How to make New Year’s Cards

If you’re looking for a fun way to send your holiday and New Year’s greetings to friends and family this year, I’ve got a fun idea for you! Print these coloring sheets on cardstock, color them in, add personalized messages and you will have an awesome DIY New Year’s card.

You could even let your kids do the coloring, while you add the messages, stamps, addresses, and envelopes, and make it a fun holiday activity to do together.

Materials needed for the cards

  • Free printables
    • These are in landscape orientation with the coloring sheet only covering half the page, so you can easily fold them into a card
  • Printer
    • With black and white ink
  • Crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint, glitter, or whatever you want to use to color the cards and pages in

Different card options

Now, there are three different ways to turn these coloring sheets into cards. I have explained each of them below. They all come with their own benefits and cons, so I’ll leave it up to you to pick whichever suits you best.

Option 1: Print the foldable sheets on regular paper

This is the easiest way to make your own color-in New Year’s card.

All you need are the free foldable printables, and a printer with black and white ink. Once you’ve finished coloring the sheets, you simply fold them in half, write a message on the inside and you’re done.

Pros
  • Super easy to make
  • You don’t need any additional material or a special printer
Cons
  • Doesn’t feel like a real card
  • Doesn’t stand up
  • Doesn’t look as pretty as cardstock

Option 2: Print foldable sheets on cardstock paper

If you already have white cardstock paper (slightly thicker and sturdier than regular paper, making it perfect for greeting cards), and your printer can handle this sturdy paper, I would highly recommend you print the foldable design directly onto the cardstock.

In my opinion, this is the prettiest option of all three.

Pros
  • Looks like a real greeting card
  • Feels like a real card
  • It can stand up straight
Cons
  • Not every printer can print on cardstock
  • You need to have white cardstock
  • Coloring on cardstock is slightly different from coloring on regular paper

Option 3: Print foldable sheets on regular paper and glue onto cardstock

Personally, I think this is the second to the best option. First, you print the foldable pages on regular paper, then you color them in, cut them in half, and stick them onto a piece of cardstock that you have folded into half.

This way you still have the sturdiness of cardstock and the touch and look of a real greeting card, but you don’t need to print and draw straight onto it.

Pros
  • No special printer is needed
  • Feels like a real card
  • It can stand up straight
  • Coloring on regular paper
Cons
  • You still need to have cardstock
  • Cutting and gluing will make it look slightly less pretty
