Fold & layer patterned paper to make Dianne Watson's easy Father's Day rosette card
You will need:
Basic card kit, plus...
Square card blank
Stripey & green patterned papers
Peel-off letter & number stickers
Cut out a square of green card and stick to the front of your card blank, leaving a border. Add a piece of stripey paper smaller than the coloured card – again to leave a border.
Cut a strip of green paper measuring 4x25cm and score across this every 0.5cm with a bone folder. Fold alternating scores in opposite directions, to create a concertina effect.
Wet glue the ends of the concertina together to make a short, corrugated tube. While that’s drying, cut two pieces of ribbon and stick them into place where your rosette will lie.
When the tube has dried, place it on a firm surface on one end and gently press down on the other end. It should flatten in a rosette shape of its own accord. Stick the rosette on top of the ribbon.
Cut a circle of card 3cm in diameter and glue on top of the rosette. Stick two strips of coloured card on the stripey paper and add your lettering. Finish off with a few gems.
