Design Team Project from Joan McAlpine

Each week one of our Design Team will be making a project to share with you. We look forward to seeing what you do with the ideas. Here is our very first project from DT member, Joan. Hope you all enjoy having a go at making this different card shape, which is a versatile card shape that can be used for any kind of card, not just Christmas cards.

Diorama Card Christmas Card with Molly Blooms Stamps


Piece of Double Sided Design Paper (DSP) – A4 size
Molly Bloom stamps:
    Merry Christmas MB-0198C
    Sleigh MB-0260K
    Presents MB-0042K
    Reindeer MB-0259H
Fine glitter
Glossy accents
Mounting foam
Rich Cocoa Memento ink
White cardstock

Diorama Template:


Cut the DSP using the diorama template and glue together to make a box with flaps. This forms the basis for your scene.
The side flaps can be any width - paper size permitting, but flaps need reinforcing with additional paper so it stands well

The depth of the box is half (4cm) of the top measurement for the top of the box (8cm).
Stamp images (2 Reindeer, 2 Presents, 2 Sleighs) onto white cardstock and colour in, using your favourite markers e.g. Copics, Promarkers etc.
Cut out images and layer (layered reindeer saddles, red and beige present, holly and heart, middle girls hat and jacket) with mounting foam to create the scene as shown in the photo.
Add string for reigns, and red pearl or glitter for Rudolph's nose
Add fine glitter using glossy accents to snowlflakes, hat trims etc to finish.

Using the diorama template you can make a different and fun Christmas card using any Christmas stamps in your stash.

Gentle reminder – Christmas Day is 7 weeks today !
