Mama Elephant Lion Dance Chinese New Year Shaker Card

Here’s the second card in my Chinese New Year card series.


I wish more companies made Chinese New Year stamps! I would really like a background stamp of Chinese New Year related characters.

For this card, I repeated stamped/heat embossed, “Happy New Year”, and, “Congratulations and Wishing You Prosperity”, for the background, in Recollections Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder.

I used the Columbus Circle Creative Cuts to cut a shaker window and used some gold glitter cardstock for the inside of the shaker window.

I stamped two of the lions and the firecracker from Mama Elephant’s Lion Dance stamp set with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

I used the following Copic Colours:

Fire Cracker: R29, R35, Y06, Y11
Blue Lion: B39, B37, B34, Y17, Y15
Yellow Lion: Y38, Y06, Y08, Y17, Y15

I popped the lions and fire cracker onto the card with some 3M foam tape and brushed the lions with Clear Wink of Stella for more shimmer. The card was filled with a variety of confetti and sequin pieces that are not particular to any brand or sequin mix.


I don’t know what day of the challenge they’re on but I have also uploaded to the 30 Day Colouring Challenge that you can find here as well as, Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by!
