Here's how you play along. Each week you'll be given you a card to CASE and ... you CASE it! It's as easy as that. If you've never CASEd a card before, here's how you do it:
- Look at the photo of the card to CASE;
- Be inspired by some elements of the card - the colours, layout, image, embellishments, etc
- Make a card based on that inspiration and link it up at CASE-ing Christmas Challenge Blog by Noon (Central) / 6pm (UK) on Thursday, 9th April 2015.
And that's all there is to it. Our CASE card this week is this gorgeous creation by Rocky. Lots of ideas here and I can't wait to see how this project inspires you.
By know you know that when it comes to CASEing I am NOT the most creative nor am I imaginative in my interpretation of the CASE card. Feel free to accuse me of being too faithful to the original design.
I started by die cutting the ornaments with 4 of the nesting dies from Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments 2010 set in gold and red metallic card. Then I inlaid them in alternating colours. I had enough to make 2 cards - not one to resist an bargain!
The first card features red as the main colour, and ....
... I went for gold on the second card.
I used the small snowflakes stamps from Clearly Besotted's Ornamental Style to make the bg design, with Versafine Satin Red and Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The banner greeting is from Clearly Besotted's Christmas Cheer, stamped with VersaFine Satin Red and cut with the coordinating die. Then I adhered it to the card with some foam tape. To finish - some sheer ribbon, sequins and brads ... all done and ready for Christmas!
