Newton's Nook Designs May Release ~ Final Day


Welcome back for the third and last day of sneak peeks for the May release for Newton's Nook Designs.  Today Jen's sharing a mini set perfect for all kinds of occasions, from birthdays to anniversaries to New Years celebrations, even for pocket pages of visiting wineries or going wine tasting!  Introducing: ' Years for Cheers':


First I decide to make a card for my hubby for our next anniversary:

Anniversary card by Crafty Math Chick | Years for Cheers by Newton's Nook Designs

(my hubby prefers simple elegant cards so I didn't embellish beyond this, even though inside I was screaming to add glitter and rhinestones, LOL!  I hoe the little silver bow from Michaels $1 bin wasn't too much for a man!).

I have a confession - as hard as I try, I usually end up having a few holiday cards that just don't make it to the mail in time - we are a military family and we move a lot, our friends move a lot, and trying to keep up with all the address changes can be daunting.  So I always make a few 'Happy New Years!' cards for folks whose addresses I don't learn of in time.  This set is perfect for that:

Happy 2016 pink foil New Years card by Crafty Math Chick | Years for Cheers by Newton's Nook Designs

Since this one wasn't for hubby I decide to go a little flirty with pink and gold accents.  I sliced up some strips from this cool golf foil vellum from a DCWV stack that I LOVE and tacked it down onto some Blushing Bride cardstock (looks like embossing, doesn't it?) and stamped the numbers individually and punched them with a 1/2" punch (they fit perfectly!) and matted them in black with a 3/4" punch.  So, one down, a few more to go... the trick now is not to misplace it before December so I will have it when I need it (though I could always pop off the '6' and add a '7' in its place for the following year if I had to, right?).  So, which care was your favorite?

Love both cards! Making a New Year's card is such a great idea! I tend to forget to make cards for this holiday since Christmas card-making is so demanding. But that's a good idea to make a few throughout the year. TFS!

Love the color choices.
Black and white is always a show-stopper. The pink and black work well together also.

This is great! The first card is so elegant and I LOVE the idea of doing a new years card! I often say I should send new years cards because my christmas ones are late - LOL!
