Happy Chanukah!

I made two of these giant cards (5.5" x 5.5") to conceal gift cards for my nieces who celebrate Chanukah aka Hanukkah.

The theme is simple. There are 8 blue squares to represent the 8 branches on the menorah and one bright yellow square to represent the Shamash which is the center candle used to light all the other.

Chanukah Lights
Stamps: Star of David from Hebrew Holidays set (Stampin Up)
Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue and Yoyo Yellow (Stampin Up); generic medium purple (from a long ago scrapbook shopping trip)
Ink: Midnight Blue (StazOn)

We are blessed in our family with being able to celebrate the holidays of two different traditions.

Hope the Festival of Lights brings some brightness to your winter!
