Clean & Simple New Year Card with Cheers to the Year Stamp Set

Every year I bet at least one person you know said they didn’t have time to get their Christmas cards out and will have to send New Year cards instead. It even happens to us cardmakers. If you find yourself in that situation, I have good news. Watch to see how to make my clean and simple New card with the Stampin’ Up! Cheers to the Year Stamp Set. It’s so quick and easy to make, you can even make them after Christmas and still have time to get them mailed before New Year’s Day!

This also happens: you promise yourself to get your Christmas cards made early this year, and you did. You also got them addressed and in the mail. Yeah, You! Then on Christmas Eve, you receive a Christmas card or two from someone you hadn’t sent a card. Now you have a quick and easy New Year card you can make and get in the mail before New Year’s Day gets here! 

But, only if you have the Cheers to the Year Stamp Set. 🙂

Did you not make Christmas cards just in case the Mayan calendar was right?


Did you not make Christmas cards just in case the Mayan calendar was right?  When we are all still here on December 22, it will be too late to order the stamping supplies, make your handmade Christmas cards and get them in the mail to be received by December 24.


So, now it is time for your back-up plan.  You do have time to order the stamping supplies, receive your order and make New Year's cards because you know you will receive a bunch of Christmas cards.  Stampin' Up! has the perfect stamp so you can!    It is the limited-edition New Years single stamp.




Now this card is a celebration of style!  It captures all the glamour and elements of a great New Year's Eve celebration with the glitz of the silver and gold set off by the elegance of the black.




The scallop edges were created using the Large Scallop Edgelits Die in the Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.   Because you place the Edgelits Die on your card stock, you can place it exactly where you want it.  Centering it so the partial scallops are the same on each end is easy.   And we all love easy, especially when it produces beautiful results.




Each scallop is adorned with a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.  The self-adhesive Rhinestone Jewels are the perfect adornment for my New Years card. 


The Stampin' Up! New Years stamp is only $6.95 in my online store.  And, it is only available until January 2, 2013. 


But, if you want to celebrate the Mayans stopped with the calendar too early, or even better, wish friends and loved ones a Happy New Year, you need to order the New Years stamp now.


Here is a list of the supplies you will need to make my Happy New Years card:
