Hanukkah CASE

So, in my last post, I talked about CASEing.  I decided to do it again with my Hanukkah cards for this year.  Although I am not Jewish, I work at a Jewish temple, and my sister converted to Judaism about 8 or 9 years ago.  Thus I have a need for Hanukkah cards.  Last year I made several different designs to sell on my website and to give away.  This year I decided to just make multiples of the one.  This being back to work full time nonsense has made my crafting a little more difficult the last 6 or 8 months, so I haven't had time to play with my own ideas as much as I'd like.  Thus the need for CASEing.

I CASEd (o.k., borrowed, purloined, stole, flat out-copied) this idea from one I'd seen on the Rubber Cafe blog.  The blogger had gotten her idea from Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas (although I still fail to see the relationship between hers and his...).  I basically took her idea and turned it from a tag into a card.

The image stamps were all  from royalty-free, copyright free images and made with my Theresa Collins Stampmaker.    The Happy Hanukkah is one I picked up at a local craft store last year, I think.   The background stamp is from Club Scrap.  The menorah was stamped using silver ink to ink the menorah itself, and blue marker for the candles.  Gold glitter glue was used for the flames.  The silver glitter embellishments were made using the Scribbles,Swirls Sizzlit die and glitter paper from Stampin'Up!.   The card stock and all the inks, except for the silver, were also from SU!.   The rest is probably pretty self-explanatory.  The insides were stamped with one of the following sayings: (my son's first reaction: "Ugh! Papyrus!"  My kids insist that the papyrus font is for old people!  Too bad, that's how I found the sentiments, so that's how I used them!)
