Today I’m sharing a Chinese New Year card I made using Mama Elephant “Lion Dance” stamp set.


Mama Elephant “Lion Dance” stamp set is probably one of my favorite ones. To color the cute images I used a classic red and yellow color palette. I love the lions and the kids!


I wanted one of the dragons actually dancing, so I used this mechanism I found on Karolyn’s blog. If you don’t know her, you should check her blog! She is incredibly talented and makes some of the most clever interactive cards. Plus, her video tutorials are amazing and super easy to follow!

Here is a short video where you can watch the lion dancing and… surprise! There is a girl with a special message for you!

I’m super happy with this card! It is one of these projects that turned out as it was on my mind. I hope you like it!!

I’m entering this card into Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!!
