My first attempt at a rosette card

I have told myself that I am going to start trying out a few new techniques, nothing special, just things I have never got around to trying out. Now, considering a Stamp-a-ma-jig and a Simply Scored Scoring Tool jumped into my latest Stampin'Up basket I have no excuses not to try them out.

I followed THIS TUTORIAL to make up the rosette and I tried out THIS ONE using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.
The faux embossing technique didn't really work, I used a pale green (retiring Certainly Celery) first with a brown over the top but either I lined it up to closely or the green wasn't bold enough to show. Still, more than happy with technique and my new toy, just need to try out a few different colour options.

The lovely swirl stamp is from SU-Everything Eleanor and the tickets are from SU- That's the ticket.

My next challenge was going to be to try out my Simply Scored Diagonal Plate to make an envelope but I fear I will need something deeper to accommodate the rosette!! EEK
