Summer is peak moving season. After moving last winter in 8 inches of snow and again this summer, I can definitely see why most people in their right minds choose summer over winter to move! So just under the wire before summer wraps up, this month’s card of the month is a change of address card. (It’s also this month’s card because I finally got around to finishing and mailing my change of address cards!)
We chose a light blue background because we liked the color – it’s actually about the same color as our new art room. So I started with an 8.5″ X 5.5″ piece of light blue card stock folded in half. I stamped little houses with a Stampin’ Up stamp and colored them brown to match our new house. I punched them out with a coordinating Stampin’ Up arrow punch. Then I cut squares out of brown card stock and stamped them with another Stampin’ Up stamp that says “handle with care” to make them look like moving boxes. I glued the punched out houses peeking out the tops. I taped a bit of leftover tissue paper from our move to the back of each box. I attached the whole thing to the front of the card with pop up dots and added a “We’ve moved” printed label. I then included our new address on the inside. And the best part is I managed to finish them and get them in the mail before the end of summer!
