Do you know what CASEing a card means? It stands for Copy And Share Everything.
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, I’ve talked about attending retreats and participating in swaps. The intention of those swaps is for all of us demonstrators to get ideas from other talented demonstrators and then to use those ideas in our own business/hobby. You can either copy the cards exactly as they were made originally, or you can change them up to make them your own.
Today’s card is a CASEd card. The original idea was from one of my sideline demonstrators, Mary Rushing.
I didn’t have all the products Mary used in her card so I couldn’t recreate it exactly as she had. But I took her basic ideas and made my own version.
I kept the same basic sketch and elements of the card, including the Designer Series Paper behind the stitched frame and the sentiment from the Well Written Framelits Dies.
I didn’t have any of the green DSP left that she used so I picked another pattern and changed up my colors to match the DSP.
I chose not to purchase the coordinating (there’s that word again!) Hummingbird Framelits Dies for this stamp set, so I just stamped the image on an oval stitched die and layered it with the oval scalloped die.
I honestly have no idea if Hibiscus flowers (that is a hibiscus, isn’t it??) come in purple, but that’s the beauty of creating…you can make them any color you want them to be…
…or any color that matches the DSP you have at the time.
When someone pins one of my cards to Pinterest, it is one of the best compliments she (or he!) could give. I think copying is the best form of flattery. So, by all means, if you see something you like here, CASE away!
