This is a really fun homemade birthday card for a typical teenage boy of today. Yes, you guessed it, playing a console game. It uses very little materials from your card making supplies so is also relatively cheap to make.
The decoupage image is of a boy playing a video game and is in fact a pyramid decoupage. Pyramid decoupage or ‘piramarge’ are the easiest decoupage sheets to put together as they consist of straight edges.
Even if you are a novice card maker or completely new to card making this greeting card is so easy to make as there are no frustrating small parts to cut out. If you need, or want to know more about decoupage please read this article on decoupage prints and ideas.
The usual process of using 3d foam is used to mount one image on top of the other. Starting with the largest image first, work your way through the images, placing one on top of the other, and gradually working down to the smallest image.
This decoupage image is now going to become the focal point of your greeting card and will be used as the main topper/embellishment.
Place some large brads in the gap on the left hand side, using colours that match your decoupage image.
Place the entire panel onto a piece of A4 card that has been folded in half and the card is finished.
You can of course personalise your greeting card by adding the name of the recipient, or maybe a caption of what their favourite video game is. Here I have just placed a simple set of brads in the left hand side; however you could use this space to add a personal message to your greeting card.
