Hi and welcome! Today's card is part of an Instagram hop where a lot of the crafters who have joined Michelle Lupton in previous years for her Challenge and Case Me a Christmas Card series have come together for the 2023 Case Me a Christmas Card. Michelle couldn't host the event this year so we all decided to do it for her (and special thanks to Ardyth Percy-Robb and Therese Calvird for all their work in co-ordinating).
For my card, I decided to case this card by Michelle which was from her 2019 Challenge Me a Christmas Card series, Michelle's card is further down this post. My card is also over on Instagram (karrenjnz).
I kept the grid pattern and background colours, but changed my images to gifts and the grid to a more regimented grid. I stamped, coloured and die-cut the images from an old Honey Bee Stamps set and the lightly ink-blended various colours onto the square cut-outs from the grid cover plate. I then arranged the squares and the gifts back into the grid and finished with a gold hot-foiled sentiment on black.
Thanks so much for visiting! If you haven't already, head on over to Instagram and enter #casemeachristmascard2023 to see all the other fabulous cards.
