Chinese New Year

How many of you know that it is Chinese New Year on 26th January - quite early this year - but we are now going into the year of the ox!

Did you know that in Chinese terms it is unlucky to buy a pair of shoes during the New Year celebrations! Don't worry it only lasts one day.

To help you on your way to celebrate the year of the ox why not send a simple card - red is seen to be very lucky and symbolises money - so any touch of red would be most welcome.

Here I have chosen a simple black large square card and the main card and then used versamark ink to bring out the rice bowl and teapot on a peice of red card. Using the same teapot stamp I have embossed this in gold to give a dramatic effect. Using a piece of black ribbon just breaks up the card.

Hope you enjoy!
