Happy New Year - Nothing Better Than Stamp Set

Hello Stampers,

It's Just in CASE Thursday, Patsy here!

Alison and I would like to wish you a Happy New Year.  We also want to take this time to say thank you to each and everyone of you that has placed orders this past year,  With out our customers we couldn't do what we love.  I am sure you are like me and hoping that 2021 won't be as isolating as 2020.  Even in the midst of the pandemic people have found a bit more time to stamp and connect the old fashioned way through card sending.

Today's card I CASED (copied and selectively edited) from page 58 of the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  You will be able to start ordering from the mini on January 5.  If you placed an order from me in the past year you should have received your copy in the mail along with the 2021 Sale-a-Brations brochure.

When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both.  Today I changed the stamp set and the die-cut backgrounds otherwise the colors and layout are the same.  You can see how simply change a couple of things can give the card a totally different look.

If you haven't noticed I love to add a few sequins to my cards when ever I can.  It just give is a little something extra.  These are from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins, so easy to grab and simply stick them where you want them.  Always remember to use an odd number when embellishing.
