C.A.S.E. a Card Blog Hop with Scraps by Gracie

Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike.  Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.

This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 

We took one card created by Alicia  and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 

When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.

 Alicia's blog (that's me) is first in the lineup.  You can find the entire line up below.

We'd like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.

Now on with the hop!

I recently acquired this Spellbinders die and this was my first attempt at playing with it.  I wanted to give the crafters following me plenty of elements to go with on their cards.  I embossed the background and masked the middle of the background stamp to allow for my sentiment (also embossed).

I thought the sheen from the embossing along with the glitter paper and printed paper made for a unique card.  I hope you enjoy all the directions it goes.
