Diorama Card for my Daughter's Birthday

Happy Memorial Day Weekend.  

Besides the wind, it was a beautiful weekend for us.  Alyssa came home for the weekend and that always makes me happy.  But, it was also Megan's Birthday on Saturday.  It's hard to believe my baby is no 24 years old!  Where did that time go?  It seems like just yesterday, she was just starting dance classes and fighting with her sister.  

Of course, I have to make them their birthday cards.  They actually seem a little disappointed if I don't.  And that does make me feel good.

Megan does love vacations at the beach, so I tried to replicate a beach sunset.  And of course, she's holding a glass of wine, possibly a red  Sangria.  She does love a good Sangria.

I used blends to color the girls from In the Moment stamp set.  For around her, I used Watercolor Pencils, both sets and a blender pen.  I wanted her to stand out and the scenery to fade behind her.  

For the first time, I used the Layering Diorama Dies.   I honestly do not remember ordering them so I figured it was about time to use them.  I went with the same colors used on the background, Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight. 

Take a peek at the layers.  Think I used enough dimensionals?  They were used between every layer.  Megan did notice how thick her card really was!  It wouldn't be one to send through the post.

I don't have the exact dimensions on this card, or also the instructions.  I was kind of in a hurry to make it.  Below, you can see most of the products used in making the card.  Sorry, if I missed one or two.

Until next time...Stampin' Always,

Cheryl, HomeStyle Stamper
