A friend of mine was invited to a Red Egg & Ginger party for her cousin’s new baby. I had not heard of this before, but learned that it is a traditional Chinese party to welcome a new baby about a month after he or she is born. I decided to make a card in the shape of a red egg, and emboss it in gold to emphasize the tradition. I made the egg shape out of an old Coluzzle template that I had, but you could also use an oval Big Shot die.
Stamps: Lovely Letters, Baroque Motifs
Paper: Real Red
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Oval Coluzzle (retired)
This is one of my favorite things about card making — truly making the card fit the occasion and the recipient!
