This year is the year of the pig for Chinese New Year. I just acquired Hello Bluebird’s Farmyard Little Bits and the pigs in the set are PERFECT for a Chinese New Year Card.
I stamped the pigs and flowers with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and used the following Copic markers: R32, R20, R11, R29, R35, R22, Y06, E33, Y08, W3, W2, RV21 and Prismacolor Pink PC929. The flowers were from Mama Elephant’s Lunar Extras Stamp Set.
I used Mama Elephant’s Grid Window Die and die cut it once in red card stock and 3 times in yellow card stock and adhered them together to create some dimension. I used the Chinese character stamp from Mama Elephant’s Lunar Extras and heat embossed the residual red card stock squares that came from cutting the red card stock with the Grid Window die with Simon Says Stamp Ultrafine Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I cut down squares of gold glitter card stock to place behind the windows. These red and gold squares will alternate and be placed in every other window in the grid.
I used MFT’s Stitched Numbers to die cut, “2019”, once out of yellow card stock and twice out of white 110lbs
I adhered the background square and grid to the card front, proceeded to pop up the pigs and flowers with 3M foam tape, and adhered the year in the centre of the card.
That finishes up by card. This card was entered into Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.
I know this is early but HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!
