CASology #342 Mother

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. Mother’s day is this week end and we have the perfect cue word to get you ready with you Mother’s day cards.

Week 342 - Mother.jpg

Here’s my take:


For this card i first stamped this gorgeous butterfly by Tubby Crafts with alcohol marker friendly ink (you can use Memento Tuxedo Black or Tubby Crafty Jet Black) on a white card stock (Use an alcohol marker firendly card stock like Nennah Solar White).


I then colored the image with copic markers and then fussy cut the image leaving a whtite background all around. I then cut two die cuts from the letter “M” using the bold Alphabet dies by Die cuts and more. I also die cut two “M”s out of a craft sheet and then adhered to the paper die cuts.


On a card front which I die cut using wonky rectangle die by Avery elle, I adhered both the die cuts of the letter “M” which already had the foam cuts underneath. And in middle of both the letters I adhered the butterfly with foam squares to match the dimention. I lifted the wings of the butterfly for added interest and more dimenson.


I then added the “i love you ‘ sentiement by MFT Stamps in black to finish the card before adhering it to a card base.

Now it’s your turn to jump into action!

I hope my card inspires you to join us at CASology and gets you to crafting. Do  play along with us, just remember to keep it CAS. The following CAS guidelines should be of help when creating your design:
