Ribbon Rosette with Scallop Circle Punch & Glitter Gel

Pin It
We made this card at my last team meeting.  It is a different version of the acetate flower card I posted a few days ago.  Have you ever had something work the first time and then never again?!  The first time I used the Scallop Circle Punch on the overheard projector plastic, it worked perfectly, but when I tried it at my unit meeting it didn't work anymore.  Luckily, I had a backup plan just in case.  We cut out one of the roses from the beautiful pink ribbon assortment, added some glitter gel in a accent jar, then smooshed the rose into the jar to cover the tips of the rose with the glitter and viola - sparkly rose!  That technique was shown on a CTMH video that I posted earlier


Supplies:

D1476 Card Chatter - Sympathy Stamp Set (1" x 3 1/2" Block)
4 1/4 x 11 White Daisy CS
Sophia Workshop Kit Papers:
2 1/2 x 3 3/4 Striped paper (stripes going short-ways)
2 x 3 3/4 small floral paper
(2) 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 polka dot paper
Chocolate Stamp Pad
4 1/4 Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon
(2) White Brads
Designer Pink Ribbon
Scallop Punch
Piercing Tool
Foam Tape
Glue Dots
Liquid Glass
Tombow Adhesive
Sponge (for brown ink)

All supplies can be found on my website!

Here are the other instructions:
  • Use Chocolate Ink and a sponge to add ink to the edges of all the papers
  • Glue the background papers to the card toward the top of the card to leave room for the saying at the bottom
  • Stamp "Thinking of You" at the bottom using Chocolate Ink
  • Add the brown ribbon across the card with tombow adhesive
  • Use the Piercing Tool to create holes for the brads
  • Add the white brads
  • Punch two scallop circles out of the two 2 1/2" polka dot papers
  • Place the two scallop circles together and snip (from the outside into the center) every other scallop to create petals. You can do each circle separately, but this saves time.
  • Bend each petal up and down to separate them so they are more distinct
  • With the green side up of one of the scallop flowers, place a piece of foam tape in the center and add the other flower on top
  • Add Liquid Glass to the center of the pink flower
  • Cut out a rose from the Pink Ribbon Assortment
  • Squeeze some Glitter Gel into an accent jar
  • Squish your rose into the Glitter Gel as show in the CTMH video, let dry
  • Add Liquid Glass to the center/top of the pink polka dot scalloped flower
  • Add the rose on top
  • Let dry and done!
