Can you believe Christmas has come and gone!? I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! We had a great time seeing family and really enjoyed watching our little one experience Christmas as a toddler.
This year was definitely my most “crafty” Christmas and it was wonderful watching my family members open their gifts and really appreciate the things I made for them. I really do love giving gifts! Having spent the past month and a half devoted to holiday crafting, it feels good to switch gears and work on new projects!
My first project for the New Year are these simple and elegant Happy New Year cards. They were a breeze to put together and I love the sparkle! I am always drawn to the glittery cards in the store, and I have been so inspired by the beautiful three-dimensional cards I’ve seen. I created three different designs in photoshop and then embellished them with lots of sparkle! The free printables will make this project go nice and quick!
- Free printables:
- A7 card and envelope
- Gold, silver, and glitter paper
- Rhinestones (from the scrapbook section)
- Hole punch, glue stick, and black pen
- Glue (not pictured) and cue tips
- Gold and silver glitter
Print out a design onto an A7 card using the free printable designs.
For the first design, card 1, punch circles from the glitter paper.
With the glue stick, glue your punched circles to each champagne glass.
Randomly stick the rhinestones onto the champagne glasses, overlapping the punched circles.
With a thin black pen, add a black bow to the stem of each glass! You can add some silver glitter to the stems of each glass too if you want even more sparkle! And then you are all finished!
For the other two designs, punch holes from the silver, gold, and glitter papers. Randomly glue them to the design. Add some of the rhinestones too! I overlapped some of the printed circles in some places.
You can use your glitter to add even more sparkle to the cards! I use a cue tip dipped in Elmer’s Glue to put the glue onto the card.
I love getting cards in the mail! While I didn’t send out a lot of these Happy New Year cards, I have a couple friends who live out of state that these are perfect for! Sometimes its just nice to get an old-fashioned card in your mailbox!
I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve! I’ll be back in 2015!!
Happy New Year!
