This year, we thought we’d be extra efficient (or lazy!) and send out our (loooong overdue) moving announcement as our Holiday card. I loved the idea of a little red Fiat with an oversized tree strapped to the top of it, as it reminded me of the cute, little ride we saw outside MERCI in Paris this spring. I looked high and low, but couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I decided to source the images and design one myself!
I compiled the graphics and text in Adobe Illustrator (Powerpoint would work too!) and then had them printed at my local printer. Sadly, I had to blur out our street address which kind of ruins the look of the card, but you see, it’s the internet, and so privacy measures are a must! Here were my sources for the cards:
- Shutterstock Vector Images: Fiat & Tree
- Cursive Font: Little Days (free!)
- Paper: 100 lb Bright White Cardstock, Cut to the 5″ x 7″ size
- Envelopes: Papersource, A7 Envelopes in Lake
Update: A few people have asked for card file without the personal information, so I’ve uploaded it HERE. Feel free to download and add your personal touches in Illustrator or Powerpoint!
