It’s hard to believe 2023 is just around the corner! Let’s celebrate with some new year cards.
I don’t send a lot of new year cards. But I like to have them on hand as last-minute replies to Christmas cards received and to use as thank-you notes. Stampin’ Up!’s Brightest Glow stamp set has the perfect “Happy New Year” sentiment.
I created three different cards with that same sentiment — two on this post and one last week. Click here to see the other design that uses the Cracker & Treat Box Dies and the Split Card Texture Dies. The Brightest Glow stamp set is currently available in Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Buy it now with the Labels Aglow Dies as a bundle and save 10 percent. Just a note: It will be carrying over and available next year.
About the Rays of Light Card
The card featured at the top of the post uses the Rays of Light stamp embossed with gold heat embossing as the background.
Very Vanilla card stock measuring 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ embossed in gold with Rays of Light
Black card stock measures 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
Very Vanilla card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″ embossed with Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder
Sentiment heat embossed with gold and die cut with circle from Labels Aglow Dies
The card below uses some brand-new product that will be available beginning January 5, 2023, in Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. The Alphabet A’ La Mode Dies include dies for a full alphabet and numbers. These are an exciting addition to the paper crafting product line up.
Be sure to watch the video to hear a discussion of these handmade new year cards. I just love the look of the gold heat embossing combined with the Gold Foil Sheets and black card stock.

Cracker Box for New Years
New Year’s Eve crackers are a popular party favor. Just like Christmas crackers, they’re decorated tubes filled with toys, trinkets, candy, confetti, and many times, tissue paper crowns. According to Google, the tradition of Christmas crackers began around the mid-1840s in the United Kingdom by a man named Tom Smith. He inserted love messages into the wrappers, similar to fortune cookies.
I started with a 6 x 6 sheet of Designer Series Paper and cut the entire die. But I used just one section to create the new year card for this blog hop. From this one die cut, you could make six cards!
You might be wondering what you would do with a new year card. I love to have some on hand to send after Christmas either as thank you notes or in reply to other cards I’ve received throughout the season.
Here’s how this card comes together:
Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock Base
Gold Foil layer measures 5 7/8″ x 5 3/8″
5 1/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla Cardstock die cut with the Split Card Textures Dies

Dragonfly Garden New Year Card
My creation features Stampin’ Up!’s Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, found in the Annual Catalog on page 23. I think this sentiment sums up my feelings perfectly: May Good Things Grow All Year Long. In addition, I threw in a sneak peek of the Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. (It’s a free product choice during Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration sale that starts Tuesday, January 4.) The pieces of Designer Series Paper measure 5 inches x 1 inch. I placed them equal distance apart on a Flirty Flamingo piece measuring 5 1/4 x 4 inches.
The above shows the inside of the card. The sentiment comes from the A Wish for Everything stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I stamped the flower image in Flirty Flamingo (stamped off twice) and added a scrap piece of the Designer Series Paper.
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest. You could win a free card kit.
Congratulations to last month’s winner: Jennifer Arent.
