I am so thrilled and honored to be a part of this blog hop to THANK YOU for following me through my blog on my creative journey! A BIG FAT THANK YOU to Latisha Yoast for hosting this AMAZING Blog Hop - Year 4!!
Last month, I was part of a Christmas Tag Swap, using Prima Marketing's Victorian Christmas Collection by Frank Garcia (Prima Designer and Educator). I was SO HAPPY with it that I wanted to share with you how to create my Rosette Embossed Holiday Tag.
I cut 3¼ x 6¼" tag out of chipboard and patterned paper and adhered together. Then I embossed the tag with Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities™ Folder to create dimension. Spread Glass Bead Glitter Gel in the corner for extra sparkle (dries clear) and ink the edge with gold metallic ink. Set aside to dry.
For the rosettes, I made three different sizes per tag. All were 6" strips of paper and the widths were: ¾", 1" and 1½". Score and accordion fold every ¼". Adhere the ends together to create a ring. For the base of the rosette, use a scrap piece of paper, coat of liquid adhesive and place the ring over it (keeping as centered as you can). Then flatten the ring on top of the paper. Hold for a few moments. Tip: I put them under a heavy book and left them overnite to set and dry.
For the largest rosette, I cut 3¾" wired gold tinsel trim (picked up at a craft store) to form a circle and adhered on top of the rosette. With a stack of two 3D Foam Squares, I centered Lacey Circles Die Cut #2 (the smallest die size is #1) and then adhered Fonts One - Uppercase "JOY" word to finish.
The second rosette, I cut Layered Poinsettia Die #1 (2 pcs) and #2 (1 pc) with red felt. Layered and adhered the die cuts, use drops of Texture Gem™ Gold for its center. The leaf was cut from Layered Poinsettia Die #3 Petal and adhered to the flower. Then adhere the flower in the center of rosette with a stack of two Dodz™ - 3D.
For smallest rosette, I spread Texture Luxe™ Gold over its folds and centered the rosette with a colored rhinestone.
Assemble the embellished rosettes as shown by securing with Extreme Double Sided Tape ½" (large rosette) and 3D Foam Squares (medium and small rosettes). I fussy cut a small postcard design from one of the patterned papers and tuck it under the smallest rosette (either as accent or a place to write). Thread ribbon on top and you're done!
