What Does CASE a Card Mean?
Whether you’re new to card making, or you’ve been creating with inks and cardstock and stamps for years, you may not know what CASE means! Or how to apply it to your card making.
CASE typically means Copy and Share Everything (or Copy and Steal Everything, which doesn’t sound as nice, but it’s ok…we’re card makers, so it’s with the best of intentions!).
Now you know what CASE stands for, but how to you apply it to your card making hobby?
Inspiration is everywhere, you can peruse Pinterest or Instagram for hours and get ideas, but you don’t want to flat out copy other people’s work (if you do, don’t post it online and take credit or sell it or teach a class on it). It’s always good etiquette to credit the person you have CASED, or taken inspiration from.
So how do you get inspiration from other crafters’ work, but make sure it’s your own, too?
Rule of 3’s!
I like to use the rule of 3s. Take a card idea and CHANGE at least 3 things about the card you are inspired by. Change the colors, the layout, the stamps used, techniques used, etc.
Or, TAKE 3 things from the inspiration card. Use the same layout, stamps, colors….
As you do this, you will learn about card making, supplies, design and you will develop your own style.
I love Ann’s beautiful card and I chose to case several elements, the layout, the placements and the die bundle. Using Crumb Cake and and the beautiful Gold Speciality Paper takes it from Vintage to Modern all in one hit! Where Ann used a card panel, I used the word stamp for my background and stamped it in Crumb Cake. I coloured basic Jewels with Dark Pale Papaya Stampin Blend and added Sequins from the Sparkle and Shine Sequins Assortment Come Play with us and share your projects on Instagram under the hashtag #gdp340
