Decoupage is the perfect place to start if youíve never tried 3D card making - or even ordinary card making - before. Decoupage paper makes life easy for even the most novice card maker - each sheet is pre-printed with one or more designs made up of several parts, which you can layer up to create fantastic 3D and even pop up cards. The designs are usually large enough to act as the main focal point on your card, so all you need to do once youíve assembled the decoupage is stick the finished design onto a card blank, add a greeting of your choice and you have a complete card. Simple!
There are lots of different types of decoupage, with square, oval, rectangular and shaped designs, as well as a multitude of different themes. To make life simpler for you, we have grouped our sheets of decoupage by theme, including Christmas, Cute, Flowers, Men and more, so you should find it easy to find a suitable sheet whatever the occasion.
Whatís even handier is that most of the decoupage sheets we stock on Handy Hippo are die cut, which means you can simply push out the individual parts of each design from the sheet, rather than having to cut them all out with scissors. This saves you a lot of time and fiddling, especially when it comes to more intricate decoupage designs. Then itís just a case of layering them up using glue dots, sticky pads, etc to create a fabulous 3D design.
Once youíve practised and mastered decoupage, and feel a little bit more confident in your crafting, you can move onto other techniques like decopatch and die cutting, which allow you to create your very own layered designs from scratch - and then thereíll be no stopping you.
