Chinese New Year Greeting Card

Below is a frame template instructions for making your own frame like the one in this Lunar New Year card. Just follow the step-by-step instructions to cut out a template that you can then lay on your cardstock to trace onto it and use a pen-knife to cut it out.

This is for those who do not own a Sizzix die-cut machine. If you have a Cricut Expression or Silhouette, then you should be able to cut one like that onto gold card stock and then rubber stamp with a background. 

Hope this is helpful for those who do not have a die-cut machine.  Anyway, this is a handmade card so you are right on the mark :-)

Just have fun!
