My First Rosette

 I've seen a lot of cards and home decor items with rosettes on various blogs lately.  I wasn't really interested because I don't know how you'd mail a card with the rosette on it but when I saw the sketch from Mojo Monday, I decided a rosette was called for. 

I also wanted to make a brighter card since all the ones I have been making lately are in all the colors of autumn.  Enter my 8" x 8" PTI paper stack called HodgePodge. 

All three of the printed papers are from that paper stack and the cardstock from things I had.   You can see where I substitued the rosette for the flower on the sketch.  I punched a strip of white cardstock and then scored it between the designs, folded it accordian style and glued the ends together.  I punched a circle from the background paper to put in the center.   I also used a piece of the punched paper for the end of the tall orange piece.   The sentiment was stamped with a PTI stamp using Dried Marigold Distress Ink.  I guess I'll just have to give this card in person.

  1. I feel the same way about rosettes - they look cool but seem so bulky! Glad you gave it a go though because it's perfect on your card!
