Moving Announcements

This has been one fast moving month. Weddings, funerals, loss of job, temporary job, car repairs, packing, finding a new home, moving, comforting confused kitties, etc.

Needless to say, I needed some sort of creative outlet.

My paints have all been packed away, I decided it was time to return to the realm of graphic design and whip up some moving announcements. I have had good luck using Vistaprint in the past to print photo books and decided to use their services again to print the cards I designed. I really like that they let you use your own designs (rather than just choose from pre-set options), not to mention the quality has always been great and the price can’t be beat 😉

I used MS Paint to free-hand and upload the design. Image

 

The text was modeled after other Word Art cards I have seen in the past. Simple and sweet.

The final touch was an address stamp added to the envelope. Jessica from Twisty Twig designed it and was kind enough to rush order it to make sure we received it in time. We don’t know exactly where the next few years will take us, but we know we will be staying in North Carolina and thought this was fitting 🙂Image

 

I might try to take on design projects more often in the future – it was a really fun project 🙂
