Quick & Easy Hanukkah Cards

I found this Spellbinders menorah die way back in August, a lonely die sitting in a sale pile! But yay for me … it’s the perfect tool for some fast and easy Hanukkah cards. (Since Hanukkah starts at sundown Sunday, I need these NOW! Lucky for me it’s an eight day celebration!)

I cut menorahs from various white and silver scraps then built some fast card bases. For the blue card, I wanted a fast background, so I grabbed this old triple star stamp from Stampin’ Up! and stamped it a few times using a silver ink pad. A little Ranger Stickles for the lights on the candle and we’re good to go!

The background here is the envelope liner stamp from Hero Arts. The sentiment is also an old one from Stampendous.

For this card (above), I used the leftover scrap with the negative space! I wanted a sparkle, so I brushed on Plaid Extreme Glitter turquoise. I love this glitter — nice sparkle without the mess of applying glitter!) Here’s a close-up:

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Hanukkah to those to celebrate (the festival starts at sundown Sunday, Dec. 6. Get those latkes fryin’!)
