I simply created some rosettes and then built up the card.
The base card is a 6x6 scalloped edge card. The backing paper is a circle cut with a Sizzix circle die. I then took and overly wide strip of 12" paper from Crafty Bitz. I don't think they are around any more! I used a Martha Stewart edge punch along the full 12" length on one side.
The Hougie Board allowed me to score the length of the paper at 1cm intervals. Then I completed hill and valley folds. The two ends were then glued together so I had a circle banjo. I then hit a problem! The width of the paper was too wide to allow the banjo to be "flattened" and "popped" to form the rosette. How can I get over this? Snipping! I cut each valley from the outside edge to the non-punched area. This allowed the rosette to pop and it then gets glued to a small disc of card to maintain the shape.
The same process was used to make the second rosette.
I then layered the rosettes and placed a Create and Craft brad on top, having removed the legs.
Thes tag is a basic die cut in a complimentary paper, with the sentiment stamped with Momento ink. It is glued on and the brad is legless and glued in place.
I think this is a really effective yet simple card that can be whatever you want it to be and the colour options are obviously endless.
Thanks for taking a look. I have a few other cards lined up now, as well as a couple of other projects that I have been working on. I hope you will take the time to look at them too.
