I started my card by adding the phone cord image to a Word document, then I resized it. Next, I copied and pasted many of the cord image and arranged them around to create a background for an A2 size cards.

Then I added the phone image and resized it. I printed them both out and then used my Copic to color them up. I printed a sentiment to use on my card, but later found that I couldn't really get it to fit on my card base in a way I liked!

Next, I used a stitched rectangle to cut out the phone cord panel and added it to a black card base. Like I mentioned above I couldn't get a layout I liked with the sentiment I printed, so instead I pulled out some glitter alphabet stickers.

I added the alphabet stickers at the bottom of the panel to spell out Hello. Then I added a strip of black card stock across the card. Last, I added the colored phone image to the card with foam tape.

I started by opening the single Iris and leaves, then resizing them in Word. For a sentiment I picked out With Love and Daughter, adding them to the flower like they were all one sentiment.

Next, I printed it out and used my Copic markers to color the flower and leaves. Then I used a stitched rectangle to cut out the flower. With a craft knife and sharp scissors I cut around a part of the flower and sentiment.

For a card base I pulled out some blue card stock that matched the blue I colored the Iris's. Then I used Funky Fossil Designs Random Rectangle Stencil and white pigment ink to ink up the background.
