It's easy to make your own free Hanukkah cards or ecards if you have the right artwork. Even though I'm not Jewish, I've always wanted to have access to good clip art so I could use it for sending Hanukkah cards and ecards to my friends. That's why I was so excited when I saw that Picnik had posted some Hanukkah clipart.

For those who aren't familiar with my hubs, I make my own free clip art with the free online graphics application Picnik. (Update 2-9-13: Sadly, Picnik no longer exists in its previous form. Some of the features have been folded into Google+ though.)

There are multiple spellings for Hanukkah, and I created artwork for two of them: Hanukkah and Chanukah. I've separated the art for each so you can choose the spelling you prefer. Just follow the instructions below to download the artwork and create your own Hanukkah cards or ecards.

Instructions

1. Choose a thumbnail version of any of the Hanukkah art above the large images in the right column. When you click on one of the thumbnails, it will appear larger.

2. IMPORTANT: Once you've chosen an image and see it larger, double-click on the larger image, which will make the best version of the art appear. Sorry for the extra step, but this will give you the highest quality art.

3. If you have a PC, right-click and save the final version of the artwork to your hard drive. (If you have a Mac, you probably know how to save an image!)

4. Ecards: If you're going to use the image in a Hanukkah ecard, just insert it into an email. If you don't know how to insert an image into an email or your email program won't allow you to do that, try inserting the image into a MS Word document, copying it from there and pasting it into your email message. You'll probably need to re-size the art, as these images were created quite large.

Greeting cards: If you have access to a program that will allow you insert an image into a greeting card template, just follow the instructions for that. If you don't, you can simply insert the art you want on your greeting card into a MS Word, Open Office or other type of word processing software, re-size it to fit onto the cover of blank greeting cardstock (see below for examples) and then print it on card stock or heavy paper.

Make sure the art is small enough to fit onto the card front. To achieve this, you should size your artwork to be no more than 2/3 the width of the blank card (and even less if you follow the tip below about putting colored paper underneath the image).

You can then cut the printed version with a paper cutter, pinking shears or a craft knife and ruler. Once you have a neat square or rectangle cut around the image, it can be pasted to the front of blank card stock, similar to the types shown below on this page.

Greeting Card Tips:

  • If you use the cut-and-paste method, you can cut colored or glitter paper to a shape and size slightly larger than your image and glue it centered underneath your Hanukkah art. This will give your card a more custom and professional appearance.
  • Use a light application of glitter glue to highlight some areas of your artwork. Don't use too much though. Just a light brush in a few well-chosen locations (such as the menorah candle flames or on the highlights of the dreidel) will give a nice effect without warping the card stock or looking sloppy.
  • Don't use regular liquid or gel glue on your cards, as it will cause them to warp. Instead, use double-sided tape, an adhesive sheet, craft dots or another form of dry adhesive.
  • You can also make Hanukkah gift tags with this artwork, as well as wrapping paper for small gifts. To make wrapping paper, just choose one or more designs and paste them in a nice pattern in an 8-1/2" x 11" or 8-1/2" x 14" document created in a word processing program. When you're happy with the layout, just print the document!

      Probably because green and red were already co-opted by Christmas. :-)
