New Year’s Resolution Cards


Hi, Jessica from BrownPaperBunny here. With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, there are lots of parties being planned and resolutions being made. So why not combine the two?! Set up a table at your party or get-together with these cute New Year’s Resolution Cards so people can write theirs down and mail to themselves (so it doesn’t get lost in all the merriment). Here’s what you’ll need to get started.

Supplies:

Step 1: Create a Watercolor Background

Scribble some ink onto your XL Blending Palette using your favorite color Dual Brush Pen. Then spritz the ink with water and lay your piece of watercolor paper down on top of the ink. Carefully pull it off and leave it ink-side-up to dry. You can watch a video of this technique over on Tombow’s Instagram account.

Step 2: Cut Out Your New Year’s Resolution Cards

Once your watercolor-look paper is dry, you can either repeat the process on the back, or leave it white. Then cut your paper up into any size cards you’d like, just be sure they fit into the envelopes you have.

Step 3: Write on the Front

Use your Fudenosuke Colors Brush Pens to write on the front of the cards. You can write ‘My 2019 Resolutions’ like I have, or come up with something different. Leave the 2019 blank, or just in pencil, ready for the next step.

 

Step 4: Add the Glitter!

Use your MONO Aqua Liquid Glue to write 2019, then sprinkle some glitter over the glue. Wait until it has dried completely before you shake and brush off any excess glitter.

Step 5: Draw Lines on the Back

Once the glue on the front is completely dry, turn the cards over and use the small end of your Dual Brush Pen and a ruler to draw lines on the back. This will make it easier for people to write their resolutions.

Step 6: Set up a Resolutions Table

Now you’re ready to set up a resolutions table at your party! Stock it with your New Year’s resolution cards, envelopes, cute stamps, and pens. If you have some extra time, wrap a shoebox in gift-wrap, and cut a slot in the top for people to put their sealed envelopes. The next day, after a sleep-in and you have suitably recovered from all the party merriment, mail off the cards to everyone.
