For two decades, I have been making “holiday cartes d’ arte”. Check out some past ones below:
Personalized New Year Wish Card
print the pdf version of the NewYearWishCard (use card stock, preferably)
fill in 3 nouns of your choice (for what you wish your year will be full of)
cut out and place in your wallet
throughout the year, take out the card occasionally to check and see if your wishes are coming true!
