Among card makers we have a phenomenon called CASE or casing. One definition I’ve heard is, “Copy and Steal Everything.” I CASE cards all the time. Sometimes I change the paper or the layout. Sometimes I take one element I love from three different cards and put them together on a totally different card.
I saw this card recently that used a little star for the “dotted i ” in Birthday using the Stylized Birthday stamp.
Isn’t Marlene’s card cute?! Well when I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a card with the Stylized Birthday stamp and put a cute star to dot the “i” I haven’t made my cased card yet, but it’s on my list.
I love it when people comment on my blog, “like” my StampingMom page on Facebook, or follow me on Pinterest. After being a stay at home and work at home Mom (accounting and bookkeeping business) for 26 years, I’m thrilled with every little bit of affirmation I can get. For some reason, my children don’t compliment me on my laundry skills, thank me for cleaning the kitchen, or tell me I did a good job driving them to school. 🙂
Well, Jan Ross commented on this card.
And then she took it one step further. She CASEd it and sent me a picture. This truly makes my heart happy! Thanks Jan for taking the time to comment and also to CASE and send me a picture.
I love your cards Jan! Notice how she used the same black Flourish Thinlit flower with two Enamel Shapes dots, layered the “Just a Note,” but used different DSP and changed the layout.
I hope you feel inspired to CASE one of my cards and send me a picture! I’d love to share them here on my blog.
