As inspiration we used the architecture of Eero Saarinen. Especially, the Gateway Arch and it’s clean and beautiful lines. We also wanted to do a card that was a little different, with an uneven cut and a surprise when it is opened.
And, as promised, here is a link to our FREE, Chanukkah card printable. You can just download the PDF and it is all set to print with crop marks. The cards measure 4.25×5.5 inches so you will need an A2 size envelope. We printed ours on 92lb Savoy paper. It is a rather simple design, so for a little added sparkle, we added a single Swarovski crystal to the star. You can purchase Swarovski flatback crystals on many online shops, like this one. Also, you will notice we spell Chanukkah with an “Ch” or an “H”. We spent quite a bit of time looking this up and it seems either way is fine.
Happy holidays everyone!
