Watermelon Paper Rosette

Watermelon Paper Rosette

Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by the Brutus Monroe blog today! I'm still playing with the patterned papers after our blog hop this week. I made a big paper rosette with two of the papers from the Fresh Melon pack. 

  I started by cutting the green watermelon striped paper into 3 strips that were 2.5 inches wide. I used my scoring board to score every 1/4 inch along the strips, and accordion folded the strips. I used hot glue to adhere the strips together and then used a circle of paper to hold the center together. I cut the pink watermelon paper into 3 strips that were 2 inches wide and scored them every 1/4 inch as well. When the rosettes were assembled I stacked them together with hot glue and glued a white paper flower to the center. For the card front, I used Raven detail ink to stamp the little stars from the Super Sentimental stamp set all over a panel of Alabaster cardstock, and glued the rosette on top. I heat embossed the sentiment, also from the Super Sentimental stamp set, in Alabaster EP on Raven cardstock and attached the strip to the card front. I matted the whole thing on a panel of Raven cardstock to finish it off. 

This card is a little crazy because it's so dimensional! But it came out really fun, and I love the layers of Melon paper. Have you made anything with any of the patterned papers yet?
