Emma's Imagination Monday Chinese New Year Challenge

Hello!  I was so excited to make this card for the challenge over at  Emma's  My Creative Time.The challenge is to make a project to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I have always wanted to use the Panda cut on the Create a Critter cartridge, but haven't had the opportunity to do so until now. I don't have the Pagoda cartridge  to do a more traditional Chinese card and I think a lot of people are using a rabbit for their card for the Year of the Rabbit, so I wanted to do something a little different. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.  As I mentioned in my last post, I am soooo loving my Imagine right now!  It is so fun mixing the older cartridges with the Imagine patterns and colors.  The entire card, minus the card base, was created using my Imagine. The recipe for the card is shown below the picures.  Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my card today. Happy Crafting!!

Base card: SU Crumb Cake cardstock cut to make a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card
Red Background Frame: Pattern paper from DCWV Amber Autumn stack, cut at 6.2" using Just Because Cards cartridge
Panda: Cut at 3" using Create A Critter and the colors are from Imagine More Cards
Hat: Cut at 3" using Create A Critter and colors and pattern print from Best Friends cartridge
Bamboo: Cut at 5" using Create A Critter and pattern from Kate's Kitchen
Chinese New Year sentiment: Cut at 1.7" using Designer Calendar using Imagine standard black. It is actually layered because the first time around I forgot to put the Imagine back on print and cut, so it only cut. I like it better this way anyway....  adds a bit more dimension! :)


Your comments truly make my day!! Thank you so much. :)
