Cute Handmade 3D Decoupage Cards - 13 - Hugging Bears

And another card designed using the "Forever Friends - Hugs and Cuddles" paper pack. Congratulations on new baby girl arrival - card in pink.

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)
  • 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 2 bears with the pink-checks background. 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 big bear holding a small bear (without little bear's legs, right ear and right hand and without big bear's left ear and part of left leg) as shown in the picture above. From the second picture card cut out an outline of the big bear's right foot, right hand and head as well as the little bear's left hand as shown on 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 picture card paper with the bears and the pink-checks background 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 bears. Take the cut outs from the first picture card and attach them to the card over the original picture 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 message outline sticker to the card.
