Chinese New Year 2018 – Year of the Dog


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for all of my Chinese friends and co-workers this year. Unfortunately, the camera didn’t co-operate with me very well for taking the pictures of the card!!! I can see myself in the reflection!!! LOL!

 

For the front I used my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space to cut out the images for the sentiments. Compliments of CraftDirect free SVG file.

The dog is from Cricut Cartridge – A Quilted Christmas. I just trimmed off the ball in Cricut Design Space using the Slice tool before executing the actual cut using my Cricut Explore.

The lanterns were done using Craftin Desert Divas – Dragon Festival clear stamps, Versa Mark ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder.

On the inside of the card, I used Craftin Desert Divas – Dragon Festival clear stamps, Versa Mark ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder for the dragon and Recollections Valentine’s Day Clear Stamps and Die.

Sentiments – Craftin Desert Divas – Dragon Festival stamp set.

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone! Wishing you all joy, luck, good fortune and good health!!
