{ we're moving }

Hello,

So, have you heard the exciting news? We're buying a house this month! What's the first thing you do when you find out you're moving? Make cards, of course! I made 30 of these cards to announce our move and let our friends & relatives know our new address and phone number.

I love the neat design of this card. It's called a Z-Fold card. As you can see I used the cuttlebug for most of this card. The entire card base was put through the cuttlebug with a Big Shot embossing plate. The scalloped rectangle and circle were cut out and the rectangle was also embossed using my new nestabilities dies. You can get the nestabilities from Urban Trends if you're in the Abbotsford area. I LOVE these! It's a really economical way to get scalloped and straight edged shapes in a bunch of different sizes and they take up WAY less space than punches.

The "Our New Home" tag was cut out using a cuttlebug die. The house image on this card is from Stamping Bella and was purchased from Urban Trends. I colored it in with Stampin' Up! markers.

Don't forget to read the post below this one... Nancy and I are hosting a weekly paper crafting challenge and we'd love for you to participate! We have a really fun one up our sleeves for next Monday as well. I'll give you a hint... it's not going to be a sketch challenge.

PS. If you have any moving boxes I'd love to take them off your hands.
