Decoupage making is a very easy form of making cards for your love ones. This article helps to show you how to do it.

Making Decoupage Cards

Decoupage is a cheap and affordable way of making your own cards. The technique is very simple, you glue the principle picture onto A5 or A6 card, and you can add a colour paper backing as well to stick to the principle picture.

Once you have cut out the rest of the pictures, you use an adhesive pad to stick the pictures in the order of largest first. Which goes on top of the principle picture followed by the smallest last.

The photograph is a sheet that I had made. It has already got the card layout done for you. You just need to stick the image onto paper, and then stick on the bride and groom using adhesive pads to stick the pictures in the order of the largest first.
