Case me a Christmas Card with Tristan Dawes

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 Tristan Dawes. I have CASEd one of her cards that you can check out HERE

 All of the products I used are linked below :)  

 This is the card I Cased:

 Ardyth Percy-Robb 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: angled panels of blue, yellow, green and orange patterned paper, with white embossed sentiment on black strip  

Include: colours, angled elements

Modify: used inks and stenciling instead of paper piecing

Exclude: patterned paper

Spin: One layer card


Tristan has Cased one of my cards, too - you can find her post HERE.

Thanks for visiting :)
