Chinese greeting cards you make at home are definitely different from those greeting cards you bought in Chinatown or any card stores.
When you make your own greeting cards, you decide on the design and color theme. Your Chinese greetings can be punched, handwritten, stamped or computer printed. The design can be as clean and simple as you like or with as much embellishments as you can squeeze into that 5 "by 7" or 5.25 "x 5.25" card front. Most important is that the greeting card is specially created by you for someone you are sending that Chinese greeting card to. It's unique! It's special!
So start creating some Chinese greeting cards today! Whether it's a birthday card, a Chinese New Year greeting card, or a Get Well card, do create it yourself to send your Chinese greetings in a homemade style uniquely your own.
Here are some greeting cards in Chinese that you might use as a starting point if you are just into card making or if you just need an idea or design for making and sending oriental greeting cards.
Of all the Chinese holidays, Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year is the most important for the Chinese.
Couplets and papercuttings adorned doors of traditional Chinese homes. Red lanterns and other auspicious decorations will be put up in the home weeks before Chinese New Year.
So to participate in this celebration, let's start by making some Chinese New Year greeting cards .
Make your own Chinese new your gifts: a gift bag filled with goodies to be given before the 1st day of Chinese New Year. Or a hamper full of goodness; example wine, Chinese cookies, Chicken stocks and other tonics for a healthy new year.
A Chinese New Year gift to bring in the new year. A red bag of candies is the best gift to give during this time.
Giving and eating sweet stuffs means that the new year will be a smooth and sweet year. So by giving a bag of sweets, the giver is wishing the recipient a happy year ahead.
Hope to put more Oriental cards here. Lots of ideas but so little time but will get those cards done as I so love to make these greeting cards and send them out to bless others. :-)
As Happy Valentine's Day is so closed to Chinese New Year, here are love verses or words to put into your homemade Valentine's Cards.
