Mudra released some beautiful stamps for creating the perfect gift for your brother or as a return gift for your sister.

Happy Wednesday ! Christmas Rosette

Hello friends, by this time as you know its Christmas already at heartfelt Creations! We all are happy creating Christmas Cards and you would witness the beautiful cards and projects at the blog by all the talented designers from across the world.

Today I chose to create a Rosette instead of a Card. I love the concept of rosette however never made one in the past so the theme was absolutely apt for me to create one this time.




Instructions

The final rosette measures 6" in diameter. Cut 2piece of 3" x 12" strip from the HCDP1-280 Festive Holly Paper Collection. Score at 1/8" of regular intervals. Join the 2 12" strips and fold the scores at regular mountain and valley. Join the 2 ends to with glue gun place it on a small piece of paper to form the rosette. 

Die cut 2 pieces using the circle die with 1/8inch less and adhere to each other. Stamp and die cut multiple pieces from the HCD1-7146 Festive Holiday Die and stamp using Frosted Amber distress oxide.Shade and shape the sides of the holly leaves using frosted Amber and Iced Pruce distress ink.Once colored heat set the leaves using Rajni Chawla's frosted powder.

For the snoow also I have used the Frosting powder by Rajni Chawla on top of the berries and leaves.
First place the rosette and then place the stack of die cut circles. Adhere and arrange the cluster of holly leaves and berries on a base of mesh and some dry artificial leaves.To finish sprinkled and heat set some snow using the frosted powder.
