DIY New Year Card SVG Templates

New year card and new year birthday card SVG templatesTemplates for New Year 2023 card and New Year Birthday card

I've created two new card templates for you to celebrate the new year...

The first is a 'Happy New Year 2023' card template, a very happy and celebratory card to welcome in the new year to friends and family - and to hope that 2023 will be a great year!

The second is a 'Happy New Year Birthday' card template - and it's for sending to just those very special people who have their birthdays at the New Year - I have a family member who celebrates their birthday on 1st January each year.

Just like for my special Christmas birthday card templates, I think that a new year birthday deserves something a little special - not just a Happy New Year card and not just a Happy Birthday card - but both together!

I'll take a little look at both below - but first, a couple more things you need to know about both card templates...

Both the card templates are 'cut and score' projects - this means that as well as cutting out the template with your cutting machine, you will also need to score the fold lines for the card and envelope.

You can do this with your cutting machine (most do have the function) or you can do it manually if you prefer. If you are a Cricut user, I have full instructions for setting up the line to score in Cricut Design Space - find that here - I also discuss scoring manually on that page.

If you use another type of machine, you will likely also find the page useful for understanding the steps you will need to follow in your own machine programme to get the score line correctly.

Once you've got the card all cut and scored, I have a craft tutorial for you to help you fold and assemble the card - you can follow that here...

Let's now take a closer look at the 'Happy New Year 2023' card template (right below) - the 'Happy New Year Birthday' card will follow on after that...

Happy New Year Card Template 2023

I made the 'Happy New Year' card template very bright and cheerful in a bold yellow with a red inner card and orange envelope (these are the colours that are included in your template) - I think that these are fun and happy colours that have a celebratory feel and hopefully will get the new year off to a happy and fresh start!

As an alternative, I created the card in a fresh green with a lemon inner card and bright yellow envelope - my thinking was a bit the same with choosing happy and fresh colours that give the idea of a fresh start...

There's lots of other colours that you could choose for your new year card template - anything bright and cheerful is perfect! Do try and get some contrast between the outer card (with the cut-out design) and the inner card, so that the design stands out well.

You could make the inner card white or black - or keep the outer card neutral and choose bright colours for the inner card instead - it's up to you!

I think a gold card would be very celebratory too - beautiful and sparkling - so this might be a really good choice for your DIY new year card project...

Happy New Year Birthday Card Template

A card for those lucky people who have a New Year Birthday - they deserve a special celebration for sharing their birthday with such a special occasion!

I made the New Year Birthday card template in a bold yellow, teamed up with a blue inner card and a red envelope - yellow is such a happy colour that I thought it was the perfect colour to start the year with - that's the new calendar year and the personal birthday year, too. The dark blue inner card stands out really well against it, which allows the design to stand out well and the message to show well. The red envelope is a bit of fun! This is the colour that comes in the template.

The other colour idea I created for this card is a more feminine look - I chose a pretty salmon pink and teamed it up with a dark blue inner card and a soft blue envelope for a contemporary, cheerful and feminine style.

Because this is primarily a birthday card, choose any colours you think the birthday boy or girl would like - from delicate pastels, to simple neutrals, bold black, or colourful brights - as always, do try and bear in mind to get lots of contrast between the outer and inner card - this is just to allow the design to stand out well.

I do always like to add a fun third colour to the envelope - but if you want to keep it similar to the main card (or inner card), or go for a neutral like white, that works beautifully well too.

If you use a dark inner card like these, make sure you have a pen that will write well on these dark colours - a white or silver gel or paint pen is my choice.

I hope my colour ideas will help to get you started! You can also take a look at the colour ideas for the Happy New Year card, too, if you need more inspiration.

Please remember that there are two card designs - they are slightly different (one is to celebrate a new year birthday), so please double-check that you have selected the correct one before you buy it - due to the nature of the digital downloads, if you've already downloaded the file before you realise you've made a mistake, I won't be able to refund you...
