Fold Flat Diorama Card - KSS

For this week's Fun Fold design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I have created a three level diorama which folds flat for mailing. 

The basic construction is created with one kraft panel and one blue panel each measuring 5 inches by 7 inches and scored at 1 inch and 6 inches. The mid-range panel of kraft and blue are 2 inches by 6 inches and scored at 1/2 inch and 6 and 1/2 inches. I die cut the circle opening in the kraft panel and added a dark brown frame on the back side of it.  I did all the stamping and embellishing before scor-taping the panels together to complete the card.

Images used to create today's card come from the following Kitchen Sink sets:

Lighthouse Multi Step Clear Stamps
Cabin by the Lake Multi Step Clear Stamps
Berries Multi Step Clear Stamps (sentiment)

The die cut seabirds are by Impression Obsession and the wheel is from the Sea Breeze Collection by Couture Creations. The sea grass is punched with Martha Stewart's fern punch.

Here's a look inside to see how the center panel is attached.

Thanks for your visit today! I love it when you drop by!!
