Change of Address Cards by Sarah May

posted in: Blog, Sarah May | 0

Hi everyone, Sarah’s turn on the blog today – I’m using it to share with you the card design I came up with to let mine and my husband’s extended family know ‘we have moved’. It was good practice at batch-making ahead of Christmas cards!

 

Arrow-House-Card-1

  1. Usually I buy pre-made card blanks but I wanted these to be dinky and smaller than any blanks I had to hand so I made my own to fit little square brown paper envelopes (actually wage packets that I picked up in a stationery shop!). Measure the envelope, cut kraft card to be a few mm smaller on each edge to leave wiggle room for getting it in and out, score down the middle and fold.
  2. Lay out 4 arrow stamps on an acrylic block and build up a repeat pattern across the front of your card stamping in your 1stcolour of ink, cleaning off your stamps then stamping beside and below in the 2ndcolour, beside and below each of those in the 3rdcolour, then back to your 1st.
  3. Diecut a house shape from the middle of the card front, and glue it inside through the window left by the cut.
