A Quick And Easy Trellis Card

I needed a quick card for a friend and while blog hopping saw a "Trellis Card".  I saved the site so I could give credit.  Then after I did the card I promptly deleted the site.  :-(  I forget what it is you lose first as you get older?  LOLOL  I searched for it for 30 minutes with no luck, even using Google!  I remember that I had loved finding that blog and decided to 'Follow' it.  So if I recently visited your blog and commented on your trellis card, please let me know so I can give you credit for inspiring me.  :-)

The card was made from leftovers.  The image was done at least a year ago, cut out and layered.  It is Hero Arts Red Rubber Cling Bouquet In A Vase stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb. cardstock, and painted with Twinkling H2O's Black Orchid, Mallard Green, and Warm Pecan.  The centers are done with Stickles Yellow.  The ribbon is May Arts.

The Trellis base background behind the bouquet was done using Spellbinders Lacey and Large Circle dies on the same cardstock and put through my Cuttlebug.  The weaving was done using 'white scraps' hoarded from way back when for who knows what!!!

The tag was done using a Spellbinders Blossom die on the Burgundy linen cardstock, a white acrylic tag and Impression-Obsession's new Clear Stamp Set All Occasions I stamped with StazOn Forest Green, and yellow rhinestone stickers. It was tied on with leftover gold cord.

The background paper was, I think, bought on sale at Michaels years ago.  I had cut it up for who knows what and it was stored in a box with other pieces I have waiting for a card!  The matte around that is Neenah Classic Crest Linen Burgundy.  The embellishments are leftover rhinestone stickers and a heart charm bought from Fancifuls, Inc.  The faux stitch was done with an SU marker.

Everything was mounted as shown with either my ATG tape gun or 3D pop dots.

I am finding more time to blog hop and love seeing all of your creations too!  Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!

Hahaha ~ I'm glad I'm not the only one who has made a card and forgot where to link it too! I started to drop down the window of the challenge I'm interested in on my computer screen till I'm finished with the card :) I really like the trellis and the sweet little heart that you put in the corner...It's all about the details!
