Yes, I'm a week late posting this Chinese New Year card I made... but in my defence, I wanted it to get to its destination before I posted it. And I may have hoped it would travel from my house to there in two days. Maybe not. :D Better late than never, here it is:
We are now in the Year of the Sheep! (It can also be the Year of the Goat; I don't have many goat stamps...) I was sure this sheep was holding a little gift, so thought it would be perfect for a not-very-traditional New Year's card. Of course, when I got the set out, it was the cow holding a gift, and the sheep had a cupcake. So I masked the sheep's front legs with washi tape before stamping and embossing her. I also stamped her on a post-it note so I had a mask for sponging the background. Then I stamped, embossed, coloured and fussy-cut the cow's front legs and adhered them to the sheep. I popped the present up just a bit with a double layer of glue dots for a hint of definition.
