Holiday Blog Hop!

Welcome to my little place on the web! I just love Holiday shopping---I mean hopping! There is always so much to see and so many gifts for the creativity! I have several projects to share with you, so let's get started!
Happy Hanukkah to all of my Jewish friends! 

1 charger plate from Michaels
MTC Software
Graphic elements
assorted glue

1. Select font. This font was a free font from Type words and use conical warp (MTC) to shape in a 7" circle. Cut and pop dot to inner rim of  plate. 
2. Cut 4 of the Menorah @ 5-6". Stack together for depth. Glitter Menorah and flames. Adhere to center of plate.
3. Cut 7 Stars of David. Glitter. Pop dot to rim of plate. 

Silhouette Studio or MTC Software
Lettering Delights Happy Hanukkah graphics.
White cardstock
blue cardstock (4" x 8" for card)
Gold stickles
Pop Dots
Glue Dots

1. Import Graphics into software for tracing. 
Background: trace entire image @ 3.8"
Sentiment: trace entire image @ 1.5"
Dreidle: trace 2 at 2"
2. Layer sentiment over background. The sentiment will be printed ONLY, not cut.
PNC (print and cut) background.
3. PNC the dreidels. Glue one dreidle to the card front. 
4. On the other dreidel, cut away the lower left point. 
4. Pop dot the second dreidle to the first, placing the pop dots on the body of the top. Glue dot the point of the remaining spinner to the point of the dreidel on the card. This will give dimension.  
5. Add Faux stitches around card with Stickles. Glitter the dreidle, too!

Merry Christmas and season's greetings to all!
