Rosette Flower and Punch Card Tutorial

10 Feb

Created by Kathy Alt

This is a fun technique that I learned at Leadership in Phoenix.  Creating the rosette flower is easy to do.

Stamp Set:  Vintage Labels (Sale-a-bration)

Punches:  Eyelet Border, 1 3/8″ circle, crop-a-dile, curly label

Big Shot Dies:  Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Top Note, Small Oval

To create the flower:

  • Punch two strips of the white CS ( 1″ X 12″) using the eyelet border punch
  • Run these strips through the crimper 3 times.
  • Pinch the ridges created by the crimper together
  • Punch a 1 3/8” circle
  • Cover this circle with sticky strip.
  • Place crimped piece around the circle starting on the outside first.  You will most likely want to add a portion of the second strip.
  • If you choose a button for the center, apply with a dimensional.
  • If you add a brad, you will want to punch the center with the piercing tool.

To create the leaves:

  • Punch out 2 small ovals
  • Run these through the crimper
  • Use the bone folder to crease a center fold

To create the background:

  • Using the Big Shot punch out the Top Note out of red CS
  • Run this punched out piece back through the Big Shot inside the polka dots embossing folder.

Sandwich for Die:   Clear cutting mat, Die, CS, Clear cutting mat

Sandwich for the embossing folder:  platform with Tab 2 opened, clear cutting mat, embossing folder with CS inside, clear cutting mat.

Finishing the card:

  • Be sure to attach the flower and leaves using sticky strip.
  • Attach the saying using dimensionals

*Don’t be afraid to try a variety of CS and Designer Papers.  These rosettes come out different every time!
