Is there a way to create sub-cards in Trello similar to sub tasks in JIRA?

We are trying to use Trello in a similar manner to how JIRA manages Issues and Subtasks.  We’d like to add sever sub-cards that are subordinate to the main card.  Is this possible or are all Trello cards independent?

In Trello dependencies can be establish with cardlinks as attachments or checklist item cardlinks. 

@Mike Shrader Trello doesn't really offer this natively - it's a lot more simplistic in terms of hierarchy compared to Jira which offers Epics, Stories, and sub-tasks (along with linked issues as well). There are power-ups like Hello Epics that allow you to create an Epic card and then relate child cards to them. An alternative is to create linked cards with Butler - here's an example of how it would look:

If you're interested in the Butler option, let me know and I can explain how I set it up!
