My 2010 Holiday - "We've Moved" Card

I usually cheat and send out the holiday cards that I got as swaps over the past year. Yeah, that's right, what else am I supposed to do with them? I happen to think it's a great idea.

This year, since we moved, I decided to make a card. I purchased the Neighborhood Jumbo Wheel for the occasion. The house is water colored with my December Colors and "Merry Christmas" is embossed in white. To spruce it up I drew on lights and candles and a little wreath for the door that I cut out and glued on for a "little" dimension.  The inside has a printed reminder of my address and an update about my new home and job. A little too much work but I'm pleased with the results.

The card is 3.5 x 5 to fit some small envelopes that I am trying to use up.
