Case me a Christmas Card with Gayatri Murali

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 Gayatri Murali. I have CASEd one of her cards that you can check out HERE

 All of the products I used are linked below :)  

I used a layering stamp set from Hero Arts with Hero Arts inks and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.


This is the card 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: Floral stencil, black sentiment banner with white embossing, sequins

Include: Flowers, black sentiment banner

Modify: layered stamps

Exclude: Stencil, sequins

Spin: Poinsettias

Gayatri also Cased one of my cards - you can find it HERE


I'm submitting this card to the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp, where the theme is to layer it up.




Thanks for visiting :) 


  1. Beautiful CASe Michelle, another wonderful creation

  2. Always such fabulous cards...thank you Michelle. Such an inspiration.
    I was wondering if I could have some instructions as to how you made that beautiful "You're the Best" card above. I just love it. It is so different and I have not seen have stencil like this or how you got the 'thickness' of the petals. Thank you in anticipation and regards from South Australia "Down Under"....caroline

    1. The “you’re the best” card was made by Gayatri Murali - the link to her post is in my blog post above.

  3. Thank you very much...warm regards...caroline
