Create a contemporary Hanukkah card using strips of colored vellum and blue brads. The blue-and-white color scheme gains interest from the subtle shades that emerge when you overlap the vellum. A simple greeting -- "Shalom" -- communicates the spirit of the season.

Tools and Materials

  • 10-x-6-1/2-inch piece of white card stock
  • Dark blue and light blue vellum
  • 6-pointed star punches in two sizes (or stars cut from dark blue vellum)
  • Pliers
  • 6 brads
  • Rub-on lettering

Fold the 10-x-6-1/2-inch piece of white card stock in half to get a 5-x-6-1/2-inch card. Cut wavy strips of dark blue and light blue vellum in varying thicknesses and adhere them to the card with some dark strips beneath the lighter ones. Add narrow, wavy strips of white card stock to separate the blue strips.

Punch three six-pointed stars from the dark blue vellum and affix them to the cards. Use pliers to pull the caps off six blue brads and spell out "Shalom" with rub-on letters. Affix the brads to the card with adhesive foam.
