Hanukkah Card Roundup

I’ve always been somewhat partial to Hanukkah cards and gift wrap, probably in part because I love blues and teals, but also because I really like the strong but simple design elements often found in Hanukkah paper goods. There is beauty in simplicity, and a single Star of David centered on the front of a crisp, white card or a single row of stylized candles can have big visual impact. Here are some of the lovely Hanukkah greetings that I’ve come across this year in my holiday web travels.

Hanukkah Cards
