In Any CASE...with Melinda & Melissa

Join us twice a month as we CASE, “Copy And Selectively Edit”, artwork created by the Art Department of Close To My Heart as showcased in the current Idea Books and our Make It From Your Heart How-To Books.

On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, at 7 pm CST, we will direct you towards a piece of art and recreate it using the exact products or others that compliment its initial design. Tips, techniques and assembly directions will be shared in detail to help you recreate them on your own.

As you reproduce the items we have shared, post them on social media using the hashtag #ctmhinanycase. We will randomly search that hashtag and reward those who CASE our items. Winners will be announced on our blogs so be sure to follow us!


Today I am recreating this fun and simple card made with new products from the Oh What Fun product line. In the Idea Book it is showcased with other beautiful pieces of artwork so go check it out on page 65.

If you don't have a hard copy, don't worry! You can flip through the virtual pages of the Idea Book by clicking here. Want a hard copy? Contact me for details on how to get one in your hands!

My partner in CASEing, Melinda Everitt, is highlighting a fun card - that you will love - so be sure to keep reading to the bottom of this post.

Sometimes "simple and clean" is best, in my opinion. That is exactly what is taking place with this card design.

Just a 1 1/4" piece of the striped pattern paper, three die cut ornaments - and an adorable stamp set, and some Rasberry Baker's Twine are all it took to create it. Isn't that awesome?!
I have already created quite a few layouts and cards using this stamp set, Oh What Fun Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts. I especially love, and can appreciate, the Thin Cuts that coordinate. They make it so easy to add these fun images to your creations. (You can also purchase the stamp set by itself.)

The cheerful colors of the paper, stamp images and twine create for a fun and festive Christmas card that is super easy to make!
