I was inspired to try a Diorama card after reading brianna c1’s post on the MTC Forum and watching the video there, a Diorama card folds flat but when you open the card it pops up into a 3d box shape. I do love a card that moves or does something unexpected so this is right up my street. Of course I always have to complicate things even though I’d never made a Diorama card before, I added extra layers within the box area to form a scene.
My card was for a little girl who loves dancing and was having a bedroom makeover as part of her Birthday present including big fluffy rugs so that might explain why I designed the card as I did. Although I designed this card for a specific person, if any part of it can be of any use to you then you are very welcome to it :)
I cut my card from a sheet of A3 card and set the card height to approx 5.5 inches so it just fit on the sheet lengthways. I folded all of the score lines on my card then added each of the internal layers, attaching them by their folding side panels, starting with the front layer first working to the back. I cut each layer in a darker shade to add to the depth of scene and cut a panel of the darkest shade to glue to the back then used some strong tape to close the box area.
