Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern for Hanukkah

Happy Sunday! It's snowy and blustery here in CNY, how is it in your neck of the woods? I'm so not ready for winter; I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet and so much to do!
Well, I finally made it back to my craft room this weekend and made this Hanukkah card using the Seasonal Lantern stamp set. We have a tendency to get caught up in Christmas and forget about our friends that are celebrating Hanukkah, so I wanted to show a little love to my Jewish friends!

I got my inspiration directly from the Holiday catalog on page 41. Yes, the catalog image is a bag, but I loved the menorah stamped in a circle, along with the Marina Mist Blue and Gold colors. Use your catalogs for inspiration, they have so many ideas to get you started. .
I started out with a standard card base of Marina Mist cut 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded in half. I added a piece of gold foil paper cut 4" x 5.25" (yes, I did cut the center out of this leaving a .5" border all around to conserve this gorgeous paper) and adhered a piece of Whisper White cut 3.75" x 5" I then added the 3 Marina Mist banners 1" x 4" and I bannered the ends using the Banner Triple Punch (for the center one, I did not push it all the way into the punch so that it would just slightly longer than the 2 end banners). I then stamped the base of the Menorah in Marina Mist ink, the candle outline and centers with Smoky Slate and the flames in So Saffron. I punched it out using the 2" circle punch and adhered it to the front of my card using Fast Fuse. I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White 3" x .5" in Marina Mist and layered it onto a piece of gold foil paper cut 3.25" x .75: and popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Have an amazing day and happy stamping!
