  • Fold your silver glossy cardstock in half to form your card base.

    Set aside.

  • Use the ribbon to make a bow with long tails.
    Glue the bow to the right side of the card with a glue dot, positioned at the seam between the music paper and the blue cardstock.

  • Wrap the tails of the bow around the front along the seam, then glue them to the back of the blue cardstock.
    The tails should cover the seam. (See photo)

  • Punch out two photo corners of blue glitter paper and two photo corners of music paper.

  • Adhere the blue photo corners at the bottom.

  • Adhere the music photo corners at the top.

  • Adhere this whole piece to the front of your card base.

  • To make your rosette:

    • Run Tim Holtz Sizzlit Rosette Die through the Sizzix Big Shot (or other die machine) using the blue patterned paper.

    • Follow the manufacturer's instructions to fold the rosette and put it together.

    • NOTE: Tim has a short video on how to do this and its great.

      Making the rosette take a couple of tries but is actually pretty easy.
      Practice makes perfect!

  • Punch out a scallop circle using the silver glossy cardstock.

  • Glue your finished rosette to the front of the silver glossy scallop circle.

  • Add a blue button to the center of your rosette.

  • Place a line of silver glitter glue around the rosette about 1/8” from the edge.

  • Allow your rosette to dry.

  • Glue your finished rosette to the front of your card.
