Morning everyone! Hanukkah is coming early this year, so I made sure to create some Hanukkah greeting cards. This first one is for some very close friends of ours:
This design is counted cross stitch in DMC cotton floss and metallic gold. Base paper is from the Very Merry Christmas paper pack (Echo Park). The two Small Swirls (MyFavoriteThings) are cut from metallic paper. Very simple, but cute Hanukkah card.
I put in a request to DCWV to create a Hanukkah paper pack and bling for next holiday season. My request was forwarded to the design team, so keeping my fingers crossed! It is difficult finding neutral holiday-type paper for the Hanukkah cards, so really looking forward to see what they come out with.
A holiday craft bazaar is coming this weekend, so I wanted to make sure I had Hanukkah cards on hand to sell. I just about sold out last year. This is what I have for this year:
Hanukkah design (Stampinton & Company) was embossed with Gold embossing powder (Tim Holtz). Base paper is Christmas Milestones (Creative Memories). Scallop Trim paper punch (Stampin' Up!) at right edge. Music ribbon sticker (ArtTalent -- The Netherlands). Two Glitter Red brads (WeRMemoryKeepers) add the finishing touch to this card.
A huge thank you to our friends, Greg & Dominique in Belgium, for all ArtTalent items used in our cards. I am really getting into using these goodies!
Same Hanukkah design, but done in Silver embossing powder (Tim Holtz). Papers and right edge punch are the same as above card. The Purple Ribbon (ribbon inspiration), three rhinestones and Star of David with two more rhinestones in upper left finish this card.
Shabbat Shalom (Heritage Handcrafts) is done in Glossy Blue embossing paste (Dreamweaver) and adhered with pop dots. Base paper is from Visions of Christmas paper pad (K&Company). Stock sheer ribbon. Driedel and Star of David stickers (Life's Little Occasions) complete this card.
Happy Chanukah (The Stencil Collection) is done in Pearlescent embossing paste (Dreamweaver) on black card stock for an outstanding effect. Base paper from The Traditional Holiday paper pad (DCWV). Music craft tape (Washi) is brand new -- just picked it up at Michaels Arts & Crafts store. The 3 Stars of David (Life's Little Occasions) complete this popular design card.
Lastly, this Candelabra (Life's Little Occasions) card is a little different. Main piece is a 3-D sticker, like the Driedel and three Stars of David. Base paper is from Home for the Holidays (Recollections) paper pack. The gold Star of David on green paper is embossed in Metallic Gold embossing paste (Dreamweaver).
Hope to see you at the Holiday Craft Shows this year!
Since it looks like my husband will be off work for quite a while, we hope to be able to do additional craft shows next year -- spring, summer, fall and the holidays. Come on out and buy your year's supply of greeting cards, chocolates, etched glassware and other gifts!
Happy Hanukkah and Happy Thanksgiving!
