Gung Hay Fat Choy! Here is my latest card for Chinese New Year. This is the Year of the Boar/Pig.

I thought up this card back in December when I attended a rubber stampcarving class. Here is the stamp I carved, based on an image of a papercut pig I found online.

Here is a closeup of the stamped image:

I added a handmade tassel and a braided loop to hang it.

I used this card style previously for another occasion, a graduation, check it out here:

This is so cute!
& yes, a stamp carving class would be fun. I learned how to do it from Craftster tutorials but you always learn neat tricks from an experienced instructor Smiley.

Endymion, a few years ago our library system started a Maker Lab with machines for 3-D printing, laser cutting, they even have an electronic knitting machine.  Although they have had craft type classes before, there has been much more interest in handcrafts since then (not using the machines).  So there have been many types of introductory classes--making terrariums, popup cards, embroidery, even sewing on sewing machines.  In the rubber stamp carving class, the topic was Holiday Printmaking and we carved soft rubber sheets.  Even though it was in December I planned ahead and found a papercut pig image to carve in anticipation of making my Chinese New Year card.  Here is the image I used:

I traced the image with pen and paper in a more simplified design, then rubbed it onto the rubber stamp with my fingernail as a guide for cutting.

The classes are often given by local artists or creative people.
