Hello Thursday!  Today, I thought I would take a stroll through my blog and CASE something of my own.  Below is one of my favorite cards. I love the striped Misty Moonlight DSP pattern from the Dandy Garden pack and decided to use the same pattern in Bumblebee.  Below is my original card.  You can click on the picture to go to the original post.

The CASE With a Mood Change:

So that you can distinguish between the two, let’s call my featured card the Bumblebee Retro, and my original post the Moonlight Floral.  How did I CASE today’s card?

  • The card designs are identical.  All of my elements are placed in the same spot on each card.
  • The color palette is identical but used differently.
  • The patterned paper is identical except for the color and line weight.  The Bumblebee pattern line weight is thicker.
  • The floral elements are completely different.  The Bumblebee Retro card has die cut bold flowers with straight lines and the Moonlight Floral card has fussy cut softer flowers with curved lines.
  • The sentiment fonts are different.  I used a mixed font sentiment for the Bumblebee Retro card, and a more tailored font for the Moonlight Floral card.
  • Both sentiments match the “mood” of the card.
  • Speaking of moods, each card has a different vibe, right?
  • The Bumblebee Retro card is more casual than the Moonlight Floral card.

Today’s Original Card:

  • And just between us, the card below was my original version.
  • I stepped it up a bit and came up with today’s feature card.
  • The more I look at my original card, the more I like it.
  • Both versions of the Bumblebee Retro card were quick and easy.  My featured version took a half minute more because I added a couple of punched circles to the flower centers and die cut an extra Basic White flower.

So, take a stroll through your card collection and create a CASE with a Mood Change.  I think the outcome will surprise you.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
