TIME OUT #75 - CASE-ing Ksenija

Our new challenge this fortnight at Time Out is all bout CASE-ing this very pretty card from Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin - a wonderful designer with whom I am sure you are already familiar.

We have a great guest designer with us this week as well - M@rjan is joining us to inspire you with her gorgeous creativity - so make sure you check out her CASE in this challenge as well as her other wonderful designs.

Here is my card:

This is one of the card designs that I mass produced for the holidays - the greeting was printed with my laser printer and then foiled in red - hard to capture in the main photo so I took another one to show it:

The frame was die cut with a Winnie and Walter die, the tree with a Clearly Besotted die, and the star with a MFT die. When I was mass producing, I taped them all together so I didn't have to line them up on each card. I backed the open space from the die cuts with Scor Tape and added some glitter. The SSS Fog card base was stamped tone on tone with an MFT background stamp.

The elements that I CASE-d are the colour scheme, the design, and the tone-on-tone background. I can't wait to see what elements you CASE into your design.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love the simple, yet impressive look of this card Jill! Great job as always!

  2. Fabulous CASE, really like how you picked up on the CAS swirl of the flowers and substituted for the tree, also the subtle background using this strip paper-great CASE x

  3. I love these treeshape from the moment I saw it first... and placed like this it looks so beautiful! Hugs, Gerrina

  4. Love your clean CASE card! So elegant!

  5. Wonderful CASEing, Jill! You felt it right, I was still a bit in Christmas mood while creating my card ;) - Sweet Kobylkin

  6. Beautiful, Jill ... crisp, clean, shiny and so wonderfully shimmery! Hugs, Anita :)

  7. Gorgeous card, and so perfect for mailing. I really love the combination of the red foiling and green glitter. So very striking. And, I think I have seen this card close up....(thx)

  8. This is a wonderful CASE - what a great CAS card! I love that you saw a tree in Ksenija's design, and there you go with your superhero glitter skills! You are the queen! I would be curious to know how you did the foiling. That is not in my repertoire...
