Today’s simple card with an embossed background is one of my Copy and Share Everything videos! You’ll want to check it out to see how to make 3 different designs with just one idea!
Have you ever CASEd a card?
If you have, you know you can make them exactly like they did or change it up.
I change them up. Why?
So I can give you all kinds of ideas. I really want you to see if there’s something you already own to make one like it! To find out more, click here.

Or why not come watch me live? Just head on over to my Facebook page every Thursday at 11 am MT to see what I’m CASEing!
This was last week’s card.
Judy won that card last week. It was really easy to enter her name too. She just guessed in advance what design I was going to be making and her name went into the hat!
Make a Simple Card with an Embossed Background
Today’s card is light and cheery, but I also shared a Christmas and and fall design using this same layout and techniques. Be sure to watch the video to the end to see how different they look!

Here you can really see the detail the blending brush picks up when I swirled the Mint Macaron ink on top of it.
Take a peek at the original card I CASEd from page 152 of the 2021-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue! Looks different, but the same, doesn’t it?

Want me to CASE a card for you?
This card was one I picked to CASE but I’d love to see if there’s one you’d like to see made. Let me know which one it is and maybe I can give it a try on my next CASE the Cattie.

This is such a fresh and pretty card. The other two I showed have a bit more depth and more intense colour. Plus a few different tricks to add even more interest. Yet every one of them is wonderful – and different from the Stampin’ Up! sample.
I’d love it if you made up a simple card with an embossed background like this one and shared it with other folks over on my Facebook page – let’s see what you come up with too!
