Rosette Fan Birthday Card made with Tiered Rosettes Die

Today, I have a Rosette Fan Birthday Card to share.  This card features Tiered Rosettes – Elegant 3D Vignettes designed by Becca Feeken.  I've also used Oh Happy Day – Elegant 3D Vignettes, Hemstitch Ovals, Ornamental Crest, and Cascading Grace .

When I made the fan, I had a simple card in mind.  Well, so much for that!  It simply needed a layered ornate background! 

Here are a step outs for making the fan....

First, die cut one of Tiered Rosettes – Elegant 3D Vignettes.  I started with ivory cardstock with lace edge.  Here's how I laid it out to cut.

Once cut, I snipped the paper between lace edge and rosette base. The lace edge die can be placed right next to the rosette part.   I chose to leave a little space when I cut it.

Next, cut one rosette of 3 other patterned papers.  I used scalloped edge on 2 pieces and pointed edge on one.  Here are the pieces folded.  I also cut 2 ivory strips that are .5 x 3.5 inches, scored and folded to .25 inch wide.  Two rosette centers are cut from black and patterned paper.  I used a gold vintage button and added a gem to the center.

Each layer is fastened with adhesive at the bottom edge. It's hard to see in photo but I've applied adhesive with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. This adhesive has a very strong hold.

Each layer was fastened with different amounts of reveal.  Here's what the back looks like.  
Strips have gold paper fastened to one side which will show on fan edges.

I used a darning needle and pearl cotton to thread through holes of rosette. Photo shows thread through outer hole.  I pulled it out and skipped outer holes on each end. 

First hole was skipped so edges can be fastened over it.  Cord was knotted to hold rosette shape. 

Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ in was applied to strips.  This adhesive has a very strong hold to keep edge in place over layers.  Each side piece was slipped over outer edge of rosette, ends extending at bottom. 
At this point I stopped taking step out photos....sad face.

The ends of strips are lapped and stapled to hold them in place.  Button was fastened to patterned paper and black circles with Adhesive Dots Medium. An Adhesive Dots 3D was used to fasten button and gold cord to fan.  Beads are added to cord ends.


Working up from card base (5 x 7.25 inches) which is ivory cardstock with inked edges.
Next, a layer of patterned paper over black cardstock fastened with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser I like to use the Ultra adhesive on the corners for a strong hold and the E-Z Dots along the edges. Don't fasten to card at this point.
Next layer is black cardstock cut with outer die from Cascading Grace.  DecoArt Metallic Lustre Gold Rush was rubbed at corners. Over that is black cardstock cut with Ornamental Crest also rubbed with Gold Rush Metallic Lustre. 
Next is two Hemstitch Ovals, one of turquoise paper cut with holes and behind it a solid oval of gold linen paper. I stamped Penny Black Script with Tea Stain Distress Ink.  All fastened with  E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.
A black label was cut with die from Oh Happy Day – Elegant 3D Vignettes.  Happy Birthday was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold.  I used Metallic Lustre Gold Rush around the edges.  It's fastened with 3D Foam Squares – Black Mix.  Gold cord is tied to a brad at each end. Ends are tucked and fastened behind background paper. 
Fan is fastened with 3D Foam Squares – Black Mix, one under the button and a few spaced behind fan and edges.
Small tag was cut from ivory cardstock using die from Cascading Grace It was inked, stamped with small verse and tucked behind button. 
Finally, fasten all to card base.

I hope you've enjoyed my tutorial.  There are so many ways to use Tiered Rosettes die! For more inspiration, check out Amazing Paper Grace blog on March 27 when Becca will show a project and projects from other members of her Creative Team.

What a gorgeous card! I had the idea of a fan out of that same set when I saw it come out, and wondered if it could work, so I’m so glad you made it happen!! I’m looking forward to giving it a try! Thank you !

Wow, your card has such a rich look to it with the colours you've used and the 'metallic' finishes!! I don't have the rosette die but have used my scoreboard to do a similar thing in the past. I might have to get it out again and have a go!!
