I finally made a Passover card this year! It starts Monday night, so that is really cutting it close. I used the colors from this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge, which are perfect for any kind of Spring card, and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch!
When I first saw this sketch, I immediately thought of my Ten Plagues Card, which is my all-time favorite Passover card ever. But I don’t want to mess with perfection, so I needed to come with another idea. Luckily, Eve was around to bounce ideas off of. I thought of making the squares matzah, but she pointed out there should only be eight pieces of matzah, one for each day of Passover. So I put a Jewish Star in the middle square instead.
Stamps: Woodgrain, Jewish Celebrations
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron
Paper: Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Other: Square Lattice Embossing Folder
To make the matzah, I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the Woodgrain stamp in Chocolate Chip ink. Then I ran the piece through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I cut it into eight 1″ squares, avoiding the knots in the design. Finally, I sponged So Saffron on top of the pieces, and Chocolate Chip around the edges. And we have Matzah! (Truthfully, it probably tastes about the same, too.) I would have preferred a Happy Passover stamp, but the one I have didn’t fit in the space. Shalom is always useful, though.
