Seascape Sunset Greeting Card

I love this combination of stamp sets, dies, and colors. What a serene setting. So peaceful.

Create incredible layered dioramas with the Layering Diorama Dies! These dies nest to create a 3D effect for unique diorama card fronts. For an easy but intricate looking diorama, use a minimum of 3 diorama layers with tonal cardstock to create depth-of-field. Want to create a safari escape? An underwater world? Or frame a space exploration? The diorama designs are versatile to fit a wide variety of diorama landscapes!


Full list of supplies needed, listed below. A die cutting machine is needed for this card.

Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Create the scene
    • Use Diorama layer as a template.
    • Use Blending Brushes and the masking technique to create first the sky, and then the ocean. (I used large yellow stickies, but you could also use our masking paper.
    • Place the diorama mask on the Basic White layer.
    • Place large mask (yellow sticky) to cover the ocean while you create the sky.
    • Create the sky with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral ink and Blending Brushes.
    • Lift the sticky and use a new sticky to create a mask to cover the sky.
    • Create the ocean with Pool Party and Bermuda Bay ink and Blending Brushes.)
  4. Stamp the fish, the sentiment, and the plants in Tuxedo black ink.
  5. Stamp the sand in Sahara Sand ink.
  6. Wrap ribbon around layer, centered on the horizon line. Tie a bow. Adhere to card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
