Hanukkah Slider card - Jewish Celebrations

This card is being shown a little late, but I couldn't share it before Hanukkah as it was part of a series of gifts to my Secret Sister and I didn't want her to find it on my blog! This is a slider card with a top pull tab and a peek-a-boo window to the liner, using the Jewish Celebrations stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

My favorite part of this card is the Gold Embossed Window. I punched the window with the 1" Square Punch and then wiped VersaMark Ink around the frame. Then I poured Gold Embossing Powder over and heat it to set. The Star of David on the inside liner is stamped in VersaMark and embossed with Gold EP as well.
TIP: Punch the Window on the front of the card sleeve and then slide the liner into the card. Then stamp the inside image through the front window so that it is placed perfectly.

I heated the Taffeta Ribbon bow with the Heat Gun, too, which gives it this crinkled look. The pull tab is a Vintage Brad poked through a Circle of Midnight Muse cardstock which is stamped in Illuminate Ink. Then finished with small strip of DSP that covers the brad legs on the back side of the liner.

I made a custom Vellum Envelope for this card using my Score Tool. The Snowflake Tag is numbered '8' for the eighth gift she opened. The Snowflake is from the Snow Flurries Bigz Die in Silver Glimmer paper. I stamped French Script with Illuminate Ink onto Midnight Muse Paper and then punched it with a Circle Punch. The numbers are die cut with the Typeset Numbers from Champagne Glimmer paper - these are SPARKLY!

 Here is the first gift I gave my Secret Sister - I ran a Vellum Bag through the Big Shot with a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then tied it closed with some Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon. Inside are a tube of Starbucks Creme Brulee candy and some curls of DSP.

I really loved the tags for my gifts and some of the packaging was beautiful, I just wish I had given her more inspired gifts.
