Welcome in the new year with a 2016 greeting card

There's some incredibly beautiful examples of paper art out there, with sculptures, posters and campaigns all taking shape through the humble medium. Solidifying their love of paper art are French artists Robin Gillet and Estelle Philibert, who have created this beautiful 2016 greeting card.

"Paper art is DIY work we really enjoy to see and to make, because handmade creation is something that, as graphic designers, we really had to know," Gillet explains. "It's the kind of project we feel is more human than any project you can make using software."

Whilst new year cards aren't as popular as their festive predecessors, we have a feeling this one might just get you in mood for spreading the 2016 joy. Take a closer look at the detail below.
