Winter diorama

I saw a similar card made by Kerry Bunting from Australia and fell in love with it. I made a few changes including size so it would fit into an A7 envelope (5 1/4 x 7 1/4). The card folds flat to 5x7 size. Her card used the entire middle panel of glimmer paper, but I just cut a frame as suggested by Linda Higgins who made the original card in reds and greens. I added the sentiment on the bottom front and an "all is calm snowflake" embellishment.  
Dimensions are 5x8.5 for the front and back night of navy piece and 5x7 for the inside smoky slate piece. Score the navy 1.5" from each end and the slate 3/4" from each end. Use deco label framelits for the openings and silver glimmer frame.
The trees (pine from lovely as a tree) are embossed with a mixture of half white and half iridescent ice embossing powder. There is a mound of snow cut from dazzlings diamonds glimmer paper behind the houses from holiday home. Don't you absolutely love the lamppost?! That was fun to cut out :)
