C4C 305 Hanukkah Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means there is a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Raquel Mason is our hostess for September and this is her challenge:  September's Birthstone is the sapphire. Show me the blue! Make blue the most prominent color of your card.

Getting a jump on our holiday cards, I made a 'Happy Hanukkah' card card for our daughter and family. The Circle Accordion is an Accordion die by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs and it worked perfectly for this card! Below is the card folded up ready to be put in the envelope ...

 ... and here is the card opened. I have been having a lot of fun lately, die cutting glittered fun foam. That is what I used for the star on the front  of the card.

While it's hard to see in the photo, there is glitter glue on the word 'BRIGHT'.

I also used the Square with Circle Frame Edges, cutting them out of the same blue card stock as the card was made from. They were each embossed with an embossing folder before adhering to the card. For some seasonal sparkle, I added Glitter Lines Peel-Off's on each inner edge.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C305.
