Addicted to CAS Guest Designer

I'm so thrilled to be joining the Addicted to CAS team as a guest designer this week! And here's the code word...

This was perfect because I was in need of a little inspiration for this year's Mother's Day card. This gave me the perfect opportunity to pull out some of my favorite products and create something just for my Mom.

I started this card by cutting a panel to the exact size of an A2 card front - 4 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches. I stamped my floral image with my MISTI and then colored it in with my Copics. I adhered the panel to a card base using my glue runner. (I attached it to a card base because the Copics bled through the back and I didn't want it to show on the inside of my card.)

I cut out my Mom die cuts from white cardstock and the shadow from vellum. I used my Multi Medium Matte to adhere the white words on top of the vellum shadow cut. Then I added a little more Multi Medium Matte to the back of the vellum and adhered it to the panel. The sentiment was stamped on Slate cardstock using Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white powder. I used some foam tape to adhere the strip below my die cut sentiment.

Super simple, but the perfect card for my Mom!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join the Addicted to CAS challenge with your own creations!
