Weekly Inspiration By Alice
Greetings to everyone and you must be busy preparing for the Chinese New Year that is just round the corner. Today I like to share with you on making simple greetings card and angpow packet. All materials are available in Krafers’ Paradise except the Chinese character stamps are my own collections.
Chinese New Year Card


Red and yellow plain textured card stock, Chinese Character rubber stamp, Peony flowers cut out from the pattern paper.

  1. Cut 1 piece of yellow card stock measuring H14.5cm x W13cm.
  2. Cut 1 piece of red card stock measuring H13.5cm x 12.5cm
  3. Stick all the above 3 pieces of plan card stock together in sequence (red, yellow, red).
  4. Next, cut a smaller piece of the yellow card stock measuring 11cm x 4.5cm.
  5. Cut a small piece of the red card stock measuring H10cm x 4cm.
  6. Stamp the Chinese character “Gong Xi Fa Cai” onto the same red card stock.
  7. Roll the corner of the red card stock with a toothpick to curl up the sides. Refer to picture for reference.

1.     Cut out the flower of your choice from the pattern paper and ink at the sides of the flower to give a 3D effect.
2.     Lastly assemble all the items onto the card as show in the above picture. 
Angpow Packet
Red plain textured card stock- 12”x12”, Chinese Character rubber stamp, flowers cut out from the pattern paper. Chinese characters rubber stamp or print out from internet.
  1. Cut 1 piece of red color plain card as a base for the angpow packet, refer to the diagram for measurements.
  1. Score and fold on the dotted line. Paste double side tape as show on the picture.
3.     Cut out the flowers from the pattern paper, glue onto the paper and stamp Chinese characters onto the right side of paper as shown. Finally stick together both corners except one side of the corner as opening for the angpow packet.

Thank you and have fun creating them!
