Happy Chinese New Year series 1
This Saturday (Jan.28, 2017) is Chinese New Year. It is a important day for us. Normally I just prepared a big dinner for New Year Eve and talked with our family in China through the video. But this year I wanted to do more things. I with Belle decided to make a series cards to celebrate Chinese New Year.
I'm glad Mama Elephant has Chinese New Year and lunar year animals stamp set. I embossed all images that what I wanted to on my cards. And I used blick marker pen to color them. I add some shimmy to flowers and lanterns.
For card base I chose the red color because Chinese like to use red color for celebration. It shows happiness and good luck.
