Hey Chick for Chinese New Year 2017

January 23, 2017 2 Comments

I’ve spent the last week working on invitation samples for a couple of different events.  I always meet with customer first to learn about what they have in mind.  Sometimes it’s very specific and other times it’s an idea or feeling.  We talk colors and invitation numbers and deadlines and then I go home to create.  I always offer more than one sample and try to come up with ways to add on or leave off parts of the design so that it is truly a custom experience.  I’m really excited to meet with my customers for the samples I’ve created.  I can’t wait to see which they choose!!  In the meantime, it’s on to other creating.

Chinese New Year is almost here.

And I wanted to create something for those who are celebrating.

2017 is the Year of the Rooster.

Hey Chick Chinese New Year card from theartfulinker.com

I used a Real Red cardstock base for my card.

Red is a lucky color.

Then, I used the confetti image from Balloon Adventures.

It was inked with Versamark and used to create a repeating pattern down the right hand side of the card.

After stamping the image, it was heat embossed with Gold.

I took a strip of Real Red cardstock and stamped one of the chickens from Hey Chick.  It was inked in Versamark.

Next, I took a fine paintbrush and added a wattle by painting on Versamark.

Then, I heat embossed my chicken turned rooster in Gold.

At the rooster’s feet are three Gold Sequins to represent gold coins.

Three is a lucky number and coins represent prosperity in the new year.

Finally, I added the sentiment “Gong Hey Fat Choy”.  This is the Cantonese way of saying “Happy New Year”.  You could use “Gong Xi Fa Ca” which is Mandarin.

The sentiment was created using the Labeler Alphabet.  Continuing with the gold on red theme, the letters were inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold.  Then, I used Paper Snips to trim each word before placing it on the card.

The inside is finished with a piece of Whisper White.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Hey Chick for Chinese New Year card.
