Casing Amanda Reddicliffe

When I saw Amanda's Just Add Christmas card, my first thought was "I must case that!"  It's so gorgeous, and uses three elements that I just adore - Crumb Cake cardstock (the cardstock formerly known as Kraft), heat embossing and that scrumptious wide striped grosgrain ribbon.  Heavenly!

Here are my two versions (I had to play around because I don't have the sets Amanda used... they're now on my ever expanding wishlist!):

My bows aren't as good as Amanda's... *sniff*

Now... is it poor form to send someone a CASE of their card for Christmas??  ;-)

Stamp sets - Contempo Christmas, Serene Snowflakes, Snowy Days (There She Goes)
Cardstock - Crumb Cake
Inks - Versamark, Black Stazon
Accessories - White embossing powder, heat tool, Red Riding Hood Striped Grosgrain Ribbon



  1. they say imitation is the highest form of flattery! I think they are both gorgeous! Amanda's too cute as well!

  2. I think Amanda would be flattered to receive a CASE card for Chrissie.

    Both lovely cards & gorgeous bows!!!

  3. lol you are a crack up Danielle... gorgeous cards both of them!

  4. WOW. These are so gorgeous Danielle. I feel honored that one of MY idols thinks I'm CASE-worthy. And your bows ARE stunning. I have never been able to pull that bow off since. Lol. xx Amanda

  5. They are both gorgeous - so simple yet classic.

  6. WOW Danielle, i LOVE the second one and your bows are awesome!!! Super job and I'm with you that card of AManda's was/is stunning!!!
    Hope your Christmas season is a wonderful one thus far!
