Christmas Stamping All Year Long # 40 -It's a Diorama

This will be our final challenge for this year! With Christmas coming, there is so much to do that we will take a break until next year. If you played along with all the challenges, you should have 40 cards complete! That's 40 more than I had finished this time last year! So i'm pretty happy.

Thanks for playing along. This weeks challenge is to create a Diorama card. You can find the directions HERE on splitcoaststampers. My good friend Diana Gibbs authored this Tutorial. It looks quite complicated, but really is very simple. The only difference in my card is that I used nestie's to punch my centres and I cut my cardstock to 5" high rather than 3".

The Cardstock I used is baby blue, pale lilac and burgandy. The stampset is retired and is called City of David ( I here I go again!). I ran the front panel through the cuttle bug for dimension.

Don't forget to hop on over to the CSAYL Blog to check out the Dynamite creations!!!

Happy Stamping!
