Case me a Christmas Card with Donna Mikasa

Welcome to Case me a Christmas Card for 2020 - a slight variation on my annual Challenge me 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 Copy And Share Everything - but it's not about just copying a card. 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!

Today, my guest is Donna Mikasa.  I have CASEd one of her cards that you can check out HERE

 All of the products I used are linked below :)  

I used the Poinsettia Star stamp from Picket Fence Studios, gold embossed and coloured with Coipic markers, and a sentiment from Hero Arts.

Here's the card of Donna's that I Cased: 

 Ardyth came up with a genius acronym to help you make a Case of a card without making a direct copy of it - LIMES. I am going to be using this acronym for all my Cases from now on: 

List: Gold embossed flower, coloured with pink and green, white panel with window, stitched border, green card

Include: gold embossing, pink flower, window

Modify: poinsettia, more yellow-toned pink, larger window

Exclude: stitched border, green card base and green colouring

Spin: Christmas!

 Donna has also Cased one of my cards - you can check it out HERE!


Thanks for visiting :)
