Cards for Jewish New Year

Dear Crafty Friends!

As always around this time of the year, 
I start with my cards for the Jewish New Year: Rosh Hashanah.
It is always on a different date for the Jewish calendar
is a moon calendar and this year the New Year starts
the evening of Friday 15th of September and 
is celebrated on the 16th and 17th too.

This year I use a freebie from my friend Paulette.
She has this fantastic site on Facebook for
Junk Journaling with lots of freebies,
that I use for making cards. You find her site HERE.
These are digital images, that you can print
in whatever size you like.

All over the world, Jewish people will celebrate
Rosh Hashanah, the start of a new year on the Jewish
Calendar, with wishes all around for a 
"happy and sweet new year"- signified by dipping
apples into honey, and greeting one another with
"Shanah Tovah", the Hebrew words for the greeting
meaning "A Good Year"!

So here are a few cards I made:
For the Background I used printed paper from 
Paulette's Ko-fi shop called Autumn Hues.

The sentiment is from Stampin'Up! from a set
called "Slices of Happiness".
Shapes are cut with scissors and glued to some gold paper
and also cut by hand with a little border all around.

For this card I used the same printed background, but 
added apples with a stencil (Funky Fossil).
The sentiment is printed with the computer.

Here you see the background panels adapted with 
the apples through the stencil.

The stencil is also perfect for decorating a matching envelop.

I added Nuvo white blizzard glitter drops on 
the honey jars. Made this close up picture, so you
can see how wonderful it makes the honey jar look.

For more ideas for card for Rosh Hashanah, please type
Rosh Hashanah or Jewish New Year in the search box
that you find on the right side of this blog.
I made many different cards, so lots of ideas.

Thank you so much for looking 
and have a creative caffinated day!
