Back to share my cards for Chinese New Year 2016.
I know I’m running a little late. I’m glad it goes for a whole month. LOL!
Used 2 types of paper for the fronts. The mirrored gold paper, unfortunately shows everything. But I still liked it.
Using Cricut Design space, I uploaded Marjorie Ann Designs \ Kristi w. Designs – Gone Bananas. All of the monkeys are from this pattern.
I created the type with Cricut Font – 3 Birds – Life’s a Party Cartridge.
I thought the little monkey face would go great in place of the “o” and the other little monkey replacing the “0” in 2016.
For the eyes, I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.
For the inside, I brought the wording into Microsoft Word and then pasted it 10 times on the paper before printing it out.
Then I used the cutting die from My Creative Time – Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More to frame the sentiment.
Lastly, I went around each frame with Sharpie – Medium Point Gold Water based paint.
I make 8 cards in total. There were a lot of little pieces and it took a long time, but I’m very happy on how they turned out.
Hope you are too!
