Hello all! Thanks for coming back to see me (this is assuming that you came by this morning). This post is for today's Papertrey Blog Hop! Here is Nichole's description of this months hop:
I have to be honest and say that I saw a lot of more exclusive symbols and things that I could have chosen, but when I saw a card similar to this online in celebration of eid I thought I would go with it. 1. because I loved it and 2. because I thought it would be really easy to change the sentiment and make it for some other occasion. Honestly, with so much divisiveness going on in the world, this was my way of trying to be inclusive. This could easily be a Christmas card or Kwanzaa card or whatever. Ok, enough of my "world peace" schpeil. LOL
The fluorish is from Fancy Fluorishes and the words are from Star Prints. I inked up one letter at a time to spell out "eid" and it was NOT fun..lol. The bling is from want2scrap.
My second card is for Hanukkah. I wanted to do something really simple with a little bling and this is what resulted:
Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that begins at sundown on December 1st and ends December 9th this year. Again, I won't get into specifics but i'm sure Google will..lol. To make this card, I cut two triangles out of Papertrey vellum and put them on top of each other, one upside down. I then used my 2 way glue and added some of the glitter glass. I added a pearl in the middle and instant Star of David. :) I also used my new Square Lattice folder..and i'm in love. You'll be seeing it again for sure. Maybe tomorrow..lol.
My last card is for Kwanzaa. It's a cultural, not religious, holiday that some African Americans celebrate. It starts the day after Christmas and goes for 7 days. We don't celebrate it, but I know others who do.
Here is my Kwanzaa card:
There is some emphasis on giving natural gifts of food and such during Kwanzaa, so I wanted to make sure there was some food..and then I thought my Pure Innocence little girl was a fun touch as was the "tablecloth". I also used my Square Lattice folder here. Unfortunately, there is no papertrey on this card. I'm sorry, but I just didn't have anything that fit except the cardstock! :)
Well, I hope you liked my cards and maybe got some ideas about cards that YOU can make for someone. Enjoy the rest of the hop! Thanks for dropping in.
