CASology: Parent

Hello! It's time for a new cue from CASology!

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I decided to create a card that I could send for the holiday. (Most likely my mother-in-law because my Mom creeps on my social media!)

I started this card by creating the card base first. I knew I wanted to add an extra little something to it to make it super special. I just love these coverplates from Lil Inker Designs so I settled on this pretty stitched spiral plate. They're a fantastic way to add interest to a plain card base without adding any extra layers or bulk. I simply ran my card base through my Big Shot with my coverplate and I got this incredibly pretty card! I also cut out a circle from some vellum so that my focal image wouldn't get lost in the stitching on the front of the card.

I set these aside and then used my MISTI to stamp my floral image. I colored it in with my Copics and then used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut it out. Then I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment on a strip of black cardstock in Versamark ink. I heat embossed in white powder and then used my scissors to snip a flag on the end. I added a dab of Multi Medium Matte to the end of the flag to adhere it to the back of my floral image.

I adhered my floral image with attached flag to the vellum circle using some foam tape and then added a little bit more Multi Medium Matte behind the image on the back of the vellum to adhere it to the card base without the adhesive showing through on the front. I finished it off by adding just a few Lemon Drop jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

I know this is a little more elaborate than I normally go for, but I wanted to make something extra special for Mother's Day!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Gorgeous Mother's Day card, Rachel! Your stitched spirals in the background work perfectly with these beautiful blooms, and I love that you used a vellum circle behind them...so clever!

  2. Oh this is gorgeous! Your coloring is always so wonderfully blended - I'm in awe!
