Just follow the steps below to make
this 3D Decoupage card.
Cutting out the Image
To cut out the image use a craft knife and scissors, nail scissors that
have a rounded blade are also useful.
Start with the intricate cutting
and small areas rather than leave them until last, this way you'll have more of
the image to hold on to.
Decoupage cutting tips
sure you cut into the corners, don't be tempted to pull the paper, if the cuts
do not meet, pulling the paper will leave jagged edges or fraying.
the knife upright and not at an angle to avoid white edges.
If you do
get any white edges simply colour them with felt tip or water colour paint.
Always cut away from a corner.
The first layer onto the card using Uhu Stic glue.
Build up the decoupage
The next layers can be stuck with either Silicone glue or sticky pads,
however you'll get better results with silicone.
Applying Silicone glue
Squeeze out a small amount of glue onto a nonabsorbent surface, using
a tooth pick or fine tipped embossing tool, roll the end in the glue to pick up
a small blob, then apply the glue to the back of the layer.
Adding Shape to
To add more shape and depth to your finished
image, emboss the layers to give them a more rounded effect.
you apply the last layer, turn it over and place it on a mouse mat, then using
the handle of a tea spoon gently emboss the image.
Total time taken to make this 3D decoupage
card was around 45 minutes.
