#3: Announce Home News

Whether you've recently called a new place "home" or you know someone else who has, a house is a great inspiration item.

We've Moved Card by Megan Hoeppner

We've Moved by Megan Hoeppner. Supplies Cardstock: Die Cuts With a View; Patterned paper and stickers: American Crafts; Brads: Adornit-Carolee's Creations and Bo-Bunny Press; Fabric: BasicGrey; Craft knife and punches: Fiskars Americas; Pens: EK Success; Adhesive: Glue Arts.

Here's how I put together this whimsical dwelling:

1. Make 5" x 5" card base from cardstock and use a square punch to create upstairs windows.

2. Trim and stitch bit of fabric to make curtains.

6. Outline window with a pen, affix stickers and attach brads.

Variation idea: Make a house card to welcome someone to the neighborhood or to congratulate someone on purchasing a new home.

Bonus Idea: If you need to update a lengthy list of contacts about your change of address, consider a photo postcard instead. It's a fast, yet personal way to spread the news. Photo postcard paper is available from Canon .
