What a crazy couple of weeks.On top of needing  two birthday cards and I got a card commission for two baby's first Thanksgiving and Hanukkah cards.  I knew I wanted to make two similar cards, not identical but easy to replicate and the Hanukkah cards I wanted to be identical. Since I love using Distress inks I started with a blended background, slightly different for each card.  I then stamped HA tiny stars on both, one got silver embossing and the other holographic.  I used Lawn Fawn and Simon Says for the stamps, Papertrey Ink for the words and Lawn Fawn and Papertrey Ink for the leaves

Here is the Hanukkah card (I lifted the center medallion idea from Nichole Heady) using Papertrey Ink's Mazel Tov. I originally wanted to add an embossed border around the edges but decided on Hero Arts Paint Spots instead and Filigree silver embossing powder.The star was cut  (with offset) on my Cameo. Easy to make assembly line and I will use it as my Hanukkah card for this year.  There is a stamped and silver embossed sentiment inside.  As you can see with a 6 pointed star, it stands at a tilt. Paper is MFT Nightshft blue and I am still struggling with my white balance on my pics.
