Garden Trellis Center Step Card


Hi Everyone, hope all of you have been having a wonderful week!

For my project this week, I made a Garden Trellis.



I guess you can say I am grateful that we have been enjoying some nicer weather although living on the ocean means weather can change at a moments notice.   We have a saying here, ... if you don't like the weather...just wait a moment!  To prove that phrase I just heard the forecast for tonight and we are expecting 6-10 inches of snow!

For this card I wanted to make a Center Step Card but instead of having the center portion of the card flush with the front I wanted the edges flush with the front. Here is a template for what I did. The card stock is 6.5 " x 12". The Red lines are the cut lines and the Blue lines are score lines. For the loop across the top I cut 2 circles, 1 smaller then the other and then cut it in half.


To create the trellis I simply used the Expandable Quilling Strip Die. I cut this using the smallest strip 6 times per piece to give it a wood like feel. After I glued all the strips together I glued the bottom 1 inch of each strip together. After that dried I put in my spacers to give the trellis the flair it needed. I placed on of my flowers on it to see how it would look before I made all my flowers and here is a closer look at the finished project:



Here are a couple more views of the finished project:

  5. Your trellis card is beautiful Joann! I have to say that I had a sneak peek at it before now and was inspired to make a trellis die that will be available on the new release April 15th. Thanks for the inspiration! Your roses are exquisite! Love the whole garden feel, with the butterflies, dragon flies and garden gate! Fabulous job!
