First Card With the Copic Markers

Hi Everybody! Okay, I lied. . .I actually had time to make this card while I waited for my son to put my shelves together.

This is my first attempt to make a card using the Copic Markers. I will do my review of the markers when I have more time. You'll probably be surprised with what I have to say. . .or maybe not. . .:)

Anyway, this was a fun card to make. It took a lot of coloring and cutting but I like how it turned out. This is a great stamp set. It's really pretty.

Hopefully, I'll be able to finish up organizing my shelves and I'll take a picture of it tomorrow. If interested on the step by step instructions of this card, scroll down. See y'all later!!

Close up of the flowers. As you can see they are multi-layered. I love multi-layered flowers.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: SU Time Well Spent, Circle of Friendship
Paper: I'm not sure. . .I think it's Groovy Guava or Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Copic Markers, Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Grosgrain ribbon, Marvy round corner punch, SU 1" circle punch


1. Stamp the large flower from the SU Time Well Spent stamp set 6x on white cardstock.
2. Color each layer of the flower using the Copic Markers (Sorry, I didn't take note of the marker numbers - I'll try to remember next time)
3. Cut each flower by layers meaning start with the larger outline and continue on with the next flower outline and so on.
4. Mount each cut flower in layers using a foam tape.
5. Stamp one of the sentiment stamps from the SU Circle of Friendship stamp set inking with the Purely Pomegranate ink pad.
6. Using a 1" circle punch, punch out the sentiment.
7. Shade the edge using a sponge dauber and mount onto the center of the lower flower using a foam tape.
8. Stamp the butterfly image using Purely Pomegranate ink randomly on to the card base. 9. Mount the flowers on to a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Chocolate Chip cardstock, punch the corners using the round corner punch and mat onto a Wild Wasabi cardstock. Punch the corners of the mat using the round corner punch then attach to the card base.
10. Punch the corners of the card base using the round corner punch.
11. Follow the sketch and design as desired.
