Setting the Scene with the Daring Cardmakers & Docrafts

This week over on Daring Cardmakers we have a sponsored dare from Docrafts. You can learn all about their new 'Build a Scene' dies win a set of the brand new dies and see what some of the Daring cardmakers design team have made using the dies, http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/setting-scene.html
Go check it out!
Here's the card I made for this week:

I ended up making a scene card from scratch. I decided on a shop window scene and picked out the papers to use then sketched out the pieces, (window frame, canopy, window box etc) on the back of the paper before cutting them out. The card base is a 5x7 size but I made an extra folded bit on the bottom, (so cut the card to 10x9 inches then folded and folded up the bottom edge the extra 2 inches then cut it off from the back panel so it was just left at the front of the card). The panel folds up along with the chalkboard so it can fit in an envelope.
For the decoration bits I used two sets of older Docrafts stamps I had. I used that as a starting point looking through my stamps to see what I shop I could make using the stamps I had to make the scene :)

Have fun making your scene cards and don't forget to check out the Daring Cardmakers blog this week for your chance to win some fun goodies from Docrafts!

Your card is SO clever! I love that little chalkboard, and what a brilliant idea to have it fold up like that, genius!

Your card is beautiful. Amazing that you created the whole scene from scratch. And the chalkboard is so cute!
