I recently found this awesome digi at Designed2Delight. For whatever reason I became obsessed with creating a 3-D look with this. My original plan was to do a Diorama card, but as I tried to think of the layout, I wasn't impressed with my ideas. Then I saw this modified version of a frame card that folds flat. This seemed perfect for my little city.
I printed the image out three times. Colored the main image then cut out and colored the front wall. I also cut out the small building directly behind the wall and colored it, as well as cutting and coloring the two small buildings one each side of the top building. I used various size pop ups, and some rolled pot dots to create a 3-D look.
I have a picture tutorial on the layout and sizes, you can go to the bar at the top of my blog and click on tutorials to see it. This was a challenge and for sure will go to someone special, but overall it wasn't hard once I figured out my measurements and the paper I wanted to use. The overall size of the card is 5.5 by 5.5 and because it is a bit thick, due to the 3-D effect and layering, it will need a 6 x 6 envelope for mailing. Or you could use a padded envelope to protect it more. It was great fun and to do and I already have ideas for a few more with totally different image in them.
