DIY Congratulations on New Home cardMaterials: 

  • Recollections Value Pack cards and envelopes in “Kraft” [Michaels]
  • Printer with black ink
  • Recollections Basic Bold 12″x12″ paper pad [Michaels]
  • Black fine point pen (chimney smoke and doorknob)
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • Black fine point pen (chimney smoke and doorknob)
  • pencil, eraser, scissors, ruler

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • When I design a new card in Microsoft Word, I always print on regular paper first before the actual card stock – to check if everything is centered and I am feeding the paper in the right way (trim paper to the size of the card you’re making)
  • I also make the shapes first on regular paper (not decorative) then trace onto backs of decorative paper with pencil before cutting out. For this card I traced the roof and body of the house (triangle and square.) I winged it with the chimney and door
  • If I made this card again, I would leave the doorknob off. I don’t like it a much as I thought I might

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • So proud of you
    • Congratulations again
    • Enjoy your space
    • Can’t wait to visit


  • If my post inspires you, and you blog about it, I ask that you credit me! Also, I’d love to see it!

Want it?

  • This card is available for purchase on my etsy store:
