Paper Crafting

I think my favourite style of card are the ones I make using 3d decoupage. That is an image that is layered with silicone so that it becomes 3d, then I varnish it with Prism clear glaze. I love the effect even though the cutting out can be a bit fiddly. The two robins are cut out this way but the two fairies are from the new die-cut decoupage sheets, they save lots of time and aggravation but still look beautiful.
This type of card is very quick to make. I had to make some cards for a charity coffee morning that a friend is giving. In less two days I made over 30 cards using this method, basically it's just gluing things in place on the card. I don't like them much myself but they are popular at fund raisers.

Hi Ann:
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment on my blog. I left one earlier today on yours, but it didn't post, so I will do it again.
I think your paper craft cards are beautiful. It looks like a lot of hard work with the detail involved. I especially like the fairies. You are very crafty!!!
