Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- 2" square from Whisper White Cardstock

- scrap of Garden Green Cardstock at least 2" wide
Mount the flower image from the Amazing You Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Memento Pad. Stamp once onto Grid Paper. Stamp again, without re-inking, onto the Whisper White square so the flower is centered. Set aside to let it dry. Clean the stamp with the Stampin' Mist and Stampin' Scrub, but leave it on the block to use again later.
