february card club - consider it CASEd...and simple!

February Card Club has come and gone by a week and a half, so it's better late than never to share with you the cards we made! With the busy-ness that February brought I knew that I needed to keep everything simple this month. To help with that I did some browsing of the web (and Pinterest!) to help me out with layouts and ideas. So, my theme for the night was simple and CASEd (Copy And Share Everything). Because I did keep the cards a little more simple than normal, I let the ladies make four cards instead of three. Lucky stampers, right?! And, although I did CASE these cards, I wanted to add my own little touch to each one just to make a little bit different than the original.

How I changed it up ~ I stamped and then punched out a small circle from the center of the largest shape, then popped it up with a Dimensional. I also added rhinestones to the center of each image.
Card Recipe
Stamp Set: Lacey & Lovely
Paper: Whisper White

Accessories: Dimensionals, Rhinestone Accents, Island Indigo Satin Ribbon (SAB)
Tools: N/A

How I changed it up ~ I decided to go with brighter colors (sorry about the picture...the Calypso Coral looks more red in the above picture). I also added some leaves and used Dazzling Details for the center of each flower to give it some sparkle.

How I changed it up ~ I stayed with the color scheme, but instead of lining up the circles in a row, I laid them down in a wavy pattern. I also chose to use a different image and sentiment.

I love the cards! I always do a bit of CASEing myself, but always tweak the design to make it my own.
