CASEing a Card

CASE stands for "Copy and Share Everything".  Generally when you CASE a card, you change something slightly: the color, the size, the stamps used, the embellishments.  I like to CASE because I am better at adapting a design than creating my own.

I recently saw this card online.  I thought it was beautiful.  So last night I CASEd it. Here is my result:
I wish the colors showed better.  They're really closer to the colors in the original.  But you get the idea.

I thought the colors would be good for a winter card.  I used my snowflake embossing folder and inked it up, then embossed, giving the snowflakes a light blue color.  The second layer is a snowflake/flower stamp.  On the sentiment I used blue gems instead of pearls. I'm going to have to try this with other colors now.  I'm thinking maybe grey, black, and red.

Here's one I made a few days later in black and ivory.  Elegant!
