Topiary Tree and Trellis

Good day everyone,

Today I share a card with you I made with a Cottage Cutz die “Topiary”.  Although it took a little patience and time to glue all the little bits and pieces together I am always pleased with the end results achieved with these cute dies. To add depth to the leaves, rose and planter I coloured the die cuts with my ordinary colour pencils. The trellis frame was created with a Martha Stewart edge punch “Garden trellis” and the inside of the frame lined with glitter for a little bling. I liked the clean and simple look on the outside and decided to add my stamped sentiment on the inside with some of the little roses and leaves.  The colour combo of ivory, mint and coral  is this week’s challenge at the Play Date Cafe.

I enter  my card in the following challenges:

A close-up of the topiary tree. I added some depth with colour pencils to the roses. leaves and planter.

A peep at the inside. I did some stamping too!

Project details:

  • White, Ivory, coral and mint green cardstock
  • Cottage Cutz Die “Topiary” from The Scrapping Cottage
  • Martha Stewart Punch “Garden Trellis”
  • Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp
  •  Croxley colour pencils
  • Skwiglues glitter “Crystal”

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you see something to inspire you. I appreciate your kind comments and looking forward visiting you and see what you have created this week.

Have a wonderful week.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

I love your border and the way you’ve accented the leaves and flowers too. Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us this week over at The Play Date Cafe!
