Don't you just love (or hate) acronyms!!  I'm familiar with the concept of CASE and have often done it but didn't really know what the letters actually stood for and thought I'd find out.  Apparently it stands for 'copy and share (or steal) everything' - I prefer the word share I must say.

I spotted one such CASEd card on Loll's blog and although I don't have the same dies to use I've made a card very much along the same lines using up a scrap of DOX background left over from another project.  I stamped an image onto this piece and trimmed it to size before popping over the base card which had a couple of die cuts added behind the image, a stamped sentiment and finally a die cut treble clef.  This is far from my usual style of card, mainly because I have trouble keeping grubby fingermarks off all that white space - managed it this time though.

I was thinking because quite a few snippets have been used this card would be good for the Playground until I realised that this is the 'alternate' week where there is inspiration from a guest designer.  Silly me, but do hop over to see the pretty card and also of course the announcement regarding the lucky winner.


Stamp - from very old set by The Stamp Man - classical musical instruments
Treble Clef - Marianne die which I've had a very long time
Sentiment - from same stamp set as trombone
Background diecuts - Tattered Lace die
