Chinese New Year Card

Hi everyone :-D 

Yesterday I made this Chinese New Year Card. I was inspired with Chinese Lanterns (love them) and colors traditional in Chinese culture.

I used gorgeous free digital stamp 'Lanterns' from Avery Elle 
Image is paper pieced
First I printed the image and sentiment on a golden paper
Then I printed two more images (only lanterns, to save paper and printer color), one on the golden paper and second on a red textured cardstock paper. 
I cut out red lanterns, colored edges with black fine liners and glued them over lanterns printed on golden paper.
At the end, I cut out few lantern stripes printed on the golden paper and glued them on the image.

Card dimensions are 139 mm x 101 mm (5 1/2" x 4").

List of supplies:
  • Avery Elle digital freebie 'Lanterns' 
  • black cardstock paper
  • red textured cardstock paper
  • golden paper (130 grams) 
  • Staedtler Lumocolor permanent black pen F (fine) 0.6 mm
  • UHU universal glu
  • white water based glue 
  • printer
  • scoring board
  • trimmer 
  • scissors 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
