No way! Yes way.
I had my first Christmas card class of 2011 on Monday night. Saying I wasn't in the mood to do Christmas cards was quite the understatement! I definitively had to get inspired by other cards to pull this off. It's called CASEing in my world. (copy and share everything). It is considered an honor to CASE someone's work as long as you give full credit to the original designer. (Who probably CASEd it from someone else, by the way, but whatever!). Anyway, most folks do not copy someone else's work EXACTLY, but take ideas from either the lay out, color combinations or the way the embellishments were used, etc, etc. As artists and designers, musicians, painters, any of the arts really, we all do this to get our inspiration. So, I wanted to post my CASEs. I CASEd my own card in this next example! (It's perfectly acceptable to do that!).
Anyway, I have two GKS here begging for breakfast, so the third card will have to wait!
