CASEing Myself Again

Last month, I shared with you a card I made for my daughter's friend Cara's bridal shower. I was quite happy with how that card turned out, so I decided to make another with a few variations. Really just simple color and sentiment differences. One thing I love about card making is how easy it is to make different cards once you have a basic design done.

See- it's all very much the same. But by simply changing some colors or small details, you can make cards for any occasion out of your design. From wedding to birthday... or anything else you want.

I just love these gold glittered brads. I've had them for a while just waiting to use them. This was the perfect opportunity!

On Cara's card, I used silver. Here, gold accents. But I thought embossing the sentiment in black made it stand out even better.

Just a little fraying of the designer paper edges gives an interesting contrast with the elegance of the fleur de lis die and glitter.

So there you have it- a super easy case of CASE-ing myself again!
Thanks for stopping by- as always I LOVE hearing from you! :-)

This one is beautiful too! I love the fraying of the edges and the glittered buttons, so pretty!
