Happy Hanukkah

Quick Cards Magazine - - Fixes -

I’d like to make a Hanukkah card for my col­league but I’m to­tally stuck for a de­sign. What would you sug­gest? Jill Ven­ton, Ply­mouth

Becky: What a lovely thought! I’m sure your col­league will re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the fact you have taken time to help her cel­e­brate with a hand­made card. I loved the theme of the meno­rah can­dle and look­ing at some im­ages re­alised I could cre­ate a mod­ern ver­sion us­ing nest­ing cir­cle dies. Sim­ply die cut con­cen­tric cir­cles, cut in half and ar­range as the arms of the can­dle stick. Add a sim­ple hand-cut tri­an­gle in the cen­tre as the stand. Place on a sim­ple lay­ered back­ground us­ing ev­ery­day pa­pers – I have cho­sen First Edi­tion Sweet Noth­ing pa­pers (avail­able to pur­chase for £16 from www.hob­by­craft.co.uk). I par­tic­u­larly love the spot­ted pa­per, which re­sem­bles a starry night sky. Die cut your greet­ing in a bold font and dec­o­rate with some ad­he­sive stones, gems or pearls.

Becky’s die-cut meno­rah can­dle looks re­ally pretty with the pas­tel stones
