  • Punch the white card stock along the full 8-1/2” length of white cardstock along the top and the bottom with the Martha Stewart Trellis border punch.
    After punching, fold in half to create the base of the card.

  • Cut a 4-1/4” x 3-3/4” panel out of “Sprout” green Bazzil textured cardstock.
    Punch along the top and bottom (the 4-1/4” sides) with the Martha Stewart Double Loop border punch.
    Snip off the top row of loops on each side so the green panel only has one row of loops on top and bottom.
    Adhere to the front, center of your trellis card base.

  • Punch eight McGill Stacking Daisies (1-3/16” size) from scrap white cardstock and shape the petals.
    Stack and glue two daisies together to create one flower, off-setting them slightly so the petals of both daisies can be seen.

  • Punch seven “fern” branches using the EK Success Rock Fern punch from Bazzil “Leapfrog” textured cardstock.
    Punch two more fern branches from Bazzil “Sprout” textured cardstock.

  • Adhere flowers and fern leaves to card base as shown in sample.

  • Embellish each Daisy with Basic Grey Bling It Rhinestone Dots.

  • Add ribbon and tie a bow.
