Year of the Rooster Sister Stamps

Sister Stamps Zodiac hop Day 2 for Release #12: Year of the Dog and Year of the Rooster.  Card style chosen for this release is a Circle Flip Card. The template for this card is from the Silhouette On Line Store for 99 cents! There are dies with this card style readily available, too if you do not own a Silhouette. Finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". 

I would like to give a shout out to Debbie, at the Paper Pulse Blog. She is a incredible wizard at using the Silhouette computer program.  She took a straight image I had and wrap it around in a circle. The image used is around the Rooster. Watch her You Tube video here to learn how. Clap, clap, clap, happy, happy!!!Cool, eh?
Stamp the Rooster twice, then pop with foam squares. Copics used W-1, R89, R46, YR04, YR07
Rooster Kanji word is cut using SCAL, then popped with foam squares.
Card fully opened: message is computer generated. Corners are also cut using my SCAL program SVG cut file. I have used these corners a lot in my Asian cards.
 Overhead view:
Items used to make this card:

 Apply foam squares only to the back of the front circle and Kanji word.  Corners shown with gold brads in the corner.
In order to emboss the entire card, chose a pattern that has not distinctive front or back. Fold the card in half and position through embossing machine.
Card stock: Recollections Red, recollection Gold Metallic, Neenah White, Black
Accys: Cuttlebug Asian Embossing Folder, Small Gold Brads, !/4" Gold Organdy Ribbon, Foam Squares
