Hanukkah Card

The fourth card from the Merry and Bright Collection from SVGcuts.com is a Hanukkah Card. It turned out pretty good. Let the SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) program do all the cutting for you and all you have to do is assemble. Love it!!! This card doesn't use too much pattern paper at all.Finished card size: 5-1/2" x 5-1/2". And, no worries, because an envelope is ALWAYS included in the collection for every card...........cool, eh? All edges are inked with Close to Cocoa ink........it seems to be the "go to" color for inking the edges.

After adding a dot texture to the card face, Stardust Stickles applied to the dots for added bling. Instead of adding fabric rose embellishments to the side of the card (as shown in the original sample from the collection), a 1/2" Blue grosgrain together with a silver elastic cord finishes off the card.

The star is cut, then adhered to the shimmery white background using a 2 way glue pen.

Here's a closer view: image is popped with Fiskars Square Mini Pop-ups (they were small enough to be positioned behind the candelabra). The candles are using a Shimmery White card stock.
