In Any Case... with Melinda and Melissa

Join us twice a month as we CASE, “Copy And Selectively Edit”, artwork created by the Art Department of Close To My Heart as showcased in the current Idea Books and our Make It From Your Heart How-To Books.
On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, at 8 pm CT, we will direct you towards a piece of art and recreate it using the exact products or others that compliment its initial design. Tips, techniques and assembly directions will be shared in detail to help you recreate them on your own.
As you reproduce the items we have shared, post them on social media using the hashtag #ctmhinanycase. We will randomly search that hashtag and reward those who CASE our items. Winners will be announced on our blogs so be sure to follow us!


In Any Case with ... Melinda

and Melissa

Almost a month after the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog went live on May 1st and I am still reveling in all of the new products. So many wonderful pieces of art to CASE but I chose the vibrant card on page 69 of the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog. So this week I am CASEing the vibrant Big Thank You card. Oh and what do I mean by CASE? Copy and Share EVERYTHING!

Want to see this pretty card in the catalog but you don't have a copy of our new catalog? You will receive one free with your first order placed on my website or you can see it here online, or let me know you want one and I will be happy to drop one in the mail to you.

Here is my CASE'd card.

Don't you just love this card? I used a card base from our White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack (X254). The patterned paper comes from two paper packs, Beautiful Friendship (X7233B) and Central Park (X7231B) The red and white polka dot patterned paper comes from Beautiful Friendship and the other two patterned papers come from Central Park. Saffron Cardstock (X5961) was used for the yellow paper and I used White Daisy cardstock (1385) for the white panel beneath the patterned paper and the white heart. I used Black Cardstock (1386) for the Big Thank You overlay.

The Big Thank You overlay is cut using my Cuttlebug and our new Thin Cuts - A Big Thank You (Z4174)

And here are the measurements used in this card.

So, here are a few tips for making this card.

Tip 1:

The patterned paper is adhered to a 3.75" x 5" White Daisy cardstock panel.

Tip 2:

I adhered the overlay to the patterned paper with one of my favorite tools, Bonding Memories Pen (Z553).

And that is it. Adhere the panel to your cardbase and you have a super quick card that is quite eye catching!

Now please head on over to my Partner in CASEing, Melissa Robinson, and check out how to make her cute little cards. I know I am going to head over there!

Tune in again, on June 14th, for the next episode and be sure to CASE one/all of the artwork we highlight and tag it  #ctmhinanycase on social media. We'll come looking for you and you may be a prize winner!

  1. Love you card. What did you use to sandwich the thin cut with to get it to create a clean cut through your cuttlebug?


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog post!
