Happy Hanukkah!

I've been invited to BoniBleaux Designs as a guest designer for November.
My mission was to create a Hanukkah card using the digital stamp Hanukkah Harry, newly released on November 15th.
So here's the card I made.

For the background papers I used:
Red CS
Leather textured green and red CS, their edges slightly distressed for a Shabby Chic look
Basic Grey Origins papers, punched with Martha Stewart's Quilted edger punch
I printed Hanukkah Harry digital stamp on white CS and colored it with pencils.
To make Harry's background look old (like Harry himself…) I used Ranger's distress ink: Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw and Old Paper, mixing the 3 colors with a dauber.
I printed the text "Happy Hanukkah" on white CS and distressed it like the stamp's background. I used a ticket punch and brads for the corners.
The red CS, with the colored stamp and the sentiment on it, was glued 3D for extra dimension.

And here's a closeup photo of the colored stamp:

The color combo may remind you of Christmas. Well, it's the holidays season, and there are many reasons to celebrate.
Hanukkah is a holiday of light (lighting candles for 8 days) and calories (eating donuts and latkes).
I wish you all a Happy Hanukkah, filled with joy and calorie light :-)

H is for..... - Hanukkah card for ABC Challenge (21.11.10) .
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly


  1. What a great card,Dorly! Love how you did the background. Thanks for explaining.

  2. דמות חדשה במיתוליגה היהודית?! לא זוכרת שלמדתי עליו, אבל אני מאשימה את זכרוני הרעוע בלבד :)
    הכרטיס יפה, עשוי למופת. הרקע לגמרי לא פשוט ולקח קצת זמן לפענח אותו. מושקע באופן טיפוסי, כלומר מושקע ביותר.
    חג שמח!

  3. love the shabby chic look. goodluck at abc challenge.

    hugs Clare x

  4. איזו חריצות!!! כבר חנוכה!! כרטיעס נהדר אבל חבל לי על האיש העצוב...חנוכה אמור להיות חג שמח!!
    אי אפשר לחייך אותו קצת? יש לו עיניים כ"כ עצובות...

  5. Dorly! LOVE your card and all your little details you added. I love that you added the coins to the photo! FANTASTIC!! I'm so sorry to have been missing lately I have been really under the weather but I do appreciate your lovely work on Harry!!

  6. איזה כרטיס מושקע! ספרתי 6 שכבות, אבל אולי פספסתי משהו... בכל מקרה הוא מדליק! ושיהיה חג של אור!
