A Card Sketch That’s Coming Up Rosettes

I love paper rosettes!  When I created this sketch, I planned to use this pretty accent on the card.  They can be purchased pre-made or you can also try your hand at making these yourself.  If you haven’t tried making one of these, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make one.  Just score at every 1/4″ of a 12″ strip and fan-fold it.  Glue the free ends together, push down into a rosette, and secure the center with a glue dot.  They are fun to create and you can customize them to coordinate with your card papers.

Happy card-making!

“Happy Thanksgiving” Card

Designed by Valerie Salmon

SOURCES  Patterned papers (Scenic Route).  Rosette die (Sizzix).  Cardstock (Bazzill).  Woven label (Me and My Big Ideas).

Designer’s Notes:  

I used a rosette die that cuts and scores at the same time.  All I had to do was fan-fold the strip, join the ends together, and glue the center with a strong adhesive.  Happy Fall!

SOURCES    Paper: Bella Blvd-Christmas Wishes: Star stripe, North Pole and Candle Light;.  Stickers: Bella Blvd-Christmas Wishes: Just Write Journaling and Alpha and Bits.  Flower: Bella Blvd- Baby Blossoms- Champagne

Designer’s Notes:  

I created the flower by cutting a strip of paper 12″ x 1 1/2″ and then pleating it evenly. I used glue to adhere the ends together and letting it fan out into a circle. Attached with a glue dot. Followed by adding a blossom flower and some inked edges for a completed look to this card.

“Thank You” Card

Designed by Ingrid Danvers

SOURCES  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft), Papertrey Ink (Rustic White) | Patterned paper: Crate Paper (Random Collection) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Big & Bold Wishes) | Ink: A Muse Studio (Currant) | Felt: Papertrey Ink (Autumn Rose) | Button: A Muse Studio | Twine: Creative Impressions | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative | Dies: Papertrey Ink (Doily Details, Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection, Sending You Die Collection, Large Scalloped Border Die) | Tools: We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper), sewing machine

Designer’s Notes:  

Sketches are a great inspiration. You can strictly follow the sketch or you can use certain elements. Instead of using a rosette on my card I let the rosette in the sketch inspire me to create a layered flower as focal point on this card. Adhere the different layers with foam dots to create more depth.

“One in a Million” Card

Designed by Rae Barthel

SOURCES  Cardstock: (black) Hobby Lobby.  Patterned paper: (Breakfast Nook, Cloth Feed Sacks, Prairie Grass, Refrigerator Magnet from Picadilly collection) BasicGrey.  Accents: (tin title from Vintage Vogue collection) Pink Paislee; (black sparkle border sticker) White Blossom.  Fiber: (red baker’s twine) Martha Stewart Crafts.  Tool: (corner rounder punch) We R Memory Keepers.  Other: foam tape

Designer’s Notes:  

I was so excited when I saw Valerie’s sketch and knew exactly what I wanted to do: create a rosette! Have you tried making your own yet? It’s super simple, here is how I made mine. First, cut a strip of paper 1 1/2″ x 12″. Accordion fold the entire strip about every 1/4″ – 3/8″. Adhere the two ends together to create the rosette. I then take a glue dot and put it in the center of the rosette to sort of hold it together before I adhere the piece to my card front. Last step is to embellish the center of the rosette as you choose!
