Chinese New Year Envelopes | Elle's Studio
Chinese New Year starts on February 5th. I usually will have a stash of red envelopes. After I couldn't find them, I did a quick search in stores that normally carry them. I'm a little late in getting them, so didn't find any. I knew I could make my own though! But instead of traditional 'red' I went with more of a festive Spring look, which has red...LOL
I die cut the gift card envelopes from Elle's Studio Noteworthy 6x6 double-sided sheets, then punched three different sizes of circles from the same paper. Two of the circles I got very creative with using the new Noted Stamp Set and the Happy Heart Stamp Set to create a horizontal line pattern. On one, I used the reverse side of the paper that already had lines.
So now having a good variety of three different patterned die cut circles, I got more creative with the Happy Heart Stamp set and created a top and bottom to make my circles look more like lanterns. Wasn't sure how I wanted to add Happy Chinese New Year, but the Happy Heart Stamp set, the Jane Alphabet Stamp set, and the January Blank Label Stickers helped!
For a quick one-minute how to, I have a video to share showing the process. If you have any questions, please let me know. I love getting creative like this and Elle's Studio products really are so versatile! Will have some Valentine's Tags to share very soon using some of the same products!
