Cute Handmade 3D Decoupage Cards - 4 - Cuddly Rabbit

This is another card designed using the "Forever Friends" paper packs. It's celebrating arrival of a new baby girl.

To make this card you will need:

  • Forever Friends "Hugs & Cuddles" 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)
  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Message outline sticker "Congratulations"
  • Adhesive gem - pink 
  • 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 rabbit. 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 rabbit's legs, hands and head with the ears, 5 buttons and the bow with the tag as shown in the picture above. From the second card cut out rabbit's ears, nose and mouth and feet and a heart from the tag as shown on the top right corner of the picture above. This bit is quite fiddly and it does take some 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 a whole picture card of the rabbit and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. Cut off the part of the picture card that overlaps the white card.

Now it's time to use the cut out parts of the rabbit, buttons and tag. Take the cut outs from the first picture card and attach them to the card over the original pictures using foam pads. Then take the cut outs from the 2nd picture card and again attach them to the picture on the card using foam pads, creating layers.

Attach a gem to the heart and add a message outline sticker.
