It is an understatement to say I'm so honored by the Time Out team of designers... to think they'd like to CASE me? Their theme is a Thank You card for Challenge 96! Here is the card I chose for the team, and why...
I think of CASE-ing not as Copy And Share Everything, but as trying to create something similar, yet maintain your own style.
This card was created while on the Muse DT - it was a post about being thankful - perfect! because my friend Donna Mikasa had encouraged me to try a technique I hadn't done before. PLUS I based my card on one I'd watched the fabulous Laura Bassen make. See! I loved CASE-ing both of their fabulous styles, and tried to make it my own!
Which is what I encourage YOU to do - oh I do hope you'll play along!
Here is today's version... watch how I change it up:
Today's card uses a stencil to emboss the card base, instead of inking it! Instead of camouflaging my die-cut word, I cut it from patterned paper so it is up front - the star of the show. It's hard to see, but I did cut the die out of the card front, and lined it with that perfect slip of vellum - it's lovely when the light shines through.
Thank you to Sandie, and to the entire Time Out team for this honor.
Thank YOU for stopping by ... it always makes me...
Supplies for today's card: Thankful die from MFT. Stencil from Gina Marie Designs. 'for your thoughts' from a SSS Thanks set. Ellen Hutson's gorgeous linen cardstock.
