Happy Hanukkah

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me from the Card A Day Blog.  This week we are making Hanukkah cards.  I'm using my Cricut and Design Studio to make my card.  I used the image from the Joys of the Season cartridge for my focal image then layered it onto blue cardstock.  I do have the cutting measurements listed below.

I like using a paper pack for this type of card as I know the colors will match.  I layered the image onto a piece of glitter paper.

For the inside I just inked the edges of my mat.  Tomorrow Shelley Bordeleau is our Designer at Card A Day so be sure to stop back and she what she has to inspire you.  (Sorry for the dark first picture - it's really overcast here and just won't lighten up.)

Thanks for stopping by.
