A Bat Mitzvah Card!

If you haven’t been following on Facebook, my crafting has been on hiatus lately thanks to my craft room reno.  The reno is done and now I am slowly unpacking and organizing and getting ready for some serious holiday crafting (and some fun blog giveaways so stay tuned!)

Today I managed to squeeze in a little card since a friend was less than enthused about the bat mitzvah cards she found at the store and asked if I wanted to make one for her.  I jumped at the chance and asked her to send me the invite as inspiration for the card.  Here’s the invite:

I decided to use the glittery blue and green as a starting point but wanted something with some Jewish-ness to it too while still being youthful.  Here’s what I came up with:

I cut a tall skinny size card that is one of my favorites at the moment (3 1/4″ by 6 1/4″) out of Bazzil cardstock (can’t remember the name, sorry).  Then I stamped some Stars of David (this one is from a Jewish stamp set I bought forever ago) using VersaMagic CloudWhite.  Next I punched some lime green flowers which I glued on and accented with True Blue Stickles.  Then I cut and rounded a piece of white cardstock and stamped Mazel Tov from PTI in Grass by Fresh Ink and then gave it a little Firefly Stickles accent.  Finally I lined the inside with more of the lime green cardstock and then paired it with one of my skinny Impress envelopes.  Sorry it’s not the best pic – photographing cards is so tricky and I am still getting the hang of it  especially now that sunshine has left us but hopefully you can get a sense of it.
