An normal hand made card can be made all the more special by attaching a 3D image.

Art and Craft Supplies

Blank card (available from craft & discount stores)
3D image sheet if making your own, or purchase a ready made one from a craft store
Paper or card to mount your 3D image on
Craft knife & cutting mat
Pencil & metal ruler
Double sided tape
Ribbon, stickers and any other embellishments you wish to use
Embossing tool & template (if you want to emboss the edges)


1. Assemble your card and embellishments together. This will give you a good idea as to whether everything will go together colour-wise. If you would like to see further instructions on how to make the 3D flower picture, please click on the following link:

2. Turn the paper or card your image is to be affixed to over to the wrong side. Place your image on to the paper and then draw and cut out a square for the image to be affixed to. I have done this with 2 pieces of card for a more layered effect.

Measure out a square from your card for the image to be affixed to

3. Stick the two square pieces of paper/card together with the double sided tape, and then affix the 3D image on top with more tape.

4. Before assembling everything on your card, emboss the edges with the pattern of your choice. For instructions on how to emboss a card, please refer to the following link:

5. Place all your embellishments on to the card to see how you would prefer them to be set out. It can be difficult to move these pieces once they are already stuck down with the tape, so it's best to play around with the layout at this stage.

Embellishments to be attached to card
By placing your embellishments on top of the card before sticking down, you can move them around to suit the layout you prefer

6. Stick down all the embellishments layer by layer. Firstly, stick down the ribbon with double sided tape - I have used two different ribbons on top of one another. The ribbon should be slightly longer than the length of the card so that the edges can be folded over to the inside of the card as per the picture below. If the edges have difficulty sticking down, use a tiny bit of glue and hold together with pegs until dried.

Then stick your 3D image on top and whatever else you think will enhance the look of your card. I had a tiny piece from some lace which I placed on top of the ribbon.

Embellishments to be attached to card
The ribbon should be slightly longer than the actual card so the edges can be folded over to the inside and be stuck down.

7. You now have a completed card which I'm sure will bring a smile to anyone who is lucky enough to receive it.
