A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

A Hanukkah Card

When I hold my annual fundraiser Christmas card sale, I always include several Hanukkah cards.  So when I saw the Just Us Girls colour challenge of white, light blue, and silver, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get a Hanukkah card made.

I smooshed a white tag into a couple of tones of light blue oxide inks, attached it to the card with a silver brad, topped it with a die cut Star of David cut out of silver glitter cs, and added a sentiment strip across it.  I embellished the card base with some white die cut 6 pointed stars.
