The first thing I did was to die-cut the ivy from the centre of the green mat - it's hidden and I'm frugal! As I make square cards I had to extend the Darice brick wall embossing panel - I then added snippets of the ivy. I cut the bench twice in some old packaging for the rustic look and spray glued together. I die-cut and embossed the topiary and sponged on the colours before popping up with foam pads. I used foam pads for the sentiment too. tfl.
