Decoupage Tutorial #2

Hello my awesome followers. Today i like to use Image Ring Mistress Circus Showgirl by Rick St. Dennis for my Decoupage tutorial.

 You can find this image HERE. So lets get started;
First you need to print Digital image 3 or 4 times, as many layers as you like. I printed image 3 times. Then you need to look good how to layer image to make it 3D'. My main  image i colored all shadows first with Prisma Pencils, and you already see how it's made my image pop out of the paper
Now lets do some colors.
On this Photo you can see how i colored my first image. You need to remember, after you layer all of them, you not going to see the middle of the image. So why color??? Right???

Now lets put our image together by using some pop dots or 3D glue
Here is what i have on the end
I love all the layers, and she looks like a Doll
And the other side
I think she is ready for the SHOW.
 And here is my card.
I hope this will help you to create your own Decoupage projects. Let me know in the comments Box if this tutorial was helpful . I would love to hear from you.

EnveloBox Tutorial

Hello ladies. Most of my square cards are 6"x6".  And i never can find an Envelope to fit my cards, so i made one.  I know we have many tutorials on the web, but i just didn't understand them. So here is how i did. I used MS score board, if you don't have one you can use ruler and score tool. I have here on first Photo Paper12"x12" square. I put my 6"x6" card right in the middle of this page, and that's how i find out where to make my first score, make sure to have your page in this positions like on this Photo.
I made my Envelope little bigger then a card, so my envelope is 6"1/4x6"1/4.  Score like you see on the Photo. Do this on all 4 sides. Then you need to put your card flat and see thickness of your embellishments. Measure that,  and that's where your next score will be 4" 3/4.  do that on all 4 sides of your page.
after you did all scores, cut out all corners
You will have something like this. Fold your scores.
You can use corner punch, to make your flips round (but you don't have to do this)
all you need to do now, is to glue all together.

I find Zip Dry glue is the best, it's drys very fast and strong. I got mine from Wall-Mart. 
And now you have prefect envelope for your bulky cards. If you like you can also decorate your envelope to match your card

 And here is my card with gorgeous digital image "Kisme T" by Rick St. Dennis. You can find it at Etsy Shop.
 As you see here, i have some bulky Flowers on my Card, and my EnveloBox just prefect for it.

Look out for another tutorial, how to make 6"x6" Box from your 8"1/2x11" printer size cardstock. I like to know what do you think about this tutorial, and i hope this will help you to make your own EnveloBox.
