Congratulations/New Home Card


new home hillside

Here is the card that I sent to my neighbor who just moved away. (Irene, if you haven’t gotten this, check your mailbox!)

I used a Koh-I-Noor French Curve template from my (old!) Engineering Graphics supply pouch to create the curves that became the rolling hills.

  1. On my goodness, I have something similar from my quilting days! Will totally have to dust that off. Thanks for sharing your cute card.

  2. It also has dressmaking applications.

    • Terry, I pull the curve out every month or so and use it. Some of the paper craft companies are selling dies to cut the same curve. I think my solution is cheaper. (If I needed to mass produce a card with a curved landscape, I can see the value of a die.)
