People have always been much more prone to sending Christmas cards than Happy New Year cards, so it's rare to see many good New Year card examples. It's even more rare when it comes to vintage Happy New Year cards. But for the hardy souls who don't mind addressing all those Christmas cards and then turning around and doing it again to send New Year greetings, I've included some beautiful vintage Happy New Year cards on this page. (Scroll down to see and download the New Years cards.)
Just download a New Year card to your computer and then print it directly onto a pre-cut and scored card. You can also print the New Year card artwork on a sheet of cardstock, cut it out and paste it on a separate card. Personally, I like to add glitter glue in small amounts, just enough to emphasize the highlights in the artwork.
For those who want to reduce their carbon footprint and not send New Year cards by mail, they can also be used as e-mail New Year greetings. They also make excellent components for holiday crafts and beautiful New Year clipart for blogs, Web sites, fliers and anything else you can think of.
