New Year 2012

This blog has moved to

Here's a simple New Year's card designed with only one cut on your Cricut machine and three rectangle cuts that can be done by hand.

Cut the New Year 2012 SVG file from black card stock. Cut one rectangle (by hand) at 2" x 3-3/4" that will be placed behind the words "NEW YEAR." Cut one rectangle (by hand) at 5" x 1-1/2" that will be placed behind the word "HAPPY," and one rectangle (by hand) at 8" x 5" that will show as the border and the color behind the "2012."

Use a glue stick to apply the colored rectangles in the proper position behind the words "HAPPY" and "NEW YEAR," and then to attach the entire assembly onto the large 8" x 5" colored background.

Fold an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of black card stock in half and glue the entire assembly onto the front of the card. There should be 1/4" black border on each side of the card. Finished card will fit into a standard 5-3/4" x 8-3/4" greeting card envelope.

One SVG file (newyear2012) is provided and can be downloaded below. The SVG file can be cut using the Sure Cuts A Lot software and a Cricut® cutting machine.
