This can even still be sent to wish someone a Happy New Year. The card is blank inside, they all are, which I prefer to put my own heartfelt message to someone which you can do with this card to say Happy New Year.

This is my favorite card out of the lot, they’re all great, but something about this just draws me to it. It’s texturized and is almost like a postcard. It’s a great way to send a little note to a bestie.
