Happy Hanukkah

Hanukkah's not quite over yet, so I thought I should get at least one Hanukkah design up on my blog this year.  This one was designed with the current Lawnscaping holiday challenge and the current "silent night neutrals" color challenge at The Card Concept in mind.

Happy Hanukkah card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn Fawn
I used a neutral color palette based on the Card Concept challenge graphic on my clean and layered design.  The card base is a dark gray piece that I topped with a strip of lighter gray striped patterned paper.  The patterned paper is edged with a narrow white strip and just a bit of a kraft scalloped edge strip to break up the gray.

To bring in some sparkle, I heat embossed the dreidel from Lawn Fawn's Happy Hanukkah stamp set in silver ink.  I cut the dreidel out and used dimensional dots to adhere it to the cardfront.  I was worried the sentiment might be lost in the stripes if I didn't stamp it on a separate panel, so I also heat embossed it in silver, then adhered it to the striped panel.  The dreidel was surrounded by a trio of yellow sequin "gelt" pieces for a final festive touch.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papersLawn Fawn Happy Hanukkah stamp set; Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine 6x6 paper pad; yellow sequins; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Smokey Shadow cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink (Tsukineko); silver embossing powder (American Crafts)
