Layered Hanukkah Card

Layered Hanukkah Card


(inside:  May love and light fill your home and heart at Hanukkah.)

This layered card features printed shimmer card stock (and mats) from a Recollections pack called “Christmas – Holiday Printed Paper” which I picked up after the holidays last year.  The pack contains 3 different 8 1/2 x 11 inch shimmer prints and 2 solid, matte colors.  (The patterns are not really very “Christmas-y.  In fact, the sales clerk almost didn’t give me the post-holiday clearance price because she didn’t think it qualified until I pointed out the title of the pack!)  The shimmer on this card stock is so subtle and beautiful in real life.

The greeting stamp on the front is by craftsmart which I also found at Michaels.  The sentiment on the inside is called “Hanukkah Saying” (item: H-19716) from Rubber Hedgehog Rubber Stamps.

The center panel is popped up with foam tape.  The ribbon is half sheer and half satin with an iridescent thread across the center.

I went back and forth on whether this card stock was appropriate for a Hanukkah card, but I thought it seemed to go so well with the elegant font of the greeting stamp.

Thanks for checking out my card project!
