Where the wild things are

Every morning and every evening as I walk out my front door I see deer, many species of birds and sometimes rabbits.  We live in a subdivision that is outside the city limits and having wildlife live in our yards is not unusual which inspired me to create a wildlife scene in a diorama card.  These cards seem difficult to make but they’re really easy.  Just follow the tutorial at SCS.  The dimensions for my card are smaller but just keep the proportions in the tutorial and you can make these cards in many different sizes.  The dimensions for the card I made will fit in the SU medium envelopes (Medium envelopes measure 5 3/4″ x 4-3/8).  Here are the dimensions for the card I made.

Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 7.5″ x 4.25″ for front and back covers and score 2″ from each short side.

Cut 1 piece of cardstock 5.5″ x 4.25″ for middle panel and score 1″ on each short side.

Here are my wild things.
