Gorgeous Diorama!

Christmas greetings again, my friends! I wanted to share this beautiful idea for the holidays:

It's very difficult to photograph, but it's called a Diorama Card. Through the windows, you can read "Peaceful Wishes". Here's another view so you can see the 3D effect better:

And to give you an even more detailed view, here it is from above:

I originally didn't think it would fit in an envelope with that star sticking off the top, but it DOES! I just checked, and when you flatten this down, it fits beautifully inside a Stampin' Up! Small Open-End envelope! How perfect is that?! Who wouldn't love to receive this as a Christmas card?

I used Always Artichoke, Soft Sky, and a piece from the Wintergreen designer series paper (LOVE that paper!). The oval windows were made with the Coluzzle (which Stampin' Up! sells). The front window is one size bigger than the middle window. I stamped the back panel with some stamps from the Peaceful Wishes stamp set and I stamped the Print Pattern background onto the front panel. The sentiment and the star are both embossed with gold powder.

Well, what do you think?

What do I think? I think the title of your post describes it best!
