sunken decoupage card - strictly party


Hello everybobs xx this card has been done for my stepdaughters 21st birthday xx
She lives in malta and i thought the image was lovely lke the maltese beauty she is with long dark hair x
ive made this using papermanias strictly party pack and a sunken decoupage effect...its not easy to do sunken decoupage BUT nice effect when done...


you need to make up your matted layers for the front of your card but NOT attach them to the card YET..

then you need to make up your decoupage and measure how big the image is...

next decide where you want it to be on your card front and cut a shaped hole that is slightly smaller than your decoupage image (so it covers it and shows no edges) i used a nestie but as my card front was an 8x8 card and wouldnt go through my cuttlebug i cut the shape... drew round it on my card front then cut it out manually....

now lay the card front onto your card blank... and draw the outline through your shape onto your card... this is where you glue down your decoupage picture... then on the back of your card front place strips of sticky back foam from a roll OR lots of foam pads that will raise the front of your card before attaching it making sure the pic is in the middle of the hole you made.

the effect you then get is the sunken decoupage,,, it dosent raise up above your card but is in its own little alcove,,,, a real nice effect xxxx
