CASE’D??- Copy And Share Everything

Hi once again peeps,

Today I thought I would explain an evermore popular term in the crafting world – CASE’ing or CASE’d.  CASE simply means to Copy And Share Everything. Basically if you are happy to , then share your work others so they can interpret it or reproduce it in their own style.

However, if this an original idea it is always best to ask the initial creator if they mind you using their idea – most specifically if you plan to sell or Blog about it yourself. Most people will just ask you to link to their post or share and mention that they inspired your creation. For some however it is a main part of their own business and may have an Angel policy or similar, perhaps saying you can sell a limited amount of them or add a reference to themselves on your item.

The following card is CASE’d from an older copy of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue. Of the supplies I used however, only one item is actually a Stampin’ Up! product.

CASE’ing a product doesn’t mean that you have to recreate a card exactly as the original one that you have seen. You can of course, but you could just take elements from a project that you have seen: A layout,  a colour combination or a theme even.

I pretty much used the layout from the original card to create my CASE’d card.

  • A white panel with a pop of colour at the top and bottom edges.
  • A stamped floral image with colouring: I used a non-branded wooden stamp from my own stash.
  • Strips of patterned paper were swapped with washi tape and a twine wrap.
  • A paper pennant with a button for embellishment.

I used washi tape to decorate the inside of the card – I added a white panel to write on – and also the envelope.

I hope that you have found this post helpful – I encourage you all to take a look at the ideas out there and transform those ideas into your own style 🙂

Take care and Happy Crafting! 🙂
