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!

Good luck…

I was asked to make a card for a colleague who was leaving.  The varsity alphabet stamp set was just perfect for what I had in mind.  The shapes were really easy to cut out and I popped them up on stampin dimensionals to add a little height and dimension to the card.  I used the heart punch for the four-leaf clover in the centre. I love these colours together and the card had a really clean and simple look.   I’m really pleased with how it turned out:

Cardstock: whisper white, certainly celery; Inks: tempting turquoise, melon mambo, green galore (retired); Stamp sets: varsity alphabet, so happy for you (retired saleabration set); Punches: full heart extra large, ¾” circle; Accessories: stampin dimensionals.
