It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another Shopping Our Stash challenge. This week we ask you to make a card either with a Winter/Snow theme or Chanukah/Christmas/Holiday theme.
I decided to make a Chanukah* card with supplies I bought forever ago. I've actually made Chanukah cards like this before, with the same supplies, but it's been YEARS, so I decided the stuff is officially "stash". Here's my card, then I'll explain:
The stamps are from a PTI set (Mazel Tov, I think), the white card stock is SU Shimmer White, and the blue shimmer card stock is from PTI. I may have hoarded both.
I stamped the round pattern with SU Midnight Muse ink onto the shimmer white, cut it into a banner, layered it onto some blue, and stuck it to the front of the card. The menorah was stamped in the same ink, and the circles were die-cut with Nestabilities circle dies. I colored the candles with Sakura gel pens.
You can kinda see the shimmer here:
Okay, now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash and make a winter/snow/holiday card. Think mittens, hot cocoa, skiing, snowballs ... LOTS of options! Make a card, then link us up at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
*In case you've wondered why there are so many different spellings of Chanukah, that's because it's a transliteration from the Hebrew word, which means it's spelled as it sounds in Hebrew. The first letter of the Hebrew word is a CH sound, not like in "church", but like the ch in "chutzpa"; it's a more guttural, throaty sound, like you're clearing your throat. It's that sound that's interpreted differently when spelling it in English letters.
