I checked out the inspiration provided by the design team. I was pretty sure that I didn't have anything "zodiac"-related. That was until I remembered a Mama Elephant set - Lunar Animals that I had thanks to a friend who was downsizing her stash, which included both the stamp set and matching dies.
Here's my card - well actually it's two cards. The dragon card for my sister because, well, she's born in the Year of the Dragon. The cow card is for my brother because, he's born in the Year of the Cow. Clever, eh?
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with Copic markers - C5, R11, W2, W3 for the cow; V06, Y15 for the cow's party hat; E37, Y15, Y17, YG06, YG09, YR07 for the dragon; R37, Y15 for the dragon's party hat. I used the matching dies to cut the images out. For the backgrounds, I cut a piece of light green using Creative Memories 12" decorative trimmer for the hills. I adhered the green to 2" squares of light blue cardstock. To make the images pop a bit more, I matted them with black cardstock. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Say What? stamp set.
Now, the challenge will be to put the cards somewhere safe because my sister's birthday is in August and my brother's birthday is in December!
