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 72 of the Annual Inspirations catalog. So this week I am CASEing the very masculine deer 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.

This card was very easy to make. I used a card base from our White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack (X254). I used the New England Ivy striped patterned paper from our Enchantment Fundamentals paper pack (Z3352). It is kind of hard to see in my picture but the green striped paper is matted with Linen Cardstock (X5946).  The stamp set I used is Hunting for Words (B1571).  The ducks are stamped repeatedly on Almond Cardstock (X5949) with Almond Ink (Z2827).  Don't they add so much interest to the background?  The deer is stamped using Nutmeg Ink (Z2834) on Almond Cardstock and fussy cut.  I applied a little tan watercolor to the buck to add some shading using our Watercolor Set (Z3132).

The gold shape is cut out of Gold Foil (Z3365) using our You are Here Cricut Cartridge Collection (Z3389).  I used the green twine from the Enchantment Ribbon Collection (Z3363) and finished the card with a Gold Pearl (Z3371).

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 July 12th, 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!
