CASE Study Challenge #73

Hello and welcome to the second week, with our January Muse, Jen Rzasa! Here's the fabulous card that I picked for us all to be inspired with:

Negative die cutting is a huge trend these days, and can produce some spectacular results - as you can see! We challenge you to give it a try too, but whether you do or not, we can't wait to check out how this card inspired YOU!

Maureen Plut

Teneale Williams

Now all you have to do is play with us!

Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC73), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose authors of the four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!
The CASE Study Design Team
