Today, I’m sharing the Chinese New Year cards using stamps called Safari Digital Stamp – PickledPotpourriDigi and Cute Tiger – AlexShopsArt. Every year, I enjoy make cards and sending them out to my friends here and overseas hoping to bring them some happiness in bringing in the New Year!
To make this card I first imported the images into Microsoft Word. I sized the tiger for the front of the card and created my sentiment and then added the “Cute Tiger” for the inside of the card. I printed out 8 copies of each onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in all of the images with Copic Markers and then I fussy cut around all of the tiger faces for the front of the card. The inside of the card was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug. The letters and numbers were cut using my Cricut Explore and Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold cardstock. I ran all of these through my Xyron Create a Sticker and my Xyron Creative Station.
To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Reds – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″) for my base. I placed the words and numbers onto the front of the card and added in the Tiger face in place of the “0”. I applied double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured images die-cut previously for the inside of the card and adhered it directly to the base.
Altogether, I made 8 individual cards this year.
