Happy Chinese New Year! 2017 is the Year of the Rooster- my year!
It wouldn't be new years without some handmade lucky envelopes for my kids, niece's & nephew!
I pulled out my favorite animal set to make these, Lunar Animals & Lunar Extras from Mama Elephant!
I originally intended for them to be much simplier, but it just wouldn't come together for me- so I created this sweet scene!
I used a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tag die and stamped the flower branch & rooster, colored with copics. I made the mini envelope using my envelope punch board and layered red glitter paper under the tag. It was still missing *something*... I die cut the flag (basic stitched flag) and stamped & gold embossed the, "Gong Hay Fat Choy" sentiment too look like a traditional New Years banner hanging from the tree branch! I finished them off with another rooster on the back mounted with foam tape so the flap of the envelope tucks under it.
Rooster: E23, E25, E27, B37, Y35, R37, R46
branches: E53, E55, E57, RV00, RV02, RV06, YG61, YG63, YG67
Wishing you all a Prosperous & Happy New Year!
