Give Mom a gift from the heart and learn how to make a lovely rosette to embellish your card.

Sometimes I find myself getting into a pattern when I make my cards.  I have the tendency to create the same size often so for this Mother’s Day card I decided to do a 6” x 6” card.  Remember there aren’t specific card sizes.  You can create whatever size you’d like, but if keep in mind that if you will be mailing it, there will be a difference in postage.  One favorite thing of mine to make is rosettes.  I enjoy making larger ones for layouts, but don’t create smaller ones that often.  I wanted to add one to this card so I created a mini rosette for it.  These are fun and really easy to make.

First, create the card base by cutting a piece of 12” x 6” card stock and fold in half.  Trim a piece of patterned paper (Tim Coffey Foliage Paper Pad by K & Company used) that measures 5” x 5” and a piece of light blue patterned paper from the Secret Garden Collection by Graphic 45 that measures 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” and adhere them to the card base.

Add a piece of 5/8” ribbon that is 6” wide.  Glue it on using Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Now, for the rosette trim a piece of the blue card stock that measures 1” x 12”

Trimmer

Score with a scoring board (Martha Stewart Scoring Board used) at every ½”.

Score

Fold each section at the score lines.  Begin the first section so that if folds downward and the next section upward and so on.  This is called mountain and valley folds.  Once you have finished folding it, glue the 2 ends together so that both ends are folded down and against each other.

Punch a 1” circle from the blue card stock with a circle punch.  Add some Aleene’s Tacky Glue around the circle as shown in the picture.    Carefully shape the rosette and place the center of it in the glue.  HINT:  Sit the glue bottle on top of the rosette to hold it down into the glue until it is dry. 

Rosette

Die cut a tag (Spellbinders Labels Four used) using your die cut machine (Spellbinders Grand Calibur used) from white card stock.  Stamp “Mom” in blue ink (Note : to see all ink pad choices search “Stamping Ink Pads) using the Martha Stewart Custom Stamp Setting Kit.

Mom Stamp

Glue the tag onto the front of the rosette and the rosette onto the ribbon.

Mom, now, has a handmade card that is sure to bring many smiles to her this Mother’s Day.  Be sure to make one for all of the moms in your life.  Give her the special day she deserves Sunday, May 12th.

She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
