Just in CASE Thursday, Patsy Waggoner (USA) here.
Each Thursday my Border Buddy Alison Solven from Canada and I take turns creating a card that we CASED from a current Stampin’ Up! catalog. CASE stands for (Copy And Selectively Edit). We like to show you how you can use the paper crafting projects in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog to inspire you!
Mango Melody is bright and bold and can make a great statement. I love the POP it gives this card.
When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both.
Today I used the same colors but changed out the stamp sets. The concept artist used the Floating & Fluttering stamp set and Fluttering Dies. I used the Butterfly Gala stamp set for the butterflies, the Always in My Heart for the leaves and the Forever Blooms for the sentiment.
