Chinese New Year this year begins Feb 8th and it is the year of the Monkey.
Michael Strong's Blog. I printed it out, and took a copy of it and reversed it in Word- I am not too smooth with tecky stuff, so just eyeballed it to see the reversed one matched up to the other and got lucky : )
I colored the image with Copics and then glued them together. I added a thin strand of thread through the monkeys hand and attached it to the top portion only. The Yellow & Red Washi design used is also a freebie from Michael Strong (same post as the monkey digi). I printed it and added strips of it to the top and bottom- in China, even numbers are considered lucky (except 4 which is like 13 here- unlucky number!!! ).
The Four Way card is a tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. It is quick and easy to make. I would just suggest using a die no bigger than the one I used as the sides will get wobbly if it were any bigger. It does lay flat for mailing as well.
Here is a little info about Chinese New Year- it is also known as the Spring Festival in China.
