happy chinese new year greeting cards
homemade wishes for a prosperous new year

Chinese New Year greeting cards can be purchased cheaply almost everywhere over here in Singapore weeks before the festive holidays. But I still prefer to make them myself. I guess because I have all the card making tools and supplies and it is so much fun to make them anyway.

Of all the Chinese holidays, Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year is the most important for the Chinese.

Couplets and papercutting adorned doors of traditional Chinese homes. Red lanterns and other auspicious decorations will be put up in the home weeks before Chinese New Year.

The following Chinese New Year greeting cards are Chinese greetings I made and sent out to family members and friends near and far.

red and gold greeting card

This is a simple red and gold Lunar New Year greeting card that reminds me of those Chinese gates to many old Chinese homes.

It's a gatefold greeting card that looks like a door with a round sign in the centre. The two flaps open up to reveal the Chinese greetings also embossed in gold.
