Year of the Rat – 2020

Hi Everyone! I’m sharing the card that I made this year, for the year of the Rat, for all of my Chinese friends and fellow co-workers. I couldn’t resist this adorable little mouse from Mouse Bites (Jaded Blossom). For me it is a very special year, since I myself am a Metal Rat! YAY! I wish for everyone to have a healthy, prosperous and very happy year ahead!

Just showing a few here. I made 12 of them in total.  Decided to keep the design for this card very simple this year. There is also a little rat on the inside of the card as well. I used Google Translate to enter my sentiments on the inside.

My friends tell me that gold and red are very important in the Chinese culture. So this year, I used Red – Recollections Christmas cards for my base and then multiple stamps from Jaded Blossom for the main images and sentiments. Using my MISTI to get a nice clean image, I stamped the images with VersaMark and then embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder – Gold. Then I used a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to heat up the embossing powder. The final result is what you see above.

Year of the Rooster – 2017

Happy Chinese New Year 2017!

Sharing the card that I made for some friends and co-workers this year.




To create this card I imported the image from: Cricut Cartridge – Wall Decor and More: Rooster #M4683B and  #M41A33.

I uploaded the images into Cricut Design Space and then cut with my Cricut Explore.

I used a mixture of stamps from Jaded Blossom (Chinese New Year) and Craftin Desert Diva’s (Dragon Festival) for the front and inside of the card.

Stamped using Versamark and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder.

Hope you like it!
