CASology Week 221: CURE

Welcome to Week 221 at CASology!

I wish we had a cure for all the scary health diagnosis hitting friends and family, but sometimes all we can offer is hugs.

For this card, I stamped the PTI Big Hugs image in pink first and then finished the sentiment in black. I wanted to keep the sentiment as the focal point so die cut it with a mini-scalloped stitched circle die and popped it up on the card base.

Before adhering the circle, spun Sugar Distress Ink was lightly sponged on the card base to help the sentiment circle pop a bit more. A few pink gems and sequins add a bit of interest.

We are looking forward to seeing how CURE inspires you -  just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until Monday at noon (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog. 

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I love how you subtly inked the background in that soft pink. Beautiful!

  2. I'm in total agreement; sometimes hugs are the best remedy to scary health issues. Such a perfect card, Jacquie. The soft and lovely pink behind your sentiment panel really feels like a hug. This is a fabulous card! Just love it. Bev

  3. This is a wonderfully simple card. I really like how your sponged background adds depth to your popped up circle.

  4. Absolutely perfect CAS card Jacquie!

  5. Very gorgeous CAS card Jacquie ! May be we cannot cure everything with hugs but I'm sure that to know that people care a lot for you, it helps a lot to cure ! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Yes unfortunately hugs will have to do for now in so many cases. :( But hugs like this one are wonderful. Love the soft pink behind the scalloped circle.


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
