Chineese New Year: Goat

Today I share with you my card for the Chinese New Year.
You can read all about it here:
It is on Thursday Febuary 19, 2015.

For this occasion Michael Strong has made a 
digital goat image that you can download for
free from his blog here:

You also find an explanation on how you
can use the digital image and change it
in a photoprogram called picasa.

Also I did use some real stamps.
The sentiment and the little goats are from
a Art Neko set called:
You will have this for a long time,for it \has all
the symbols for all the Chinese years.

Now there is more to the card, for when you
 open it up, it looks like this:
Yes, inside it is a pop-up card!
In the red layer, I cut this strip before glueing
it to the yellow layer. This way I could add
the goat to pop up.
On the top,behind the goat, I added Mike's
mini stars,representing the fireworks.
It is stamped and embossed with red embossing powder.

On the goat I added a few glitter stones.
On the bottom of the card I created a place
were to add  you can add some words
and your name with the decoration of
the Art Neko stamps.

Thank you for looking!
Have a creative day!
