Hello there! 2019 is just around the corner, and today I’m here to share my first ever New Year cards with you. Yes, I said it! I’ve never made New Year greeting cards before, but when I received the new American Crafts All the Holidays cardmaking sticker book* and combined it with a few papers and embellishments, it was the perfect opportunity to change that!
Supplies | All the Holidays cardmaking sticker book, Vicki Boutin sticker book, Field Notes collection chipboard stickers, Field Notes collection washi tape, Bling sticker rhinestones, Shine On 6x6 paper pad, Shine On Forest paper, AC primaries cardstock
I fell in love with the large black and silver circle stickers that say, “Happy New Year!” and I decided to create a trio of cards to give to friends to wish them a happy new year.
My first two cards were created using the smaller silver, “Happy New Year!” stickers, and started off by layering colorful cardstock with neutral patterned paper from the Amy Tangerine Shine On collection. From there, I chose the colorful watercolor Field Notes collection washi tape, which set my color scheme for my three cards—purple, pink, orange, yellow and green.
The Vicki Boutin sticker book, my favorite sticker book in my growing collection, helped me to embellish with the year in colorful numbers, stars and arrows that say, “create magic,” and “time for some fun.” New Year cards wouldn’t be complete without some bling, so I added a few pink, purple and silver Bling sticker rhinestones.
I wanted to use the largest, “Happy New Year” circle for my third card, and with a sentiment so large, not much else was needed on the card. The colorful watercolor Field Notes collection washi tape created the perfect background, and after the sentiment sticker was added with dimensional adhesive, I added the large rhinestones to complete this quick and simple, but festive card.
You can find all of the products that I used to create these cards in the gallery below—it’s still a new year for as long as it takes to remember to write “2019,” so order today to send your own handmade new year greetings!
I’m excited to send these cards off to wish my loved ones a happy new year! I’d like to say the same to you, my lovely blog readers. I am wishing each and every one of you the best that life can bring in 2019! Happy creating!
