Case me a Christmas Card with Therese Calvird

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 Therese Calvird. I have CASEd two of her cards that you can check out HERE and HERE

 All of the products I used are linked below :)  

 This is the card I Cased for my first one:

And I couldn't resist Caseing another card!

 I used a Hero Arts Holly stamp that is discontinued, so I have linked to other stamps that I think would work well on a card like this.

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: White embossed foliage, matching dies, white sentiment on vellum, navy,

Include: white embossing, foliage, white sentiment on vellum

Modify: green, holly

Exclude: Navy, matching dies

Spin: ink blending around edge, sequins

Therese also made a CASE of one of my cards - you can find it HERE


Thanks for visiting :)  


  1. YaY, your cards are amazing Michelle! I especially like the added gold on the background of the first card. It totally makes me want to get out my inks and start playing! Thank you once again for inviting me to join your Christmas series this year, as always, it's been a blast!

  2. Love your take on Therese's card. Beautiful cards.

  3. A great take on Therese's card, Michelle! So elegant!
