The dies on the front is from Crafter's Companion Die-sire dies. What's cool about these are that there are two seperate dies, a left side and a right side that you can use seperately or together, plus 2 more seperate butterflies. I chose to use both sides, which fits together seemlessly, and one of the butterflies.
On this one, the diorama is just a front and a back. But I've seen very intricate ones with as many as 6 layers deep. Pretty fun. Maybe one of these days I'll give it a shot.
The base papers for this is pretty easy. The dies put together cut a 5x5" opening. So I figured a 6x6" front, plus 1/2 " on either side, plus another 1" on either side.
So you cut 2, 9x6" pcs of paper, scoring at 1", 1 1/2", 7 1/2" and 8", and then cut out the dies in the center. After you decorate both pieces, you adhere the two 1" sides together.
That's it for today!
Thanks for stoppin' by and to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along.
