Cased February Christmas Cards

Hello!  Today I have my February Christmas Cards. As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so we don't have to make any during the busy holiday season.  I make four Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have about fifty at the end of the year.
With the month of February being so short, I  unfortunately have no original ideas for my cards;I just wanted to get them done,  so I cased some of my favorite cards of some new stamps I just purchased.

My first card I cased from the fabulous Jodi Collins.  I kept the exact same layout and glittered the ball with Crystal Effects and glitter just like she did (what a fabulous idea, it really works well).  The only thing I changed was the papers and button.  

 This card was cased from Silke Ledlow.  I kept the same layout, but changed all the papers and colors.
 This card was cased from Barbara Anders. I loved how she didn't color her image.  I thought that was so effective.  It really makes the ornament and the meaning of the sentiment stand out.  I changed the ribbon treatment and papers on my card, but obviously kept the same layout and concept.  The ornament was cut out of white paper and covered in glitter, then glued back on the the main image panel.
 And finally my last card was cased from one of my favorite stampers Dawn Burnworth.  I kept the same layout, but changed the paper, trims, and Nesties to what I already had in stock.
Have a great day! Amy

  4. You are so sweet. Thank you. I am so jealous you have so many done. I have got to start doing this too. Last year I was great at it but not so much this year. Lovely job.

  5. Can't say that I'm ready to even think about Christmas, but these are all gorgeous, Amy. It would be impossible to pick a favorite. Each one is so pretty. Miss you! So I'm glad you are right here continue to create pretties!

  6. Oh Amy I wish I could do this as well. Every year I set out with good intentions for chrissy cards but I never do it. I think I might just have to use you as my inspiration to get them done lol!!
