This week I am making some Christmas cards using products from the docrafts range.
I have used the Cosy Christmas A4 Decoupage Pack which consists of 4 die-cut sheets (2 different designs) and 4 patterned papers (2 different designs).
Now I have never done any decoupage before so I was a bit daunted by the prospect as it had seemed a bit fiddly in my mind. I need not have worried because the sheet of decoupage patterns are all die-cut for you so all you have to do is pop the pictures out....they are even numbered in the order they go...very simple and no cutting involved.
Card 1. I have used a tri-fold card to make this card. I covered the front with some of the patterned paper in the Decoupage pack. I made the decoupaged image by overlapping the images and mounting them with foam tape and attached it to some red cardstock. The title was also found in the decoupage pack. I inked around the edges with red ink to define the border.
Here's a close-up of the decoupaged image...
Card 2. I have made this card using a decorative door card blank. I used patterned paper for the inside paper. To decorate the front cover, I embossed using a script stamp, inked, assembled the decoupaged image and attached it to the front.
Card 3. I have again used a tri-fold card to make this card. I embossed some cardstock with the docrafts snowflake embossing folder, assembled the decoupaged image using foam squares in between each layer and added a title to the bottom.
Card 4. I have made this card using a decorative door card blank. I used patterned paper for the inside paper. To decorate the front of the card I glimmer-misted in green then I wrote 'christmas blessings' over and over until the card was covered with a red jounaling pen. I again assembled the decoupaged image and attached it to the front of the card where the doors open.
Thanks for looking!
