Here's the old Chinese New Year card found in my stash.
Below is the remake using the cutout...This character means wealth but it doesn't necessarily mean $$$. Could be love, peace , joy and good health too!
For my non-Asian friends, above are some red packets which we used to put money as gifts to children, parents and to anyone we wish to bless. I used them to make the flowers and fire crackers as embellishments for this card. See below. Black is not a good color for auspicious occasions for the Chinese. But... we are in the 21st century!!! So ... I like the modern colors here:)
