Rosette Card

I have a bit of a thing about making these ultra-fashionable rosettes at the moment. Here's one I did using my favourite Craftwork Cards papers. The stripey label shape was cut from Storybook. They are easy to do, just cut a strip of paper about 1" wide, and start pleating into accordion pleats with your fingers, join the two ends. At this stage it will look like a little lampshade, punch two 1" circles and flattening the pleated cylinder, glue one to the front, and one to the back, this stabilizes the rosette. I punched along one edge before starting to pleat the paper

the butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch


Don't forget to come back for the big Polkadoodles blog hop tomorrow, Nikky has been incredibly generous, and all the design team have some really fabby stuff to give away on their blogs...... here's a sneak peek at just a couple of the things from the package of goodies I will be giving away







See you tomorrow when you hop over here

Beautiful EnFys! But this would have to be a deliver by hand creation. It would cost a mint to send! I've really been trying to make my cards without too many big embellies. I went to the post office last week and it cost me a bit over $16 to buy one book of stamps and post 6 cards! That'll be the last thick card I send. Well there are some Christmas Cards... Will I ever learn! lol
Hugs, Jess

That is a beautiful card, Enfys!! Thanks for the how-to with the rosettes. They are gorgeous.

jtgkaiser said...

Enfys, I do so love reading your posts!! Thank you for the lovely card ideas, and videos. I am still catching up on the ProMarkers posts. A question, can I use both the ProMarkers and Copics on the same image? Will they blend/work together since both are alcohol based? Sorry if you already answered this question, but do appreciate your response.
Thanks, Joan in St. Augustine
