Happy Snake Year!

Happy Snake Year
Finally made my first Chinese New Year card for 2013! I know it is quite late to start but my available time is limited due to my day job.

Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC32
The simple sketch from Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC32 as shown above is adopted for this card. This card also influenced by CAS-ual Fridays CFC86 - Long and Short challenge whereby it requires us to create a CAS card that has one long side and one short side.

Close-up : The gold snake
The snake is stamped on a long white card stock and colored using Copic markers. It is layered onto a long gold card stock.

Close-up : The sentiment
The sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the long white card stock, below the snake which is just perfect! The long white card stock is then adhered onto a red card base.

Close-up : Fishtail banners/flags
Some fishtail banners/flags are trimmed from left over card stocks and pattern papers. Those left over card stocks and pattern papers really great used for creating small fishtail banners/flags. They are attached onto the top of the card base as shown in sketch.

Happy Snake Year - Inside
On the inside of the card, as the red is too dark for writing, a golden yellow inlay is used. Then, funny sentiment is stamped in the middle of the inlay.
Close-up : Sentiment inside the card

Dimension : 10.16cm x 20.32cm or 4" x 8"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : Yes with stamped sentiment
