Two CASE'd Christmas cards


Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing two cards I CASE'd (copy and share everything) from myself. :)

This year my Christmas gift to my sister Dee, is to make some Christmas cards for her to send to family and friends.  She received them a few months ago and they have now all been sent out, so I thought it was safe to share with you.

Dee picked out two CAS designs from earlier this year and asked for nine of each.  I wanted to change them up a little from my original, but as you can see from below, there's not too much difference with the card above.  I tried different sentiments, but decided that this one worked best, so stayed with it.  I did change up the snowflake to silver glimmer paper and added a circle frame from the same pretty paper.  And I added a silver foil backing to the aperture (the original was open to the inside of the card).

Here's the original ... like I said ... not too much different.  Click HERE for the original post and details.

The second card Dee picked is fun and whimsical.  I love these three winter sparrows from Lawn Fawn.  I tried using different colors for the birds from my original card, but decided I'd stick with the same ... they just work.  I did change up the perspective, making some of the new cards portrait, and I added some embossing paste "falling snow" for the background.  The birds and branch are fussy-cut and popped up on top of the card base.

Here's one of the new versions ...



and here's the card I CASE'd.  Click HERE for the original post and details.

  1. Love the birds and the "embossed" snow drops enclosed in a circle. You are my inspiration. Please keep posting. I should comment more often and not just silently admire your great cards.

  4. Gosh Loll, I don't know how you do it, but you made even CASE'd your own cards and made them better than the original ones! I loved the original ones, but I love the newer ones even more! What a great gift too for your sister. I love this idea! Hugs, Brenda

  8. With 2 such pretty cards originally, you've done a wonderful CAS. Love the snowflake treatment on #1...and all the gleam & shine. The simplicity is just elegant because of the treatment you chose. I have these little LF birds and they make me smile even when I just see the stamp. They're darling with the colors you've selected, and your paste embossing snowflakes really soar this card. Merry Christmas, TFS & Big Hugs. Thanks so very much for that stunning candle card. We loved it! Thank you for thinking of us with such a lovely card.
