Each Thursday my Border Buddy Patsy Waggoner from the US and I take turns creating a card that we CASED from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue. CASE means Copy And Selectively Edit. The beautiful projects from the concept artists from Stampin' Up! are a great way to be inspired! When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both.
In my card today I cased a card on page 80 from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue.
The original card features the Floating & Fluttering Bundle (page 61) from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue. My card features the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. This card looks complicated but it's really easy to make.
