Happy Thanksgivukkah! No, that isn’t a typo. Today, Hannukkah starts on Thanksgiving, which won’t happen again for around 100 years. The Jewish Celebrations stamp set is a great one to use for this very special occasion! I still have a few more cards to make but wanted to show you this one in case you are looking for a design. This sketch is a very nice one to use because it showcases whatever stamp you want and still has some interesting details added. As all holiday cards should be (in my opinion at least), this card comes together very easily without a lot of fuss. I used the new silver foil paper that was embossed with the Stripes Textured Impression Embossing Folder and another piece trimmed to fit horizontally and was layered with Pool Party and the new silver 1/8″ ribbon. The Frosted Finishes Embellishments, which is probably the coolest embellishment that Stampin’ Up! has ever come out with, was the PERFECT touch on this card. The focal point, which is the beautiful Star of David, was stamped twice – once on Bermuda Bay and again on Pool Party – in the Silver Metallic Encore Pad. The star was fussy cut from the Pool Party and popped up with dimensionals and a rhinestone added to the center. The sentiment was heat embossed in Pool Party and little banners made with the silver foil paper. The hexagon punch was used to cut the ends easily.

I also made another Hanukkah card (click here to see) so you can use one or the other or a combination of both! I hope you make one for your friends or family. Thanksgiving is supposed to be a day to count our blessings (not SHOPPING! Sorry, I just had to say it!), and I am so blessed with a wonderful family. To my friends, locally and virtually, I wish you all a very blessed holiday season!
Keep calm and craft on!
