Gatefold Card 3D Style

3D Decoupage Digital Image/Mailbox-  Created by Sherri Baldy

Hello Fellow Crafters,

I am excited today to share with you my fun play with this adorable Mailbox 3D Decoupage image created by Sherri Baldy. It is available for purchase here in the Scrapbook Stamp Society Store for your opportunity to play with and tweak to your creative liking. I had so much fun with it. I knew I had to get it when I saw it. I have this thing for mailboxes. It reminded me of a sweet friend I lost to illness. He gave me the cutest card with a bear putting a card in the most preciously decorated this one tugged at my heart.  

Below  is a picture of  how the 3D Decoupage Image comes. When I first saw them used on a card I thought they were beautiful and that was a picture. They are even more so in person...But I also thought what a fabulous colorist that did each of those card designs. How am I ever going to get that good and even cut and make into a 3D design.  Goodness...they come pre-colored. Someone did color it for us and all we have to do is cut, place adhesive foam tabs for dimension. You and the person that receive this are going to love it... they are paper art.  Mind you not everyone will get one because I consider them precious keepsakes made with tender loving care.   Here is what this one looked like when I purchased and printed it. 
Here is a side view of the 3D dimension. I also gave the frame a Spellbinders Nestabilities Stately Circle die  a 3D effect by cut 2 extra framing them out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle. Giving the frame the 3d effect was alot of work cutting little tiny adhesive foam tabs and coloring them red so you would not see them but the love of making it was worth it at the end.

 I wanted to make a special Christmas card and My Besties 3D Challenge Blog tickled my creativity to go with creating something with more than 1 fold so the card style I chose to showcase My Besties Mailbox 3D image in is on a Gatefold style card. I invite you to check out their Blog. Their Design Team share some amazing and beautiful 3D creations. Here is a Youtube video in case you want to try this Gatefold style card. I hope you look into trying these 3D Decoupage images. I find them relaxing and a way to soothe my thoughts as I dream up all the ways I am going to decorate and design my paper project.
