Number one dad…

When my mum was alive, she often made rosettes for my dad’s friends to wear to the football match, especially if Liverpool were playing a big game.  She would hand-stitch satin ribbon to circles of cardboard and add ribbon tails. 

Her rosettes were absolutely brilliant, everybody wanted one, and she must’ve made hundreds over the years! 

I took inspiration from my mum’s rosettes for the centre piece of this Father’s Day card ……

I used sticky strip to attach the ribbon instead of stitching, but I think the effect was very similar.  

I mounted the rosette onto a “shield” made from the top note die that had been embossed with the square lattice folder. 

I just  love this effect!

Thanks for dropping by today
