Make this Hannukah card using our free Hannukah card templates! Designer Becky James has created this easy design using nesting stars. If you don't have any patterned paper to hand, why not browse our free patterned paper collection. Everything is free to download, and you can print them off as many times as you like, to ensure your paper collection is always full!


Step 1

Cut 16 x 11cm of gold glitter card, and mount onto a slightly larger piece of dark grey card. This is the front of your card, so go ahead and attach it to the front of a 17 x 12cm white card blank.

Step 2

Download your free Hannukah card templates, and place the largest star template so that it is overlapping the top-left edge of a 15.5 x 10.5cm white card panel, and trim away to leave a negative space. Stick a panel of aqua coloured card behind this white panel and stick this to the front of your card blank, on top of the gold glitter card using foam pads.

Step 3

Using the second largest and smallest template, create a white star frame. It will be slightly smaller than the negative space created in step 2. Stick this star inside the negative space using foam pads. Stick an enamel dot or adhesive gem in the centre of three stacked paper circles, and add to the centre of your star.

Step 4

Cut a dark grey and gold glitter star. Layer them together and arrange below the larger star, removing any excess from the edge. As before, embellish with an enamel dot mounted onto a trio of die-cut circles.

Step 5

Layer up strips of coordinating washi tape (or use offcuts of a card if you don't have any washi tape) below the stars and glue a greeting in place. We're using the Marianne Design Craftables cutting dies in Brush Alphabet, and the Marianne Design Craftables punch cutting die in Letters, to create our sentiment.

Step 6

Add some pearlescent adhesive gems randomly in the background to complete your Hannukah card!
