Boat Diorama

Good Evening!

I’d like to share another diorama card with you today, I was so pleased with how the bedroom diorama card turned out that I decided to make a different version for another family member. I needed to send this one through the post so it was an ideal choice as a diorama card closes flat enough to fit into an envelope even though there is a dimensional surprise lurking inside. I did create this cut file for a specific person but if it can be of any use to you, you are very welcome to it :)

The main advise I can give to you when it comes to assembly is to fold along all of the score lines to get a feel of how it all goes together. Attach some strong double sided tape to the edges of the scene layers then attach the foremost layer first (the shorter wave section) behind the circle working backwards into the scene. Once all of the layers (including the backing sky and sun layer) are in place you can close up the box section with more tape.

I sandwiched some acetate between the boat layers to give the effect of windows:

In case you were wondering, I kept the front of my card very simple as all of the drama is inside but it did have the recipient’s name on there which is why there is no photo :)

    I had to laugh when I looked at that tipping boat…it reminded me of the saying…
    It’s not the size of the ship that makes you sick,
    It’s the motion of the ocean.
    Thanks for this great file I’ll be able to send to my brother!
