Cute Handmade 3D Decoupage Cards - 1 - Bear Opening a Present

To make this card you will need:

  • Forever Friends "Party Time" paper pack (6 x 6 in) - I purchased mine in Hobbycraft, however if you like you can purchase it through Amazon (direct link is on my blog)
  • Adhesive ribbon in pale pink
  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Message outline sticker 
  • Double sided tape
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick - it makes the 3D effect more noticeable - but you can use thinner craft foam pads if you prefer)

Find the picture of the bear with the balloons opening a present. You will need 3 of those. 

Cut out parts of the 2 pictures (keep the 3rd one on side for now) as shown in the picture bellow. 

From the first picture cut out an outline of the bear (without the ears) with the box and the lid as shown in the top left corner of the picture above. From the second card cut out bear's left hand with the lid, then bear's left leg with the box and the ribbon and then the two balloons as shown on the right side of the white card in the picture above. This bit is a bit fiddly and it does take a bit of time to cut it all out (I used nail scissors) but the rest is very quick and easy.

Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take the 3rd card with the picture of the bear and cut off the left side of the card alongside the Happy Birthday message (cutting the message off). Then using double sided tape attach the card with the picture of the bear to the right of the folded white card. Take the adhesive ribbon and attach it to the card along the left edge of the picture card so that the ribbon is overlapping both pink and white card, thus covering the cut line.

Now it's time to use the cut out parts of the bear. Take the outline of the bear with the box and the lid (from the 1st picture) and using foam pads attach it to the picture on the card. Then take the cut outs from the second picture and again attach them to the picture on the card using foam pads.

Add message outline sticker of your choice to the card.
