C.A.S. E. card and get well soon

17th December 2012

While checking out the entries for Unstampabelles Christmas theme the other day, I came across a card which I immediately thought I'd have to CASE. The blog name is Magagi's Crafty Bits, and you can find her original card either amongst the entries on Unstampabelles blog site, or, go to the Magagi's blog here:

I used my Spellbinder Poinsettia dies for the flower, and glitter paper both of which are available from Blue Edge Crafts.

The second card I made for a fellow resident of our retirement estate who has just had  hip replacement surgery.

The stamp set used is Flourishe's 'Mix 'n' Mugs' stamp set.
I used Copics to colour it in, and then die cut with a spellbinders die. Mounted onto an embossed background. I sponged the white cardstock with a pale blue before removing from the die (after embossing) and finished with pearls and corner stickers.

I'm already thinking of the Christmas cards I want to make for NEXT year! how sad is that? so many ideas, and this Christmas is done and dusted in regards to cards anyways.
Hope you have a look at all the beautiful entries in Unstampabelles Christmas challenge, and also at Magagi'es blog.
While I've CASED Magagie's card, this doesn't mean I don't think there are no other stunning entries, there are so many, there really is, this particular card just struck me with it's simplicity of design, and speedy construction, perfect for that last minute card.
Happy Crafting.

So funny Beth as I was inspired by Magagi's card also. Love your version of her style. Get well card is wonderful too. You scare me that you are thinking of next years Xmas cards already. I haven't even finished this year.
