Classy Cards Trellis Blossoms

Hi friends! I just received this great Memory Box Trellis die from Classy Cards 'n Such and couldn't wait to start playing.  It could make a wonderful backdrop for so many things.

I folded the cardstock to an A2 size and then unfolded it before running it through my Big Shot, making sure not to cut out past the top fold of the card when cutting the trellis.  I then glued an A2 size piece of green card stock behind the front of the card.  The trellis was glued in place on the green cardstock while the glue was still wet to ensure everything lined up nicely.  I had to push the white cardstock ends a little closer together to surround the trellis so it was good that I did this all in one step.

I cut the Bella Bouquet flowers twice out of heavy white cardstock and then colored the stems and flowers with Copics.  I outlined the flowers in a pinker tone and colored the centers with a lavender-pink.  I colored both sets of flowers but was more careful with the flowers that I knew would be popped up on top.  I then cut the stems off one set of flowers, covered those with glitter from a Wink of Stella pen and then used Joy! Foam Pads to pop up the flowers on top of the others.

The sentiment is from a Flourishes set and I used the Spellbinders Splendid Circles die (did you know Beverly at CCNS can special order Spellbinders dies?) as a stencil with pink Distress Ink to shade around the words.  Thanks for looking!
