Chinese New Year Child's Card

Good morning everyone! It is Sunday... I can't believe how quickly the weekend goes by! It is here and then it is gone! And tomorrow it is back to work already. I don't even feel like I got a break! Tonight, Bailey comes home from camp and I'm pretty sure Michael works this afternoon, but I'm not sure what time. I received my first request on Etsy for a Valentine's card this morning. So, today I will be working hard to get that finished. I'll make that one and ship it out with the other one she bought. So excited! All the work I'm putting into Etsy is definitely paying off :)  Yay!

Here is my 2nd custom ordered Chinese New Year Card. This one is for the baby daughter :)

I used all scrap paper. I cut the black wth the Silhouette Cameo. I added some twine and some dew drops. The little monkey was a free coloring image found online that I printed and colored with Copic Markers. I did pop his little head up and put it on a wobble. I thought... what is better for a small child than a wobble! :D  I stamped the Happy New Year and attached it with a black brad. And that is it! I was able to use all scraps for both of the cards for her which is a real bonus! I love being able to use my scraps up and I'm trying really hard to do that!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Cheeks: R20, R22
  • Vines: YG11, YG13, YG17
  • Mouth: R56, R59
  • Dark Brown: E23, E25, E27, E29
  • Light Brown: E51, E53, E55
  • Brown Eyes: E35, E37, E39
  • Nose: C3, C5, C7, C9
