So this fortnight we're making cards for our friends who don't necessarily celebrate Christmas. Hanukkah is perhaps the most famous of the other winter holidays, and it (plus our favorite Adam Sandler song!) inspired our title, but you could choose Kwanzaa, New Year, Hogmanay or Solstice; or you could go totally non-denominational with a general winter-themed card.
Stephanie says, "I started with this peaceful Penny Black Starry Night Stickeroo and built my Hanukkah card around it with a few more sticker sentiments and sticker letters too. I die cut some metallic silver into an oblong octagon and then die cut some Swirling Stars. I finished with a wrap of ribbon and a few sprinkled gems."
Lauren says, "I had an awesome new-to-me Hero Arts Happy Hanukkah stamp set to inspire me this week; but truly, I've made plenty of Hanukkah cards through the years which just used blue and silver patterned paper, and candles made from strips of patterned paper or washi tape! My dreamy background layer is watercolor paper, sprinkled with various blue shades of ColorBurst and spritzed; the multicolored layer further back is an alcohol ink experiment that did not come out as i intended, but was too pretty to throw away, lol. By the way, Eyelet Outlet Tear Drop Bling makes outstanding menorah flames... just sayin'..."
We've got a fun little prize this time for one lucky, randomly selected, cardmaker who links up with us. It's some Hero Arts woodmount Hanukkah stamps and beautiful Eyelet Outlet Bling in silver, blue and white!
Link up as many brand new, non-Christmas, winter holiday cards as you like by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, October 9th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:19:20.
