Traditionally Painted Cards for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa


Instead of showing Christmas Cards, this month's selection of designs by Greeting Card Universe artists who use traditional methods, features designs for some of the slightly less catered for 'holidays', Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year. 


There are so many New Year's cards to feature that I've split this post in two and this time, we'll just showcase cards for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Watch out for the New Year's Cards next Thursday!
