CFS Mazel Tov

Hi Folks! In just a few short days, CAS-ual Fridays will be releasing a new set of stamps! Today I'm featuring the Mazel Tov set. In addition to the focal point "Mazel Tov" sentiment, it has a lot of secondary sentiments for Jewish, and other, occasions.

It was perfect timing for me, as my 12-year-old son was just invited to his first Bar Mitzvah celebration for twin classmates. I imagine they (and/or their parents) will be quite surprised to get a custom stamped "Mazel Tov on Your Bar Mitzvah" card from their non-Jewish friend. I'm so excited to give it to them! This card is super simple using just the sentiment on a panel, which is layered on blue glitter paper.

Since the stamps were already laid out on my Misti (to get the centering just right) it was easy to make another card for his brother and one extra to have on hand ...

This sentiment is embossed in white and has a light watercolor wash on top.

Same watercolors for this card, only I upped the intensity to get a greater contrast with the white embossing. The stars in the background are from Star of David.

Keep checking the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see a new set each day. On the 31st everyone will get together and host a blog hop showcasing all the stamp sets from this release. The sets will also be available for purchase that day. Hooray!

Thanks for looking!
