CASology: Grow

Hello and welcome! I have a new project for you today featuring the brand new cue from CASology!

It's officially spring and that automatically makes me think of beautifully blooming flowers. That's where I took my inspiration for this card.

1. I cut and folded a card base from white cardstock and stamped a rose background stamp in Versamark on the front, heat embossing in white.

2. On a separate piece of paper, I stamped my roses and leaves in Versamark and then heat embossed those in white.

3. I used distress inks and ink blending tool to add color to my roses and leaves.

4. I used my scissors to fussy cut around each of the images (even though I hate fussy cutting!).

5. I arranged my images in a cluster that I liked and then used Washi tape to keep them together so I could add liquid adhesive to the back without losing the arrangement. After adding the adhesive, I replaced the cluster on the front of my card and pressed it down, then carefully removed my Washi tape.

6. I stamped my sentiment on black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white, then cut it down into a strip that fit the front of my card.

7. I adhered my sentiment strip with some foam tape.

8. I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins across the front of the card.

I love how a white-on-white background adds some subtle interest without completely overpowering the card. It's one of my favorite things to do when I want a little something extra for a rather plain looking card.


  1. OMGosh Rachel, I love your CAS card design! Love your embossed background and your pretty flowers. Your card is beautiful!

  2. Beautiful coloring on your roses and your background is so pretty, Rachel! Love your take on the cue card!

  3. I adore the texture you get from the white embossing. Such an elegant design, and so apt for a MD card!
