Celebrating Celebration

When I first saw the Hanukkah or Holiday card challenge at Tuesday Trio I thought, Finally an excuse to make a Hanukkah card! Honestly, I usually just miss Hanukkah because my family doesn't celebrate it...but I have several friends who do. Heck, half the time I don't even know what day today is! I decided to make matching Hanukkah and Christmas cards for a family who celebrates both. I had a lot of fun making them. My main concept was based on the tradition in both religions to have candles in the windows.
Inspiration: Tuesday Trio Sketch #43: Hanukkah

Supplies: Martha Stewart silicon stamps, Recollections & DCWV cardstocks, Graphix clear plastic, ZipDry glue, Tim Holtz scissors, StazOn ink, Cricut personal cutter, SCAL2 software, Offray ribbon, Michaels eyelet, Crop-O-Dile II, Sakura gel pens, stickers by Phrase Cafe, gold holographic paper (colors in photo a result of scanning)

Update 12/16/10: This card made the top three for Tuesday Trio Sketch #43.
