CASE Me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton

I am so excited to be sharing a card today as part of Michelle Lupton‘s CASE Me a Christmas Card series. For those not familiar with the term, CASE = Copy and Selectively Edit (or Copy and Share Everything). For this, I have taken a card I chose from Michelle’s amazing array of cards and used it to inspire a new Christmas card. HERE is her card (also shared below with Michelle’s permission).

I completely fell in love with the Faux Tiles and wanted to try something similar. Since she used a pretty cover plate die, I also chose a new favorite of mine, the Fancy Flakes Cover Plate Die by Honey Bee Stamps. I thought that the shine on her card so just so cool so I got to work finding a way to give a similar effect. On my background panel, I brushed on Distress Oxide Inks in Peacock Feathers and Broken China. I used Versamark Ink on top of it all and added clear embossing powder. Just like Michelle, I did that a total of three times to get it evenly embossed and totally shine.

Where Michelle added shimmer to her colored panel, I thought the white needed a bit more, so I sprayed on Hero Arts Shimmer Spray. I am totally addicted to this right now and it is pretty much finding itself on everything! My sentiment is from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays set and dies. I inked some more paper with the same colors, cut with the dies. I also stamped with Peacock Feathers for the “Merriest” panel. More shimmer spray on everything, of course! This has so much shine in person with the shimmer spray and the embossed panel! I felt like a few pearls were the perfect finish after positioning my sentiment to mimic Michelle’s.

Here is Michelle’s beautiful Faux Tile Card:

Michelle also CASE’d one of my cards and I cannot wait to see the result! You can see her card HERE. Thanks for coming over to visit today! See you again soon.
