Isn’t Corinne Bradd’s donkey decoupage greeting the cutest little pick-me-up? We can’t get enough of the technique at the moment, and Hunkydory’s latest Step Into Springtime Designer Deco-Large collection is packed with everything you would find in the most charming of farmyards and gardens, is just the set we need to reach higher crafting heights. Whip up a professional-quality card in a jiffy with this die-cut decoupage set containing plenty of motifs and sentiments, then let your recipient admire the finished 3D effect!
Decoupage is the art of using cut-out replicate layers to add depth and dimension to an image. Traditional decoupage involves manually cutting each element, or alternatively, die-cut decoupage is extremely popular, with everything supplied ready-cut. The Step Into Springtime Designer Deco-Large Collection is quite spectacular because the ‘jumbo’ style of this collection means that more detail can be seen, and the die-cut elements are easier to use than more intricate decoupage sets.
Layers are built up one by one, with each element of the scene on its own level. It’s very easy to make any design look three-dimensional by backing each section with small foam pads to raise it up off the previous layer. You can even emphasise special parts by adding more height, making it look like it’s coming towards the recipient more than other elements.
The fabulous Designer Deco-Large collection covers everything a crafter could want for springtime crafting, with a classic country cottage scene that evokes wonderful memories of warm spring days from times gone by and fresh new floral blooms. There are also wonderful kittens and collie dogs that are always so popular for cardmaking, plus Easter chicks and bunnies, delightful donkeys and iconic spring lambs!

• Fix pads onto the reverse of smaller shapes such as the chick, then stick to form the next layer
• Finish the card with individual sentiment pieces at the top and side of the card
