Here's a funny (...sorta...) story: We're moving into the second week of the CASE challenge at Jingle Belles, so I headed over to Stephanie's Blog to choose a card I wanted to recreate, saw this gorgeous CAS masterpiece, et voila, job done!

Except... when I went back to link to that post, I realized, it wasn't actually a Jingle Belles card. Rats. I'm happy with how it came out, though; and it features a whole bunch of gorgeous Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape, so I'll show you anyway:

Meanwhile, there are about a gazzillion other Stephanie cards made especially for Jingle Belles that I love enough to make a version of; in fact, here's one now, made for our Stars and/or Stripes challenge in July:

Ok, so... I was pretty faithful to Stephanie's design, though instead of using a bunch of star and stripe patterns to unify my inchies, I chose to combine papers from Prima's "Christmas in the Country" collection, which has plenty of nice small motifs. Since my squares are just a smidge over an inch AND I matted them as well, I elected to move my sentiment up on top of my grid to keep my card size just under A7. I did scatter some Eyelet Outlet Star Brads and Sequins on top, though, because that's one of my favorite elements in the inspo card.

Be sure to hop over to Jingle Belles and see which card of mine Stephanie has remade this week and start scrolling through to choose something YOU would like to CASE!
