On Saturday I took part in the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Blog Hop. Each month one of the members on the team is chosen to set the challenge which can be a theme, a colour challenge or they can design a sketch. This month Sally was chosen to set the challenge and this is the sketch she gave us.
I cut a sheet of Whisper White A4 cardstock in half and placed this, with the narrow part at the top, in the Cable Knit Dynamic embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. Because the embossing folder is a lot thicker than other embossing folders you only need to use one cutting pad.
I glued these 2 pieces together and on the back I added some foam tape to each side and the bottom. At the top left hand and right hand side of the panel I added a 3/4″ piece of foam tape leaving a gap in the middle for the ribbon to tuck into.
For the Rosette I cut a piece of Marina Mist cardstock that measured 1-1/4″ x 11 5/8″ and scored it at every 1/4″ I folded it and burnished it really well. I adhered this in between two 2″ circles using a hot glue gun. I adhered a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon on the back but you could use a safety pin if you prefer.
I wanted to make the Rosette removable so that the recipient could wear it. To do this I punched two 1″ circles from a piece of window sheet and glued one of them to the back of the Rosette and one onto the cardbase. I used a glue dot to adhere the 2 ‘window sheet circles’ together and tucked the ribbon in between the embossed panel and the cardbase.
I had lots of fun making my Rosette card and it didn’t take long to make it. I hope you like my card as much as I do. If you have time to leave me a comment I would love to get your feedback.
