New  Home  Card  Ideas

Moving house ia a hugely stressful time for many people and there's nothing nicer than when you have finally got the keys to your new front door, opening the lovely moving home cards and gifts from all of your friends and loved ones. However when you buy a moving home card from a supermarket for a friend you can guarantee they'll probably get three as there isn't much choice.

Why not make your own new home cards instead?

New Home Card

Our Papermilldirect designer, Angela Dodson

A New Home Card
"I created a 5 ½ “square card base by scoring and folding papermilldirect Buff cardstock and positioned it to use in ‘tent position’. The sentiment of ‘A New Home’ was created in Cricut Design Space and sized to fit comfortably along the bottom of a 5 1/8” square of White Linen cardstock. I used the Cricut Explore to cut the correct size piece from the White Linen and the ‘attach’ function to ensure the writing remained as I had planned it in the preview screen. A Cricut pen in ‘Midnight’ was used to write the sentiment and it came out extremely clear and even on the Linen texture of the card. I then inked around the edges of the Linen panel using distress Ink in ‘Broken China’ which is a nice blue colour and just tones down the bright white at the edges helping to co-ordinate with the blue toned elements in the house design. The panel was matted onto a slightly larger square of Post Box Red and then positioned centrally onto the buff card front using double sided tape to adhere each layer."
