Now, about my project. Monday, is the beginning of the new year. That is Chinese New Year. And this upcoming new year will be the YEAR OF THE DRAGON! I teach kindergarten in a wonderful school and we have a huge celebration every year for Chinese New Year. And the celebration includes a parade. We have been working for days making things for our celebration. Come back in a few days, and I will have photos posted of the big event.
Thinking of Chinese New Year was my inspiration for the card.
I used the Cricut PAGODA cartridge for the teapot, cup and fan. I love this cartridge, but I do not use it enough. I plan to keep it out and use it more. All of the cuts on it are so pretty and can be used in many ways. The paper I used is from a new K & Company stack I got after Christmas. The gems are also new. They are iridescent and are from Recollections. The colors can change depending on how the light is shining on them.
The sentiment is from the Coffee and Tea for You and Me stamps set from K Andrew Designs. These stamps also are new. I got them right before Christmas. I have used them on several occasions and Love them. I used a gold metallic ink pad for inking around the mats and cuts on the card. And I used black ink for the sentiment and inking its mat.
