3D HUGS card

This card was my first attempt at a 3D card using decoupage images. I LOVE how these cards pop! I printed this sheet up on white cardstock and cut out the 8 layers (I did that while watching TV so I didn't feel like I was wasting time). I matted the base background layer on white cardstock, then mounted 4 layers on top of that using 1/16" foam dots. I felt using all 8 layers was too much, and so used the 5 (think every other layer). This is all on a blue mat I embossed with my brand new scor-bug embosser--LOVE the look it gives! Then that's all matted on white and deep rose. I cut HUGS out on the cricut using Alphalicious and shadowed it, then pop dotted that on. Butterflies and branches were made with Martha Stewart punches (used the cuttlebug on the butterflies), and some Making Memories button brads.

The second picture shows the great dimension, and the third one shows what I did inside. I used the remaining 3 images, popped them up and taped it in. The sentiment was computer generated. This card is heavy and thick. It'll be mailed in a bubble envelope.

If you want to try one of your own, here's a link to the image.
