It's time for another challenge over at Tuesday Alchemy today! Challenge 44 is Anything Goes, and there's a fab prize at stake - 4 free digital images from Sassy Studio Designs. So head on over there and join the challenge!
I am in need of a couple of Hanukkah cards this year, so here is my first one. It's CAS (Clean And Simple), but there is still detail and embellishment, two features that I insist on having on my cards, even if only in small doses. (I just don't know how to leave a plain white piece of CS alone.)
I dry embossed the first layer with an SU embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper.
The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White, using the SB Grommet Tags die. I cut another tag from the navy blue CS, cut it in half lengthwise and "shadowed" the white layer by adhering the navy offset from the white just a little bit. I added a bit of silver ribbon instead of using grommets.
I heat embossed the menorah using SU silver ef, then I cut it out with a circle die and cut another circle (in white) 1/8" larger, also using a circle die. I inked the edges of the white circle with navy ink so that it would show up against the white background and popped the whole thing up on dimensionals.
And that, dear friends, is that. Some occasions call for simple and elegant. Thank you for joining me today, and don't forget to join Tuesday Alchemy's challenge this week!
