Chinese New Year is February 16th this year and it is the year of the DOG! In my house, the dog is always King but this year that's true everywhere.
Altered Pages has a lot of great Asian images available for your art projects. There is also a really pretty scrapbook paper design perfect for a Chinese New Year card which I backed with red card stock. The final size of the card is a 5 1/2" square.I chose several images that I liked. Since it's the year of the dog, I made sure to include one little image of that Chinese symbol, too. The little swirl charm reminds me of the Chinese Dog mask and adds a nice little bit of dimension and shine.
The Asian Ambience stamp set has this beautiful little fan which I stamped in VersaMark for a watermark effect on this scrap that was left over when I cut the card down to size.I included two different colors of Dew Drops and little drops of Stickles to the flower branch.
Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Now go spoil your dog!
