Delicate Doilies Meets Rosette

Inspired by this months Demo only impressions newsletter I made couple of cards using the Delicate Doilies stamp set in Melon Mambo to mach my 1/2" scallop dots ribbon.

The rosette was easy peasy to make with the new simply scored tool, just cut the designer series paper to 1" and score at every 1/4" and accordian fold, join the ends together, lay it on the table and push down with your hand to form the rosette. Make sure you use strong adhesive to keep it together or better still a long pronged brad and a few circle punches either side. I used a sticky sheet, die cut with the circle #2 die(note to self -don't try to use a punch with this stuff it don't work!!) i used the 2nd smallest circle to hold it together on the back then a 1 3/8" card stock circle. I don't think its going anywhere now!!
