Halloween witch decoupage

This free card making printable contains a square card front design that’s just smaller than 6×6 inches.

It’s about 5×5 inches wide and tall.

When you mount it to a 6×6 inch card front, it means that there will be enough space on the card for a bit of the card blank colour to show through.

You could even layer the card front onto a piece of coordinating card before attaching to your card front for an extra bit of decoration.

That’s what I did for my card – it’s got a thin border of silver pearly card around the edge to help distinguish it from the white scallop-edge card.

As you can see in the image above, this card making download contains a good selection of step-by-step layers for you to make a decoupage card.

If you’re new to decoupage, don’t fret – it’s really simple to make.

How to decoupage a handmade card

First, cut out all of the shapes on the card blank.

Some of the pieces are quite small so a a pair of decoupage scissors are recommended.

Westcott E-30440 00 4 inch Titanium Nitride Bonded Super Soft Grip Scissor, straight - Grey/Yellow
  • Soft Grip scissors Titanium Super, titanium nitride coating which resists the stickiness of tape and glue
  • stainless steel blades
  • colorful plastic handles
  • ergonomic shaped Soft Grip handles for very comfortable and precise working
  • 25 years warranty

For even more precision, try using a rotating knife craft blade.

I used one to help cut around the witch’s delicate fingers and around the ribbon on her hat.

Modelcraft Swivel Craft Knife - Pen Style 360° Cutter with 2 Spare Blades
  • Blade rotates 360 degrees, perfect for intricate cutting of curves and circles
  • Ideal for modelling, art and crafts
  • Easily cuts card, paper, film, stencils, thin foam, vellum, acetate
  • Features pen style handle with soft rubber grip for comfort and precision
  • Includes safety cap with pocket clip and two spare blades

Take some 3D foam pads and stick them to the backs of all the decoupage layers.

Starting with the largest shape, peel off the backs of the foam pads and then stick the topper onto the square card front, matching the edges of your cutout to the card design.

Repeat for the other cut out shapes, until finally you finish off with the smallest piece.

Adding the layers in this way will give you a wonderful 3D appearance to the card which helps the witch to ‘come alive’ on your Halloween card.

Decoupage is a fun card making technique and (apart from iris folding) is probably the one that I use most often when I’m making handmade cards for friends and family.
