My First Hanukkah Card!

I was placed on a project in August last year, and one of my colleagues from the client side on the project is Jewish. So, when I made my Christmas cards for 2018 (which were all sent in late, by the way, due to my work schedule which was stuffed), I made one for him specifically for Hanukkah instead – he ended up getting it after New Year’s – oops. LOL. I didn’t have any stamp sets for Hanukkah, and I came across the Love you a Latke stamp set by LawnFawn and thought it would be great for this card, and purchased it!

It’s a fairly clean and simple card. It’s one layer (because I don’t have the coordinating dies for this set). There is a layer of fun foam between the card front and card base, but that doesn’t count, right? LOL

I used a silver gelly roll pen for the candles, and copics for the flames (with Glossy Accents on top) and the menorah. I cut out the card front with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die (one of my go-to dies for cutting out card bases). If you look closely, you’ll see Star of David stamped in the background with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink. And as usual, I used the Neenah / Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock, which I bought a bigass ream of from CutCardStock.

And that’s it! Easy-peasy!

BTW, today is my last day on the project and I’ll be on the bench the next few weeks, meaning that I’ll be able to craft more, and also post more on IG, and this blog! Be afraid. Be very afraid. LOL. JKJK!

Toodles!

Author: Stamp All The Things!

Hi there! Thank you for visiting! My name is Sphoorti. I know it's a hard name, so you can call me "Sporty", which is what a lot of people do (LOL). When I was in school, I'd know when the teacher was about to call on my name because he/she would pause and start saying, "I know I'm going to butcher this name...." Haha! I'd change my name to make it easier for everyone, but I love its meaning in my native language, which is "inspiration". I'm originally from South India, but I currently live near Los Angeles, CA and have been in the US for around 15 years (4 of which were when I was a teenager). When I was a teenager, I used to make my own cards. By "cards", I mean pieces of printer paper folded in half with confetti and stickers glued onto them, and sentiments written out with Gelly Roll pens. I'm not sure why I stopped (might have had something to do with my family moving back to India around that time), but in December 2016, I rediscovered the wonderful world of cardmaking and have been in love and hooked ever since! I was drawn to all the card drives that companies / other people have (for example, the Caring Hearts Card Drive (by Vera Yates), and the Altenew Celebrating Parents card drive), and have been spending a lot of my free time mass producing cards for them. Oh, and I just came across a new card drive called Cards for Little Hearts, and it's for the Nationwide Children's Hospital who are looking to send Birthday and Graduation cards to patients and I can't wait to start making cards for them as well. My day job is in Software - I'm a consultant. Not sure how I ended up here either, because my original dream was to become a pilot, but when I took the introductory course, I learned that my feet wouldn't reach the pedals because I'm too short. So, there went that dream! (I'm 5' tall in case you're wondering. :) ) My future goals as far as cardmaking goes include having my own YouTube channel, and also designing my own stamps (for which I'll need to learn new tools such as Adobe Illustrator - you'd think I know how to use this tool already being in the software field, but nope!). I've had a number of good ideas but I'm still looking into how to go about making / selling stamps. Oh, and one my goals was to start my own blog, and it looks like I'm about to reach that goal right now. Yay!
