Once again it is time for a card tutorial by the briliant René Sharp! This time with a Rosette Tutorial! We LOVE the effectiveness of this card – so simple but so striking! Enjoy! (Remember that we appreciate your comments – if we never get comments, we don’t think anyone is reading the Blog!)
I use a piece of white cardstock included in the kit and my Martha Stewart Score Pad to score a line down the centre of the card.
I cut strips of paper using the various different patterned papers included in the kit.
I trim them in varying lengths and adhere them to the white base in a bit of a staggered pattern.
I cut a 4cm strip of blue paper, and keep it at a length of 30cm. I score a line at every ¼”.
I fold along every score line in a zig-zag pattern.
I then manipulate the paper into a rosette shape. The paper tends to jump around a bit, but just be firm with it!!
Stick the two ends together with some double sided tape.
I use a large glue dot to secure the centre of the rosette.
I added some punched stars, and a little bit of machine stitching. I also punched two different sized circles to add to the centre of the rosette. I finished it off with the “hello” sentiment and some green ink around the edges.
