Spooky Diorama Card

Another SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot computer program) card using a SVG cut file from - check out the site for additional cut files. Everything shown is in the cut file except the front stamped message. Now how easy can this be? This gate fold diorama card has cool shutters. All pieces are sponged with either black ink or SU Craft White ink. Finished card measures 4" x 5" and will fit into a A2 envelope.....Yay!

Here's the "Open if you Dare" stamped message....I think I found this in the $1 spot last year (before Michael's changed it to be the $1.50 spot!)

Open the left shutter to reveal a spider web:

Open the right shutter to reveal the "BOO" words stamped using SU Craft White ink.....

With all the shutter doors open, the center is the diorama: window is a black mat. A pair of Ghosts popped with dimensionals. I did add a 4"x 4" SU retired Halloween DSP scrap. And, yes, everything is sponged with black ink.

Here is the top view. The shutters? They are attached in the slots so they are "hidden".

Here is the card collapsed to send out.

Here are the pieces cut from the SVG cut file to make this card:

This is how the pieces are placed on the computer:


  • Stamps: unknown

  • CS: SU Pumpkin Pie, Recollections Black-White, SU Grey, SU retired Halloween DSP

  • Ink: SU Black, SU Craft White

  • Accys: SVG Cut File for Spooky Diorama Card, Dimensionals, Sticky Tape, White Gel pen, Sponge Dauber, 2 Way Glue Pen

And, if you don;t have the SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot computer program) to make this card, visit Jackie Topa's Blog posted 10/25/2010 for some instructions on how to make this card/box using some tools you may already have on hand.
