Hints and Tips
If you are working large projects and using a craft knife then replace the blade for each new project. You will know when the blade needs replacing as it pulls on the paper and you will not get a sharp line. Always have an extra supply of blades, you never know when you will need them!
Don't just use your silicone glue for 3d decoupage. If anything needs a lift then use it. I use mine to layer greetings from cards, lifting up punched out designs and anything else that I feel needs lifting!
Use a cocktail stick to apply your silicone glue. You can then take smaller amounts and place them where you need them most.
You can 3d decoupage anything as long as you have identical designs. Rubber stamps are great for this, good quality wrapping paper, and much more.
By cutting out all your design before sticking it down means that if you go wrong and the piece is hidden when layered, then you can cut it out of the base print.
If you are making cards then you don't have to decoupage everything. If something is too small then don't worry about it. Not everything has to be added to make a lovely card.
Enjoy yourself. This is a craft that can be shared so why not invite friends round and have a decoupage party. It is a fantastic excuse for tea, chat and card making!
The cards in the picture are made using the following:-
Little girl - Hummel die cut sheet. Die cut is already cut so you just pop out the pieces and layer them.
Snowman - The backing paper is pearlised hammered craft paper, Snowman is taken from the Christmas Artist Trading Cards and the snowflakes are made using the teabag effect papers.
