The rosette was created using the Gypsy and a 12x12 mat. I used the first Rosette in the handbook (top left corner of the overlay). I welded 5 of the short rosette pieces together to form one long panel. The rosette image is cut at 1 1/2 inches. When the rosette is completed, it will be approximately 3 inches across. I cut the Doodlecharm images at 2 inches (approx)
By welding the short pieces together, I am able to cut out the rosette panel in one continous panel. A tip...move the pieces together until the decorative edge forms a continuous line. The tab at the end of the short piece will be overlapping the end of the other.
I scored the rosette panels at 1/2 inch, turn it over and scored at 1/4 inch. Then accordian folded the panel, glued the ends together, pressed the panel down and formed the rosette. I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and a round piece of paper to hold the rosette flat.
Christmas scrapbooking paper, sentiment sticker, and ribbon from Walmart was used to complete the card front.
