Tip Place your cut out images through your die cutting machine to flatten the edges for a more professional finish.

3.  With your second print, colour and cut out the bird, flowers and single leaf as a single image. To give your image more dimension, bend the image around your finger gently. Under the cut outs, add foam pads and stick to the main image. Try and aligned it as neatly as possible for a cleaner finish.

4.  For your third layer, colour and cut out the bird and large flower. Gently shape it again and add foam pads to the back and layer on top of the image.

5.  On the last image, colour and cut out the bird, add foam pads and stick to the image.

6.  Cut a 14.5cm x 14.5cm square with a piece of backing paper and add to the kraft card blank with double sided tape. With a contrasting backing paper, cut a 14cm x 5cm strip and stick across the middle of the card.

7.  To create a frame for your card, mat your decoupage image onto the 9.3cm x 8.3cm piece of pink paper and stick to the card at an angle.

8.  Add a sentiment to the card, we have printed the ‘Love & Wishes’ stamp onto a piece of white card and cut out with a fishtail design. Stick several pieces of foam tape under the centre of card and stick on the bottom left of your card at an angle. We have stuck the short edges of the card with double sided tape so it stays in place.

9.  To decorate your card, you can add a floral button, feeding some twine through the button holes and create a bow before sticking to the right side of the card.

10.  For a pretty finishing touch, add some sequins to the top of the card, we have added ours to the centre of the printed flowers.

6.  With a contrasting piece of paper, die cut a doily and cut in half, place one piece to the top left of the card and the other to the bottom right of the card, both at an angle.  We have then used the pastel butterfly patterned paper to cut a 10cm square. Layer on top of the doily at an angle.

7.  With the glitter effect striped paper, cut a 3cm x 15cm band and stick onto the centre of the card.

8.  Mount your decoupage stag image to a piece of 9cm x 9cm pink backing paper and place in the middle of the card to create a centrepiece.

9.  Print the ‘Live your dreams’ stamp on a contrasting piece of paper and cut to size. We have then placed three pieces of 3D foam to the back of the paper to create a curved effect. Layer the sentiment text over the bottom left corner of the pink patterned paper. To finish your card, add a wooden shape to the top right of the card, we have used the floral shape to coordinate with our stamped image.
