CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: 8 Happy Nights

Good evening, friends!  And a very happy Hanukkah to all of my friends celebrating the Festival of Lights!

I have a special post to share tonight featuring CAS-ual Fridays Stamps' 8 Happy Nights.  When I was creating this card, I thought about the cards that I love most at the holidays:  the ones that sparkle in the flickering candlelight.  Since Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, celebrating the miracle of 8 nights of oil in the Temple of Jerusalem, I wanted to make a card with lots of sparkling glitter.  :)

This is such a simple design, one that would work for lots of themes.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment first, then added clear glitter to strips of glittering tape.

I heat embossed the stars on navy cardstock before cutting them out, mounting them with foam adhesive and adding clear rhinestones to the centers.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Not Quite Navy)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays (8 Happy Nights)
Ink:  Tsukineko (Versamark)
Accessories:  Filigree (white embossing powder), Jo-Ann (clear glitter), Martha Stewart Crafts (glittering tape), Michaels (rhinestones)

Like most cards with glitter, this card is much prettier in person.  *smile*

Stop by the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to see a fabulous Hanukkah card by my friend and fellow Girl Friday, Lynn!
