Thanksgiving Diorama Card by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

Now that Halloween is over I am looking towards Thanksgiving.  I decided to use the Full of Thanks Set from last years release to make a really simple diorama card.  It has several layers with a silly image attached to each one.  It folds flat to fit into an envelope, but pops up and sits like a little scene.
The images were stamped onto Spetrum Noir Ultra Smooth paper with My Favorite Things Extreme Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.  The colors used are listed at the end of this post. The images were fussy cut and set aside. The background was ink blended onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Distress Oxide inks using the foam pads on the mini blending tools. It was spritzed with a Distress Sprayer and dried for the white splatter effect.  From top to bottom the colors used were Fired brick, Fossilized Amber and Tea Dye. Lastly, the Greeting was stamped on.
The Diorama part was made using two 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of 65 lb. Kraft paper.  Don't use really thick paper or your box won't fit together very well. Both sheets of paper were cut to 8 1/2" x 4 /12".  The two outer pieces were cut at 6 3/4" and scored at 3/4" and 6". One piece was cut at 6 1/4" and scored at 1/2" and 5 3/4". One piece was cut at 5 3/4" and scored at 1/4" x 5 1/2". The Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle Dies were used to cut the openings, but any dies shape be used.  Tip : It is important to line the dies up with each other at this stage.  Cut the largest shape from the outside and line the next smaller die inside the cut area. The card base was assembled next. The smallest piece was attached to the next smallest inner piece with a liquid glue. The back edges were lined up with the window at the front. The outer piece without the window was set upside down and adhesive was applied to the outside of both sides of the inner pieces and they were attached to the outer piece towards the back. The card was shut to make sure everything moved correct.  Next, adhesive was applied to the outer portion of both sides of the inner pieces and the last piece was attached around it with the window facing out. The card was shut again to make sure everything was moving correct.  Lastly, the images were attached in place making sure the adhesive was only applied where they would be touching the card.  The finished card measures 6" x 4 1/4".
