How to Make a New Year Card: Celebrate The Year To Come!

Once all the festivities of Christmas itself have passed, there’s still plenty to celebrate… at Create and Craft we love to embrace ANY excuse to get crafting! Which is why we’re firm believers that season’s greetings needn’t be reserved for Christmas Day alone. Check out the gorgeous Happy New Year card below, and discover how to easily add wintry style to a handmade New Year’s card, and embrace the excitement of celebrating what’s to come!

You Will Need:

Design Tip:

Experiment with different font styles to create your message; you could choose a stamped sentiment, a handwritten one, or computer journaling to add your text.

Step 1:

Select the patterned papers you’d like to work with to add colour and interest to the front of your card. You could print these out from a CD-ROM, or choose some coordinating sheets from a paper pad… check your crafty stash and see what you have to hand!

Happy New Year Card Step 1

Step 2:

Fold a single sheet of kraft card to form a 15cm x 21cm card base. Next, cut a strip of one of your patterned sheets of paper and mount onto white, then green card. Once complete, glue this strip vertically to the front of the kraft card. Wrap green ribbon around the front of the card, as shown.

Step 3:

Cut another strip of green printed paper and mat onto white, then green card. Glue this horizontally across the card front, slipping underneath the ribbon.

Step 4:

Place the snowflake die atop white card, secure with repositionable tape, and die cut.

Step 5:

Glue the snowflake to the card front, and add the rhinestones for a touch of eye-catching sparkle.

Step 6:

Computer journal your message onto white card, then mount this onto green card, and glue to the card front as shown. For a pretty finishing touch add a bow tied in green ribbon.

Ta-da! A stunning New Year card that oozes winter charm!
