is back again to share a tutorial with products from her new Festive Wonder collection!
I really love to make these diorama cards as they fold flat to go in an envelope but will stand up to take pride of place on a mantle or card display! And adding just a touch of gilding wax makes it look so luxurious!
Here's what I used on this one:
Step 1: Trim two sheets of red Core'dinations 11" x 7", score each sheet 1" and 2" at each side, fold and burnish. Cut a square aperture into the center of one piece of card, cut a frame to fit card front using your choice of the Festive Wonder papers.
I chose the poinsettia pattern for this card but you could certainly try a different one to see how it looks! I designed this range so that everything would coordinate well together and allow you use whatever you wanted to personalize cards for the recipients!
Step 2: Cut a square of acetate to fit aperture, adhere in place.
Step 3: Die-cut and emboss five of each poinsettia petals using red card. Gently rub gold gilding wax over the petals. Die-cut five leaves using green card.
Step 4: Affix each petal to the acetate a wet glue. This will enable maneuvering of the petals until you`re happy where they are.
Step 5: Die-cut 'Merry Christmas' using gold card and affix to the card front.
Step 6: Using Collall tacky glue, apply down each side of card, affix to other Core'dinations card to finish diorama card.
