In Any CASE...with Melinda & Melissa

Welcome to this episode of...

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 showcasing beautiful Christmas cards made with the  Workshop Your Way Mistletoe Wishes Cardmaking KitThis is how they are showcased in the Idea Book on page 52. Don't they look festive and beautiful?

Did you know you get an exclusive stamp set in the kit, as well as full-color directions for assembling 12 cards, 6 each of 2 designs? You do!

The Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder makes all the difference on these greeting cards. It adds the perfect touch to these Christmas cards that are guaranteed to bring some sparkle to the holidays. 

It is not included in the main kit, so be sure to review the Additional Supplies Needed list provided through the link. 

This card was simple to create, yet draws great attention. The holly was embossed and some simple stamped images, plus Gold Glitter Gems, provided a finishing touch. 

I love the ornament on this card, stamped in Candy Apple Ink. Both the "Merry Moments" and upper portion of the ornament were embossed.

TIP: To determine where the string and bow were to be stamped, so it connected perfectly with the ornament, I used the ornament image to see how far I was going to place it from the left edge of the banner. Then, I stamped it accordingly and the rest followed.

I love the design of this card, with the "wishing you" banner going through the ornament.

Here is a close-up of the embossed image. The "tinsel" provides that glittery effect that is perfect. 

You can see the contents of this kit, including the images contained in the exclusive stamp set

Do you have anyone on your Christmas card list who would enjoy receiving one in their mailbox? I would!

Melinda is teaching you how to make this beautiful card using a wonderful and popular new product. You'll want to head over to Melinda's Blog to see her awesome creation!

Wishing you a great end to your week!
