I had a massage a few weeks ago and my masseuse celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas. She told me that Hanukkah cards are very popular – and that she needs one to send to her grandmother – so I decided to order the Happy Hanukkah stamp. It came yesterday and of course I had to play with it immediately. I CASEd this from the Holiday Catalogue.
After stamping the image in versamark on whisper white paper and sprinkling with the Stampin’ Up! gold embossing powder (yes, it really does need to be Stampin’ Up!’s powder – I experimented with a different, cheaper, brand and it wasn’t as good), I used the heat tool. Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy first. I then took my blender pen and coloured in a few parts of the menorah with pool party. I was intending to mat this with the brushed gold before adhering to the pool party base but it seemed overkill and detracted from the image. So for this card, I’m getting all attention on the menorah which I would think is how it should be!
