2009 New Year Handmade Greeting cards : templates and tutorial !

Has the rush for Christmas presents – handmade or else- and New Year celebration plans already begun in your house ?!

To keep up with the preparations for the upcoming New Year celebration, here are a few templates that I made for some handmade greeting cards (cards like these !). There are six templates :

– 2 square-shaped cards,

– 2 rectangle-shaped cards, those four with square windows, then

– 1 rectangle-shaped card with rectangular vertical windows, and at last

– 1 square-shaped card with round windows of different sizes.

Here they are : 2009 handmade New Year greeting cards templates

To use these templates, simply print the one you want to make a card out of, then cut out the windows and the outline of the card with a cutter (Xacto type) knife. Place this template on the paper you want to use for your card and draw the windows lines with a pencil. Cut those out carefully (if your paper is thick, don’t try to cut it in one go : applying too much strength on the blade of your cutter knife makes it difficult to cut straight and you may injure yourself. So keep it safe and pretty, cut once, then again if needed.)

The templates are only for the face of the card, so if you want a card that folds, don’t forget to include the fold before you cut the contour of your card !

If you want to give these cards a go, you can find a very simple tutorial I made for them a little while ago here, towards the end of the post.

I’m on my way to make some more !

Feel free to use the templates and make your own cards, so many variations are possible ! If you feel inspired to give these a try, let me know, I’ll be happy to see your take on them !

Have a beautiful day everyone !
