Year of the Tiger Sister Stamps

This is the August release for the Sister Stamps Zodiac series. Shown today will be the Year of the Tiger. I am a Tiger so I especially like this month. Tomorrow I will post the Year of the Ox release. Each of the panels are decorated with three sizes of brass coins randomly adhered using mini glue dots.  Recollections Black and Red card stock used.  Gold card stock is from Kelly paper. The die used is from Sizzix Accordion Flip 3D and Frame & label, Bracket  dies from Karen Burniston.  Each finished is 4-3/4" x 4-3/4". 
 Overhead view:
Sections one and two:
Section three and four:
 Before assembly, I decided it was easier to take a photo of each panel. First panel:
Second panel: Tiger is stamped on Neenah white card stock. Stamp the image on the Recollections Vanilla Card stock to capture the whiskers, then cut out the Tiger after Copic coloring. Adhere on top and you can retain those whiskers.
Third panel: Tiger Kanji Character made using SCAL:
Fourth Panel:
Copic colors used: Y11, Y17, Y18, E30, E51, E34, E31, R20
Here's the last panel: some Yellow Stickles for the fun sparkle. the firecrackers are made by rolling 1" wide red paper with a black rayon cord and the stem.

This is a FABULOUS New Years card showcasing The Year of The Tiger Stamp. I love this accordion fold die and you did a great job decorating and embellishing the panels to be so festive ...firecrackers are so realistic! Definitely gotta try making those come New Years this year!
