Today is an exciting day as I am a guest designer at Die Cuttin’ Divas. Today's theme is the Three R's: make something with a rosette, ribbon and rhinestones. Believe it or not, this is actually my try at rosettes. Turns out they are super quick and easy to make and they add great dimension to your project. The pink paper with the black dots was made on my Cricut Imagine using the Black and White Cartridge (which I heart).
On the first card with the tic tac toe, I cut the squares with Spellbinders Square Swatches. I used the 2nd to smallest die to go on my 5.5" card. I used my Sew Easy Stamper to make the lines between the squares. I made my rosettes from 3 strips of paper cut at 1/2" x 6" and then scored them every 1/4". I used ribbon as my line to mark my tic tac toe win. I used some iRocks for my rhinestones. I inked the edges by using some Spun Sugar Distress Ink on the edge of the card. I did not put a sentiment on this card because I'm not sure for whom or what occasion I will pass this card out, so I will stamp this one later when the time comes.
The second card is a standard A2 size and I used the pink and black dot paper for the background. I used this really wide 1.5" black and white striped ribbon. The rosette is made from a strip of paper cut at 1.5" x 12 inches. I cut at 1" circle for the center and added a pink flower rhinestone on top of the center. I glued the rosette on top of the ribbon. Next, I added a tag with a sentiment, both which are from My Creative time, called Teeny Tags.
I really LOVE the way these cards came out--they are so cute. And you don't even need a Cricut to make them (you can easily use pattern paper from a stack and the Cricut Imagine wouldn't be necessary).
Thanks for dropping by.
