Cooking It Up with Katie Challenge, sponsored by Dude Time Doodles

Dude Time Doodles is sponsoring the current, Anything Goes challenge at Cooking It Up with Katie Challenge (Nov. 30 - Jan. 5), and I just had to make a card for the occasion using Hanukkah Harry!

I made a flap card. Here it is closed:
Isn't he just something else?! I paper pieced him using, in part, Core'dinations cardstocks. Love this stuff...his coat is from their Whitewash collections, white to blue. I machine-embossed & sanded it to reveal this lovely pattern. His at & pants are Core'dinations too, black-to-brown from their Black Magic collection. I printed the image, flipped, onto the light side of the paper and then sorta scraped the detail lines onto the black side. Worked great, very easy!
The card opens:
The sentiments & image on the inside are all from Dude Time Doodles too. I made a piercing template for the little hand-sewn Stars of David, and although they were a bit time-consuming, they were totally worth it. So cute!
For the back, I used two Hanukkah stamps from a Stampin' Up! set. It's difficult to see in this photo, but the Star of David is stamped & clear heat-embossed on both the back of the card (light blue) and the back of the message card.

Don't forget to visit Cooking It Up with Katie to see all the lovely creations. I heard a "rumor" that NanaConnie is going to be featuring Dude Time Doodles cards all through December, so be sure to check out her blog too!
