Christmas Card Challenges #6

The challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges is to CASE (copy and share everything) another DT member's card. 

I CASE'd our Team Coordinator's card from August 17th. Ever since Alanna posted her card, I've been wanting to do one very similar.  I just loved the clean and simple design to her card.

Now, I don't have the fancy embossing folder that she used, so I had to get a bit creative. But, overall, there's a bit of similarity to the two cards.

To get the "blank" areas on my card, I used several shims so certain areas would emboss and other areas wouldn't. Then I used a circle and rectangle die to create the embossed lines. Next I used the ornament die to emboss the image of the ornament onto the cardstock. I forgot to take pictures along the way, but I was able to snap one picture of the process.

A lot of steps . . . it might have been easier to just find and buy the embossing folder she used, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.

I really liked the Merry Christmas Die and Stamp set she used, so I bought it several months ago. That made it a bit easier to CASE her card, even though I changed the greeting.  I stamped "Christmas" and die cut "Merry" to switch it up a bit.

Whose card will you CASE?  Check out what the Design Team created this week (click here).  Hopefully we'll inspire you to "Copy and Share" one of our cards.

Here's what I used to create my card:
White Cardstock
Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder
Memory Box Ornament Die
Die-namics Circle and Rectangle Dies
Simon Says Christmas Die & Stamp Set
Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler Ink and Cardstock


  1. Your card is stunning Heather. I love how you achieved the look of the ornament in the center without any other embossing. Well done!

  2. Wow, you were so creative to get a similar look without the folder Heather. I love all the embossing and debossing you achieved.
