Thanks for joining us today for our Sunday CASEing the Catty #105 blog hop.
Follow us around the South Pacific as we CASE projects inspired by the Fancy Frost section of the Holiday Catalogue.
For me this week, it was the beautiful rosettes in the background of the photo above that started my creative process.
It’s been so long since I made paper rosettes – and what fun I had!!!
My first card uses the rough layout of the card at the right side of the photo – with a beautiful pink rosette as the centrepiece.
I love the white on white effect that the Fancy Frost DSP has when layered with Whisper White cardstock.
My second card (because one rosette is never enough!) uses the layout from the card at the top left of this photo as a guide…
To create this card…
I used a tighter coil for this rosette which I got by scoring at closer intervals (1/4″). The starting cardstock size as 1-1/4″ x 11-3/4″ (or approx the length of an A4 page).
The pink rosette is scored at 1/2″ intervals, with a starting cardstock size of 1-1/2″ x 11-3/4″
You can easily change the finished look of your rosette by adjusting the starting size of your paper / cardstock and the intervals you score at.
Once scored & mountain/valley folded (ups & downs), to create your rosette, adhere at the short end to form a circle and then pull one edge of the circle inwards until it gathers at the central point and your rosette sits flat.
I used hot glue to hold it all in shape – making sure to work on my Silicone Craft Mat. If you don’t have one of these, you *need* one!!!
I’m pretty sure these aren’t the posting variety of cards – imagine what kind of artistic shape they’d have after receiving Australia Post’s not-so-delicate treatment!!!
