Jewish Celebrations

What a fun week I am having!  I hope you are as well.  The PPA challenge this week is such a great sketch!  I was looking at the Winter Frost DSP and the Star of David kept catching my eye – does that ever happen to you?!  All of the patterns in this designer series paper are gorgeous, but those stars kept me drawn to it.  So, I am very happy that Stampin’ Up! didn’t retire the Jewish Celebrations stamp set or I would have been really stuck!  This card came together so fast (love, love, love it when that happens!).  I am not Jewish but I am very involved with interfaith activities and have Jewish friends.  I love to send them cards for their holidays!  It always makes me happy when I get holiday cards so why wouldn’t they feel that way as well?  This stamp set is not listed in the annual catalog or the holiday mini catalog but it is still available so I will list the item number for you in the details section if you would like to order it.

I heat embossed the menorah and the sentiment stamp in Smoky Slate to match the paper.  The Stars of David are just fussy cut straight from the paper.  Rhinestones are added for a little sparkle and glam.  So, what do you think?  I can easily make these cards for all of my friends and they will hopefully know that I care about them enough to make a pretty card for THEIR holiday.
