The Lawnscaping Challenge is coming to an end today. It's been going for 5 years, but this is their last challenge. The theme this time is "Holiday Cards." I need a couple of Hanukkah cards, so I created this one for this challenge. I got the idea for the stamping from this video by Yana Smakula.
I have a Star of David template that I'd created for another card a couple of months ago. I traced around it onto a piece of masking paper, and enlarged my tracing slightly before cutting it out with a craft knife. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.25x5.5", and adhered the negative portion of my mask to that, centered side-to-side. I stamped snowflake & heart images from "Winter in the Park," "Deck the Halls," & "Peace Joy Love" (all by Lawn Fawn) to stamp inside the opening in my mask. I used Hero Arts Soft Pool, Tide Pool, & Pool inks, as well as Delicata Silvery Shimmer pigment ink for my images. I heat embossed the silver ones with Recollections Clear Detail embossing powder. To make the Star of David stand out even more, after I'd finished stamping & heat embossing, I inked lightly with Broken China Distress ink. Then I removed my mask.
For the greeting, I used Lawn Fawn's "Claire's ABC's" & my MISTI to stamp with Versamark. I heat embossed that with Ranger Silver embossing powder.
To finish, I inked a scrap of white cardstock with Pool ink, and cut two 1/8" strips. I glued those to either side of the card front, and adhered the card to a white A2 card base.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door: "Anything Goes"
Pile It On #123: "Any Holiday/Celebration"
