We all love holiday cards, but this year has been a really, really tough one.
And to you who are reading this, I am extremely proud of the both us for surviving the many struggles of this year. I am sure that there have been many chances that we could have just simply given up but we did not. This may have not been our best year but it definitely put things into perspective.
To celebrate this achievement and share the spirit of hope for the new year that will come, here are 20 New Year Holiday Cards that you might want to give your family and friends.
IT’S BEEN A LOOOOOOOOONG YEAR by paperculture
Leave 2020 and welcome 2021 with a bit of laugh with this card which you can customize with a sentimental photo or an equally quirky and funny selfie.
MINIMALIST HOLIDAY CARD by minted
You can never go wrong with a minimalistic design. This card by the Johnsons for the holidays features drawn tree branches in a simple light gray backdrop. Of course, a cute and aesthetic photo of you or your kids or maybe the whole family adds a bit more personality to the design.
CHEERS! TO THE NEW YEAR! by pattystamps
Gift your champagne-holic friends with this champagne-inspired holiday card. This is definitely a very creative card with cutout style that can make any adult feel giddy and like a child again! (Well, at least for me, I’d be very excited!)
CUTE 2021 CARD by ablogcalledwanda
This is just too cute?! The chalk-like effect of “Happy New Year 2021” paired with a cute little drawing and a party hat design looks so nice and simple and also very personal while the sparkly gold drawing in the background and the gold accent that lines the card remind me of New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
HAPPY NEW YEAR IN BOLD BLUE by homemade gifts made easy
You can also try doing simple but bold designs like this one which you can use for other occasions as well by simply changing the content and switching the colors.
FLORAL NEW YEAR CARD by GirlThinksPrintables
This blue and violet leaf design in watercolor matched with a happy new year calligraphy is a perfect holiday card for your creative friends. It’s simple, clean, and looks very aesthetic aka instagrammable.
PERIODIC TABLE INSPIRED HOLIDAY CARD by theBirdandtheBeard
Be right back! Gifting this holiday card to all my science geek friends! (Witty cards are just the best!)
I’M SO DONE WITH 2020 by HAHACardz
Aren’t we all? So far, this is the funniest holiday card design on the list. Right? Also I’m hoping that’s not Olaf!
PLASH SOME SILVER AND GOLD HOLIDAY CARD by zazzle
Love how zazzle literally made a sparkly silver and gold card. Very fitting. Wit really is part of the design. Also, this design looks very tied up with the contrasting font styles and colors.
CHEERS TO 2021, ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN 2020 by divinelegacydesign
Yup, I definitely agree. But let’s not jinx it. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year. (PLEASE?)
2021 IS THE YEAR OF THE OX by ElenaArtBY
If you know your Chinese Zodiac signs then you would have easily figured out the fun in this design. 2021 is the Year of the Ox and what’s even funnier than an ox trying to hold a champagne glass, right?
THE CHINESE ZODIAC by freepik
This is the traditional design for the Year of the Ox that you can give out to friends who believe in Chinese Zodiac and feng shui. The design is very clean and the red font color for 2021 really makes it pop out of the design.
ABSTRACT HOLIDAY CARD DESIGN by zazzle
Sometimes it’s hard to actually pick out a design so you can just go ahead with abstract designs. But don’t think that abstract art is easy, it still takes creativity to make it look this good. Elegant and understated.
CIRCUS INSPIRED NEW YEAR HOLIDAY CARD by The Stationery Studio
I find designs like these very clever which use a theme and incorporate it as a font style. It also looks very clean, perfect for kids and adults who love the circus!
HAPPY NEW YEAR WITH GNOMES AND CHAMPAGNE?! by Mujka Chic
I guess this one’s not for the kids but the kids-at-heart who throw their troubles away by drinking champagne on New Year’s Eve. (Oh my, that kind of sounds like me…oops)
SEXY OX by zazzle
A sexy ox in an ornamental red frame. This might just be my favorite Ox-design New Year Holiday Card. There’s just so much personality in here! Is it still zazzle or sass-le? (Did you get it?)
MINIMAL MOD ORANGE TYPOGRAPHY by zazzle
HPEE AYWA PNYR? HAP PYN EWY EAR? (If you know, you know.)
This design looks kind of lazy but it works, right? After all, minimalistic aesthetic is still a trend and typography is a really cool design for cards.
PANTONE CHIP by Bohemian Woods
If you’re not much of a letter sender, then a postcard fits you very well. This design looks really nice and also very simply creative. Who would have thought of doing a postcard from a pantone color?
PHOTO COLLAGE DESIGN by papier
Do some photoshoots and plaster them all over your holiday cards for that very customized and personal feel. This style works perfectly for families sending their love to family and friends. Also, the photoshoot can be a perfect bonding time. That is if the kids really like taking one.
BOTANICAL VECTOR DESIGN by rawpixel
This design is very popular and is actually easy to recreate. You can do flowers or trees and vines or maybe add in some quirky elements like… Pokemon, maybe? Point is you can do whatever you’d like to do with this style!
