Happy Hanukkah Card

Hanukkah began on the evening of December 24 this year. I decided to make my boss a Hanukkah card. He is always so gracious each year, wishing all the staff happy holidays and Merry Christmas and I have felt bad for not stepping out of my comfort zone to make a card for him. So I set out on a Google quest for inspiration and education. Who knew the number of candles on a menorah can vary?

I finally found a free SVG file (https://cutfiles.net/444/menorah-2-cut-file/) that I could cut on my Silhouette Cameo, and with selective masking, I was able to glitter up a burnished velvet menorah. I used yellow and gold glitters to create the flames. It is so pretty in real like, sparkling against the white cardstock. It seems blue and gold are traditional colours, but I think the menorah design is modern, clean and simple. Then again, what do I know? Happy Hanukkah!


I am entering this in the CAS-ual Fridays challenge:
