CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and the Girl Fridays are celebrating Hanukkah by showcasing eight nights of inspiration with projects made with 8 Happy Nights. If you wish, you can see previous nights at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog.
Happy Hanukkah to those that celebrate! I chose to create a card with references to the celebration but could be used for multiple occasions. There are eight strips of patterned paper from Echo Park's Winter Wishes Collection adhered to a grey card base for a decorative backdrop to the focal point- a simple sentiment from 8 Happy Nights stamped in black onto a die cut panel that had been stapled to the card base. I think this design would be fun, and quick, easy and economical to recreate for birthday invitations or card sets (switch up the colors and patterns).
I wanted to showcase one of the most simple and quickest ever table top decorations created with 8 Happy Nights as well: if I did celebrate Hanukkah I would have these votive candle bands all over my house! I simply stamped the Happy Hanukkah image onto a one and half inch tall by 5 inch wide piece of plain card stock and stapled the ends together to form a loop and slipped that over a votive candle.
Michele did a fabulous job designing this set, I really like the mix of fonts and bold images! Happy Hanukkah to those who do celebrate this joyous holiday!
