Mama Elephant/Hello Bluebird Chinese New Year Red Pockets

Chinese New Year is quickly approaching and I’m currently obsessed with making red pockets. I’ll give a quick overview on each red pocket. They were all cut with Mama Elephant’s Lucky Envelope Die and Stitched Gift Tag Die. I managed to make five different designs for this year!

Individual supplies will be listed under each pictures. Mama Elephant does have a line of Little Agenda Stamps and the size of those stamps would be perfect for these but unfortunately, it is the year of the pig and they don’t have any pig stamps that size. Hello Bluebird’s stamps set, Farmyard Little Bits was PERFECT to use!

I really love the Tonic Pearlescent Red Velvet Card Stock. It’s my first time using it and I bought it because I was looking for a red shimmery card stock and it was the only one I found! It’s 92lbs and it’s pearlescent on both sides!

That’s all from me today. I hope get some inspiration from some of my red pockets! I’ll be back shortly with my last Chinese New Year Card!!

Thanks for stopping by!
