I recently learned that in the card making world, “CASe-ing” a card is what you do when you copy and share someone else’s card design. I’m finding that I like to do a lot of CASe (Copy And Share everything) card making, because it’s a great way to try out new techniques and improve my design skills. And sometimes I see something I like so much that I just have to make my own copy of it. So, this group of cards was heavily inspired by THIS card made by Laura Bassen at Doublestick Heaven. I should add that I absolutely LOVE just about every card she makes. She’s a big source of inspiration for me.
Of course, I used what I had in my stash – the tiny dots stencil for the background, a limited number of distress inks to color my embossing paste, and stamps from my sending and wishing stamp set (links to all of these will be listed below). I stamped some of the envelopes on vellum and embossed the ink, and I also stamped some on white cardstock and colored them with copics to match the rest of the card design.
I included one of each of these cards with the handmade card sets that I sent off to some far away friends a month or so ago.
