Hanukkah

I have a friend who is celebrating Hannukah starting tomorrow and I wanted to see what I could come up with that she could give to her family and friends.  I decided to make a couple of fry boxes using my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I cut them at 6".  For the front of the fry boxes I stamped a menorrah from the Shalom stamp (B1317) set that Close to My Heart used to carry.  The circles on the front of the box were cut at 1 1/2" and 1 3/4".

Then I decided to make a card as well.  I used the AP cartridge to cut a circle in the center of my card using the "centerpoint" button on my Expression.  I just learned how to use this feature and I must say I LOVE it!   A whole new world has opened up for me :)  I then used a new cartridge I have called "Inspired Heart" to cut the Star of David for the card.  The star was cut at 3".  The circle in the middle of the card was cut at 3 1/4".  I used a stamp from Judaic Commentary (C1380) for the sentiment.  (This stamp set has also been retired.)


Happy Hannukah!
