Spellbinders - A Gilded Life - Vintage Rosette Birthday Card

Hello blogging friends!  Today, I have a card to share with you using some of the New  A Gilded Life die templates from Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  I am loving the New product line from A Gilded Life!  It's so romantic, vintage and shabby--so be prepared to see a lot of projects--LOL!

Here is the card that I designed using GLLD-006 Belgian Lace and GLLD-002 Imperial Border.  These are two of the long dies--almost 8'' long--but they can be trimmed down too.  For this card 6x6 I trimmed the die cuts a little.  I used the GLLD-006 Belgian Lace die template to create layered die cuts for the background on the card.  I used Simply Smooth Ivory and Oatmeal colored cardstock and then I lightly inked over the die cut with Antique Linen ink to make the embossed detail really pop.  I used the GLLD-002 Imperial Border die template to make the rosette.  I used vintage sheet music and die cut four of the borders.  Then I lightly inked the outer edges with Antique Linen ink. I cut off the rounded ends on the die cuts, glued them into one long strip, did the fan fold and glued into place to create the rosette.

Here is a close up of the rosette.  I added some vintage lace trim to the front and back of the rosette, a few WOC flower and then I edged the rosette with Silver Stickles.

I added some vintage lace trim and WOC Flowers to the corners, a vintage style image, White Seam Binding from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and a handmade stick pin.  For the stick pin I used some beads from my stash and a few Bead Caps and Rondelles from ButterBeeScraps.

This card was on display at CHA in the Spellbinders Paper Arts® booth for the new A Gilded Life product line.  At the time when I was designing the card I forgot to take step-shot pictures so I don't have any photos for creating the rosette.  But if you would like to see a tutorial on it leave a comment and let me know.  If I have some requests for it then I will do a tutorial.  ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you are having a wonderful week!
