Home Grown Love on the Home Front in 3-D!

Happeeee Daaay everyone... Lynne here today, and for my second Susan K. Weckesser design team post this month I am sharing my first try at a three-dimensional diaorama/card...
Let me start off by saying that I LOVE to fussy cut - and if that's not your favorite thing, this may not be the project for you (smile) but I had a lot of fun making pieces for my diaorama and then attaching them using a variety of paper tabs and foam pop dots.
For some elements, like the house, I stamped the image on several different card stocks and created a dimensional little element that I attached to the diaorama; 
 For other elements, like the sun,  I stamped and cut out and popped off the background;

It was like assembling a very intricate puzzle where you were building up AND out AND around... and it made my creative brain VERY Happy..
Susan's extra thick paper line was perfect for this project because the 120lbs paper has more body than even card stock so it stand up well to being used for 3-D.... I started with a 12"x4" strip of cardstock that I scored and folded at the 4" mark to make an "L" shape - that was my base... and I added another 3" piece of cardstock to the bottom after I had "cut" my grass... to give it a bit more stability.
The way I used paper strips to attach the inital trees, and house help gives the entire project stability...
I used several of Susan's Unity stamp sets on this project and I stamped everything except the house right onto the Live in Full Color paper line using Archival balck ink- no coloring required!
I stamped the "home grown love on the home front" sentiment in green ink all over the back of my diaorama to add some interest, and for that finishing touch I cut out this great photo of my hubby and grandsons, and attached it so they are sitting looking at our home...

And of course it just wouldn't be mine if I didn't cover it in stickles and liquid glass for that pop of sunshiney sparkle!

So thanks for stopping by to share with me today... I hope my little project brings you joy!
