Playing along with CASE-ing Christmas!

Our CASE-ing Christmas class has been a huge hit over at StampNation!  Members have been so inspired.  Mojo is in high gear and they are creating some really awesome cards.  Not only that, but I have even gotten inspired to head back to my stamp table to CASE my DT sistahs over there. 

My card today is a CASE of Heather's CASE-ing Christmas CASE #4 and Allison's card for the SOA.

When I CASE a card, I'm not bringing a picture of it to my stamp table to copy, rather I grab a few ideas from it and I head off to create.  I want the end result to be something unique, a creation that I can call my own.  That is the idea I have really been stressing in my videos for the CASE-ing Christmas class.

From Heather's card I pulled the following ideas.
  • The layout, I love the slanted top panel!
  • Snowflakes
  • Glitter 
The basic design of Allison's card is very similar to Heather's, except it is a one layer card.  From Allison I un-shamelessly (I know that's not a word but I couldn't come up with something else that would work!  My proofreading/copywriter sister would be appalled! haha!) stole her beautiful color combo and background stamping.  I give her complete credit for that!  From the moment I saw this card, I knew that I was going to have to make it!  It's my very favorite of all of the cards made for the release of the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection.
