Case me a Christmas Card with Kelly Bates

Welcome to Case me a Christmas Card for 2021 - a Christmas Card blog series! 

From October to December, I will link to a series of guest cardmakers on my blog. I will CASE one of their cards, and they will CASE one of mine! CASE stands for either Copy And Share Everything, or Copy And Selectively Edit. It's about getting inspiration from cardmaking friends, but making a new card that is our own. And, of course, the card we each make has to be a Christmas card!

Background

In November 2016, I started this a little series on my blog. It started with me wanting to challenge myself to step outside my comfort zone with my Christmas cardmaking, so I asked friends to challenge me to do something different. 2016 challenges included using embroidery thread on a card, making a food themed card, making a geeky Christmas card (it had the Tardis on it) and making a dinosaur themed card. 

In 2017, I asked some of my cardmaking friends to join me with these challenges. Then, in 2020, I changed things up a bit by asking each of my guests to CASE one of my cards and I would CASE one of theirs. Ardyth Percy Robb made a video in 2020 (linked here) of a 5 step process that I use all the time when I am making a CASE of anybody's card, so I encourage you to check out her video!

Little girl birthday card for Paper Rose Studio

 Hello! Today, I'm sharing a clean and simple, one layer birthday card.


I stamped the Little Puppy Girl clear stamp in black ink, and then stamped her again onto some masking paper and masked her. I ink blended some Distress Oxide ink around her, before removing the mask and colouring her with Copic markers. I added a shadow on her left, and stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the Modern Poppies stamp set underneath.

Release day at Picket Fence Studios

It's release day at Picket Fence Studios! 

There are some awesome new products in this release, including dies for Mini Slim Line cards!

 My favourite would have to be the watercolor roses stamp set - here are two cards I made using it.

The background on this card is white cardstock that I coated with Paper Glitz Pink Prom Night. I then cut it with one of the dies from the mini slim line stitched and scalloped rectangles die cutting system.
