Hi here’s another Father’s Day card, this time with a world’s best rosette. My first idea was to make an actual 3D rosette from concertina’d card but I realised that not only would it be expensive to post but it would also probably get crushed on the way. I think the inverted scallop dies that I used to cut the layers of the rosette are a perfect substitute.
To Make The Card
Start with a white 5″ x 7″ blank card. Trim the height to 17.5cm to make it easier to cut the layers. Cut a piece of dark red card 12cm x 17cm and adhere to the card front. Cut a piece of cream card 11.5cm x 16.5cm, ink the edges with gold ink and adhere on top of the red layer. Die cut two circles with inverted scallop edges, a red one 8.5cm diameter and a matt gold one 7.5cm. Cut a 6.5cm plain edge circle from red card. Glue all three circles on top of one another to form the rosette.
Use matt gold card to die cut the words that make up the sentiment and glue them to the rosette. Die cut two pennants from red card and two from gold card, glue them in pairs, slightly offset. Use thin foam pads to adhere the rosette to the front of the card, then glue the pennant ‘tails’ under the bottom edge of the rosette.
This is a great way to show appreciation for Dad with a prize winning rosette. The card design is fairly simple but the message is loud and clear. I hope you like the card, all the products used are linked below.
