If you've been following along at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog, you've had a chance to see all the wonderful Hanukkah cards the other Girl Fridays have made. Well tonight it's my turn to share a card made with the 8 Happy Nights stamp set! Now for the paper yummies:
I started off by cutting my stamp (I know...EEK! Even though I know it's okay, it still causes just a little bit of angst when I first start cutting a stamp apart!). Since I was going to be stamping the 8 repeatedly, it just made more sense to cut the 8 away from the adjoining words than to mask the words every single time. I used a white pigment ink to stamp the 8s on my kraft card base. By a happy accident, I ended up with just enough room at the bottom of my card to fit the perfect sentiment (rather than a sentiment banner going across the 8s, as was my original plan). I randomly stamped some blue Stars of David right on top of the white 8s, then added some Diamond Stickles to the stars. I finished off the card with a seam binding bow. If you don't mind the repeated stamping, this card would be super easy to reproduce, as it's basically a single layer card (plus ribbon). And, the recipient of this card said it was the prettiest Hanukkah card she's ever received. YAY! Here's a close-up of the sentiment and glitter:
I hope all of you who celebrate Hanukkah are indeed having 8 happy nights! If you haven't seen all the other creations, check them out here. You can see the entire stamp set below, and you can buy it here:
