These are cards and holder I made for the homeowner getting her house dedicated on Saturday with Habitat for Humanity. I’m a Team Leader on her house so have become quite close to her. The yellow, blue, and red cards are for the mom, Brenda. The pink and green ones are for her 16 y.o. dd (she thinks it’s shabby chic). I added pink and white polka dot ribbon on the other card because I couldn’t decide which I liked best. The black and taupe ones are for her 15 y.o. ds (he wants Feng Shui–and that seemed linier in my mind). The kids are going to decorate their bedrooms in the colors of the cards. Brenda never said how she’s decorating her’s. I printed the inside off the computer. It says: We’ve moved! Our new address is: The address, and Please stop in and say Hi soon! They are relatively simple cards, but I think she’ll be touched that I knew her address and remembered how she said her kids would decorate their rooms. She told me that early in the build-cycle of her house (8 weeks ago, we’ve been building 10).
I made my template out of a manilla folder. I added two blue eyelets in the back and then used white elastic cord as the closure. It holds all six cards, no envies. I'm uploading a close up of the cards

Oh my gosh -- the holders are very nice, as are the cards, but I can't believe how nice and sweet you are to make these for this family -- I bet they will just be overjoyed to receive them -- how kind and thoughtful of you -- it brings tears to my eyes!!!
