CASE Histories

We're having a fun challenge this month at my store - we're calling it CASE History and want you to find a project from your first year of blogging and CASE it to see how far your style has come.  I started blogging in 2009 but if you look back, you'll see that there were no craft projects that year - I started off a food blogger but I knew I wanted to blog about crafts too so called my blog Craftilicious - crafty and delicious combined!   So I chose a project from 2010 - a wedding card I made in a box style and you can find the original post here.

I made this box card with the floral frame adhered to a fold in the middle so it had 3 layers and a 3D feel and it was this technique I decided to CASE and update on my new version and this is what came out of it!


I used a nestie to cut a couple of frames and then went full on die cut mode to create the sea scene.  The sailboat is adhered to the dotted paper on the base card, the rainbow and small cloud are stuck to the first frame and the larger cloud on the second frame.  This shot shows the dimension to full effect.

So you may think that the new card bears no resemblance whatsoever to the original - well it doesn't - but it was inspired by the 3D design of the original so it still counts as a CASE study - hope that encourages you to have a go and play along.

As my card is entirely made with die cuts - I am also going to enter it into Virginia's View challenge this month.


  1. This is AWESOME!! I love the scene that you created with diecut! The dimensions are tremendous!! Thanks so much for playing Virginia's View Challenge!

  2. I always wondered where your blog name came from!!! I could see straight away how you used the frame from your older card. love the colourful scene you made and thanks for a great challenge :0)
