Year of the Dragon Sister Stamps

Where has the year gone? It's that time again so are you ready for the Year of the Dragon Zodiac release? This will be one of the last 2 releases of the Sister Stamps Zodiac series.  So I wanted to make this card with my favorite colors: Red and Gold. card style is a easel card but it is using acetate for the face of the card.  Kelly Gold card stock paper and Recollections Red card stock used. Randomly placed Gold coins from my stash show through the acetate easily.
The acetate folds up easily shown  here:
The Dragon Kanji is a theme that has been kept throughout my Sisters Stamps Zodiac series. In order to emphasize the year, it is cut using SCAL with Recollections Red card stock along with the Gold Kelly paper.  Adding red Stickles really made it pop. Attach the Dragon Kanji with adhesive dots onto the acetate.
Dragon is stamped using Momento Black Tuxedo ink on Neenah White card stock. Copic colors used: R29, R39, YR09, Y38, Y19, E44, E34, W4, W5
The popped up frame frame is a Silhouette cut file from their on line store called "Decorative Frame Shape". It has been re-sized to 1-3/4" x 3" with a computer generated message using Chow Fun font on White card stock.

Stay tuned and come back tomorrow to see the Year of the Rabbit project.
But now hop on over to the other participants for the last of the series in the Zodiac release:
