Cute Handmade 3D Decoupage Cards - 8 - Bathtime Teddybear

And another card designed using the "Forever Friends - Hugs and Cuddles" paper pack. New baby girl!!! Congratulations!

To make this card you will need:

  • Forever Friends "Hugs & Cuddles" paper pack (6 x 6 in) - I purchased mine in Hobbycraft but they do not seem to stock it anymore - if you like, you can purchase it through my blog's link
  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  •  Pink-check card paper (15 x 15cm) - from the Forever Friends "Hugs & Cuddles" paper pack
  • Raspberry pink card paper (10 x 10cm)
  •  Pale yellow card paper (9 x 9cm)
  • Message outline sticker "Congratulations"
  • 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 wrapped in a bath towel. You will need 3 of those. 

Cut out parts of the 3 pictures as shown in the picture bellow.

From the first picture cut out an outline of the whole bear wrapped in the towel. From the second picture card cut out an outline of the bear's left leg, then cheeks-mouth-nose with the towel and right hand and right leg as shown in the picture above. From the third card cut out bears left leg and right leg with a piece of the towel as shown on the picture above. Also cut out few of the bubbles. 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 pink-checks card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. Take a pale yellow card (9 x 9 cm) and attach it to the raspberry pink card (10 x 10 cm) using double sided tape. Attach the pale yellow-raspberry pink card paper to the middle of the pink-checks card using foam pads.

Now it's time to use the cut out parts of the bear and the bubbles. Take the cut outs from the first picture card (whole bear wrapped in the towel) and attach them to the pale yellow card using double sided tape. Take the cut outs from the second picture card and attach them to the card over the original picture using foam pads. Then take the cut outs from the 3rd picture card and again attach them to the picture on the card using foam pads, creating layers. Also attach bubbles using foam pads (see picture of the finished card).

Attach a message outline sticker to the card.
