This new home card gives a 3d effect due to the curtains and window frame which sit prominent on the card. This new home card is not particularly difficult to make, but it is quite involved and intricate, so not the quickest greeting card to make.
Begin making your new home card by folding an A4 sheet of white card in half. I always use a bone tool and score board, but if you do not have one simply fold the card in half and press the folded edge down firmly.
You now need to find a garden picture to place behind your window. You can cut this from a magazine, or as I have done here, find a picture on the internet and print it. You need to make sure the picture can be trimmed down to the same size as the window frame and still look nice once it has been placed behind it.
Fold the scrapbook paper as you would if you were making a fan. Make sure the folds are just under 1cm wide. Aim for 5mm if you can so that when they are made into the curtains they do not stick out too much from the card which in turn will make it hard to fit in an envelope.
Attach the curtains to the window using an extra strong double sided tape. It is quite tricky so I would recommend placing a bit of tape on the back of the bow and a strip down the furthest panel of the window.
Mat and layer some wording for your new home card . Here I have used a verse that I printed from the Internet. You could also just put the words ‘ New Home’ or ‘Good luck In Your New Home’ if you prefer. Mount the wording onto the same scrapbook paper that you have used for the curtains, and the same piece you have used to cover the bottom of the card.
Use 3d foam to attach the wording to the middle of the section you have just covered with patterned paper.
