Totally CASEd this one

So, you know how you see something you really like and can’t think of anything you could do to make it better.  That is certainly one way to CASE a card you’ve come across.  Copy and Share Everything.  That was the ‘case’ (haha) when I saw my card today on a post by Brian King.  You can see his post here, and since I know Brian, I know he will be tickled pink that I cased him.


About my card
1. For my new readers, you might not know that I have a full time job outside of my stamping hobby.  I have a staff of 18 wonderful people, 16 of which are men.  I make each of my staff a birthday card that most proudly, I like to think it is proudly, display on the shelves in their office.  This means that I can’t, nor would I really, make two of the same card for any of them.  Add to those 16 men my husband, father, three brothers, a brother in law and two sons in law and I’m ALWAYS on the look out for masculine birthday card ideas.  Brian’s certainly fit that bill with the blue/greens and non-fussy layout.  Perfect.

2.  I used the star and Yay from the Circle Card Thinlits Die and the yarn ribbon from Sweet Sorbet Accessory Kit, a Sale-a-bration item you can earn for free if you purchase $50 or more.  Who doesn’t like Free.

3.  The whole gradient, or ombre look is very big right now.  Going from light to dark or dark  to light.  I prefer light to dark and did my card that way.  The thing about CASE is you can copy exactly, you can copy mostly, or you can just copy a portion.  We stampers are very giving that way.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  If you would like to order any of the products I used, just click on any of the images below to be taken directly to my Stampin’ Up!store.
