Create a simple 2015 New Year’s Garland with Plike Bordeaux

By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news—Marsala is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015. It’s a sudden change of pace from the light pinks and mint colors that have recently gained popularity, but I think this deep hue will fit right in. Not only am I already pairing it with the mints and pinks, but also with GOLD! With Plike Bordeaux from our Grandioso line, and a gold foil sheet, Kelly Paper has the perfect paper to let you play with this great combination.


Materials used:

  • Plike Bordeaux A2 Card – (SKU: 22013G, 25/pkg, $4.95)
  • Gold Foil 10PT 8.5 x 11 paper – (SKU: 55520A, 50/pkg, $21.99)
  • Black Ribbon


  1. Cut out “2015” in the font of your choice in gold. We used the font Ar Bonnie.
  2. Glue the numbers on the A2 cards.
  3. Punch and string the A2 cards.
  4. Hang up for all to see!

We have Plike Bordeaux available in a 8.5 x 11 cover sheet, 4 Bar, A2, A6, and A7 cards, and matching overlay cards in those sizes. The overlay cards are 1/4″ less all around to let you play around with layering. I look forward to seeing how you pair Plike Bordeaux or Marsala in 2015. Happy New Year!
