Happy New Year creative friends!!
May 2021 be the year that we are all hoping for…. one that is filled with good health for all and a return to something that resembles our ‘old normal’.
I intend to approach this year with a positive attitude, while remaining safe and observing the guidelines laid down for us where I live.
With this in mind, when I was designing my new year long printable project to share here throughout 2021, the positivity theme really resonated with me….. so, I decided to call it ‘A Year of Positivity’ project.
Last years ‘A Year of Vintage Postcards’ year long project was very popular with my readers and I knew that I wanted to to continue with a similar project for 2021.
The Positivity project will be presented each month as a two page printable PDF file, containing two, 9 cm x 14 cm cards and one matching envelope.
Each of the cards will contain a positive and inspirational quote and will be designed using a combination of vintage graphics, mixed media and original watercolour artwork…. making then completely unique and not available anywhere else.
Best of all…. this year long project is completely FREE for you to download and use!
January Positivity Project
I’m kicking off 2021 with pretty pink and green themed cards and a matching striped and floral envelope.
The cards would be best printed on matte photo paper cardstock, while the envelope should be printed on matte photo paper.
Always remember to adjust your printer settings to print at its highest/best option for optimal results.
How to use the free printable cards
These cards measure 9 cm x 14 cm (3.5” x 5.5”), so are a perfect size to be used in many ways:
Add some pretty ribbon and use as a gift tag
post them to a friend as ‘happy mail’
use them as journal cards in a junk journal
use them in a yearly planner or art journal.

I actually found some “matte” type cardstock in my stash (not sure where I acquired it) and I printed out 3 of these sets of lovely old-fashioned cards to share with my Mom and SIL. They are really cheery for 2021. Just my “cup of tea”! I do so appreciate your lovely art work and have enjoyed it all 2020. Thank you so much.
JE VOUS SOUHAITE UNE BELLE ANNEE

So pretty and I loved the designs. I wanted to send as a post card to my friend who loves to go to tea with me. Sadly they printed out very faint on my printer. All other color printed projects come out ok and all my ink cartridges are full. Any suggestions for getting more defined colors?
Thanks so much for providing these pretty cards with a nod to nostalgia.
I’m sorry you experienced an issue. As you can see from the ones I printed, these are certainly not pastel designs. I always suggest in my printables posts that you should be printing on matte photo paper or coated paper for the best results. This is because normal paper absorbs the ink and gives an inferior quality. Also, just as important is the need to adjust your printer settings. Standard settings are set up for basic copy paper printing, so you need to adjust your printer preferences to photo paper and set at highest or best print option. Hope this helps you 🙂
