Add the dimension of depth to your cards, really easily, using only pieces of cardboard!
Approximate Time: bit more than an hour
- blank sheets
- colors (pencils, crayons, pens, whatever :)
Note: It will probably help to make a rough sketch of the card before starting on it.
- Draw and color the different parts of the card on separate sheets of paper and cut them out. For example, I folded a blank sheet and colored it fully to make the background. I made the door frame, the girl, and the gift-box, on separate scraps of paper and cut them along their outlines. (This is the process that takes up most of the time).
- Take small pieces of cardboard and paste them on the back of the cut-outs with glue. I wanted the door frame to be above the girl and the gift box even more in front. So, I glued one piece of cardboard on the girl, two, on the door frame, and three, on the gift-box.
- Finally, paste the cut-outs on the card, and add whatever finishing touches you wanna add (like, I drew in, the shadow of Santa).
- And...it's done!
