Year of the Rabbit

This is my Year of the Rabbit card: I love using that Calendar Cricut Cart with the "Chinese New Year" message (again cut at 2"). It fit perfectly into this area. I pulled out my favorite retired SU Artful Asian stamp set and randomly stamped the coins using black ink on the Real Red mat. The Year of the Rabbit is a special stamp ONLY made in Hawaii by Stampettes.

This view has less glare?

The Year of the Rabbit is embossed in Black and then lightly colored - his cheeks are a little smudged: wonder where I picked up that dirt.dirty rabbit. Pop the image on dimensionals on top of the knotted Gold Organdy Ribbon.

Inside message: I'm so glad I got this $1 stamp during the holidays, I knew I would be able to use it. The Asian words are not a direct translation - they say wishing you luck!

  • Stamps: Art of Asia (retired), "Happy New Year" $1 stamp from your local store, Asian words from Chinatown Local Store, Year of the Rabbit: Stampettes of Hawaii
