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.
