In the spirit of sharing more love and light, I wanted to share one of my summer projects that I am super proud of…
It has been forever since I have blogged. I’ll just blame it on the baby who isn’t even here yet – 8 weeks to go! But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been crafting when time has allowed. I’m back today to share with you an invitation I designed recently for a special Shabbat dinner to help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Temple Beth Am‘s religious school rabbi.
Ever heard of a Harvey Wallbanger? I hadn’t either until I was introduced to a recipe by way of my brother’s mother-in-law (Thanks Jane!). But apparently it was a very popular drink in the 70s which would explain why I’ve never actually imbibed one myself seeing as how I wasn’t born until 1978. Though I won’t be ordering one at the bar anytime soon (I prefer a good Cosmo), I am here to tell you that it lends itself to the most amazing bundt cake you have ever had. Continue reading
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.
