|Mid-Autumn Festival mini cards|
It is Mid-Autumn or Mooncake Festival today which celebrated by the Chinese community. It is a big festival in Chinese Lunar calendar. Thus, I made some mini cards to send the warm wishes to my fellow colleagues.
It took me quite some time to finish these cards due to the various stamping images, trimming and coloring. But it is all worth the efforts I put in when my colleagues send me thank you and their appreciation messages. I really sincere wish them happy during this festival with their family and friends.
A yellow base card is used as background. The following images are stamped on a white card and colored:
1) branch - Hero Arts CL439 Kiss from the Sun
3) lantern - Hero Arts CL308 Arigato
4) sentiment 'Celebrate' - CL272 All Occasion Messages
Since it is fall/autumn season, I used branch and leaves on the card to mimic the season. The lantern and moon are to symbolize the Mid-Autumn or Mooncake Festival. The sentiment 'Celebrate' is perfect for this occasion as to urge people to celebrate this festival!

After the white card is attached onto the yellow card, trimmed lanterns in various colors are attached onto the stamped lantern using pop dots. What is Mooncake Festival if there is no moon in the card? Thus, the sun from Hero Arts CL439 Kiss from the Sun is used as the moon by omitting (trim off) the sun rays. It is attached to the left upper corner of the card overlapping the white card.
Additional texture is added to the card whereby I stitch the lantern circle loop with black thread to the branch which give an effect that the lantern is hanging from the branch.
