My First 3D Card!!

Yep this is my very first 3D card and I love it!!
How I made this card:
First the paper that I used on my Cricut to cut my card was actually wallpaper, the kind you can paint. I really like it because it is already embossed and very easy to work with. So after I cut my card on my Cricut (cut file is below) I painted it with "Metallic Pearl White Acrylic Paint" by Folk Art, Plaid. It gave the card a pearlized look.

Next: After the paint dried I put spray adhesive on the back of the card.

Tip: Hold card over garbage can or bucket while spraying to keep the spray from getting all over everything.

After spraying my card I layed it flat on dark blue 12 x 12 background paper. Then pressed from the middle outward. Once the card and the background paper were securely attached to one another I trimmed off the access blue paper.

Tip: Be sure your background paper is larger than your card to give yourself room for error. You can always trim but you can never add.

Next: I painted the blue background paper on the front of the card but left the middle oval part alone. I used the same paint as above.

Next: I cut my 3D art, stacked the pics and used foam strips to give it a raised affect. I then glued the completed 3D art onto the middle of my card. Thats it.

I hope I have explained how I made this card in a way you can understand what I am saying. If you have questions just leave me a comment and I will try to answer.

Tip: To find 3D art just do an internet search for "free 3D Decoupage".

ENJOY and have a Blessed Day and thank you for visiting my blog!!!

This is so GORGEOUS. I love this cut file. It's so elegant.

Wanda, I wanted to say thank you again for sharing your tip about using the spray glue. I used it for the two cards I made and shared on SCAL Hints and it worked great. I am not sure I could have ever gotten them glued down if not for your tip and luckily I had a can of spray glue.

Thanks for the great tip and the beautiful card.

Big Hugs!

OK It does pay to read all the instructions. LOL Now I see how you got the pretty sheen to your wallpaper...using the pearl paint.

It really makes a beautiful paper.

Hugs!
