Happy half-way-to-Friday!

I’m on a Copic-colored flower kick this week, I think I’m starting to mourn the end of summer!  Today’s card features the flowers from the Waffle Flower Bouquet Builder stamp set and a sentiment from the Neat & Tangled No Words stamps set.  I just love how these sentiments pair with the flowers, it’s a combo I’ve used before.

I started by stamping the flowers in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black Ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock.  I used a Misti Stamping Tool and rotated the card 180 degrees to wind up with a symmetrically stamped pattern.

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto a scrap piece of the same cardstock.  I trimmed it down into a small rectangle and then cut a slightly larger rectangle out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.  I glued the two together and then backed the piece with foam tape before adhering it to the background.

To finish up the card, I adhered the card front to an A-2 sized card base.

Thanks very much for swinging by!
