Simple Diorama Card from the Scrap Pile

Today’s post is brought to you by Craft Collabs!

I belong to a great group of supportive crafters over on Facebook called Craft Collabs. Each month we do an event to support each other in building our businesses – whether that’s a hop (YT, blog, Instagram), or a “shout out” day, or a swap. It’s really a lot of fun and it’s cool to see other creative work and share in each other’s successes.

This month, we’re doing a CASE the CREATOR week! Each participant was matched up to another participant for inspiration. My inspiration was Joanne Soukup at Perky Penny Paper Arts. You can find her on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and her blog.

I found this fun project of Joanne’s – a “reverse canvas diorama”. It inspired me to do a simple fun fold diorama card!

The bonus was that I pulled out the majority of the pieces from my scraps pile! I often have leftover elements or discarded backgrounds that I keep in a drawer that I occasionally rifle through to create something else. I happened to find the stenciled background panel, the diecut and a few of the potted plant elements already done for me!

I just had to color a few additional Garden Grow elements and create the front panel with oval diecut to finish off the project. 

So, don’t toss the leftovers! You never know when you’ll be able to use them for another project!

Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the post to qualify for my quarterly giveaway!

Who inspires you?

I thoroughly enjoyed exploring Joanne’s recent projects! Remember, when you CASE, it’s proper etiquette to link back to the original creator and share a few words about how you were inspired!

I encourage you to dive into your Pinterest boards and follow along with some of your favorite creators (hopefully, I’m one of them!) to find inspiration for your next project.
