My Sheri Crafts Challenge #42 - Chinese New Year

Hello everyone,

This week I am the guest designer at My Sheri Crafts. I was so excited to do this project. I was able to use some paper and Cricut Pagoda cart that I had not used before. I also tried a card I've never made before: my first Tri-fold Shutter card. There are a few Utube videos giving full instructions on how to make these stunning cards. They may look intimidating but they are very easy to make. After you make your first you will be whipping them up in no time!

What was used:
Cricut Pagoda (Dragon cut at 2.5 inches, Fan cut at 2 inches)
Cricut Stand and Salute (Fireworks cut at 1.5, 2 and 2.15 inches)
DCWV Far East Mat Stack
The ribbon I had in my stash
One red bling for the eye

I know that red envelopes with money is given for Chinese new year so a really wanted to make that a part of this card. I made the pocket by hand and the piece of red paper on the front of the pocket was first embossed with a Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic Texture folder, then embossed with glitter embossing powder.

Thanks so much to Sheri for having me be apart of the design team this week. I truly appreciate the opportunity. I hope you will visit My Sheri Crafts and take part in her challenges.
Happy Scrapping
