I've been wanting to learn how to make rosettes, mostly because I love them but I'm too cheap to buy the name brand ones. I looked at a few different tutorials and tried quite a few times, but I think I might have the hang of it now. For the rosette on this A2 sized card, I used a strip of paper that was 3/4 inch by 12 inches. I scored the paper every quarter inch going down the 12 inches and accordion folded it. Then I adhered the two ends together, and popped it on it's side. The back has a scrap of paper that I adhered on with Glossy Accents, and then I put the button on the same way. I put the rosette in the middle of four spice jars that I use for buttons, and then put the Glossy Accents on top of the button. I left it like that the rest of the time that I was making the card, and it's super sturdy now.
My card base is white, with the turquoise adhered on the top and a strip of red cardstock across the bottom of the turquoise. I had a really clear picture of how I wanted this to look in my mind. I was so disappointed to realize that I had no red and turquoise paper for the bottom half, so I made my own design with some Cricut cuts. The swirls on the bottom half are from Sweethearts at various sizes. I had to make a few adjustments and cut off some parts of the swirl when they ripped a little.
The tag is also from Sweethearts, with the shadow feature cut in red. I used red Doodlebug ink to stamp the sentiment, which is from Pink by Design's Scripted Year.
