Cardmaking Online - Lacé Dots Rosette Card

My latest project on behalf of Cardmaking Online features the Lacé Dots Rosette cut and emboss template which when used with double-sided paper, creates a beautiful topper suitable for any project. There are a number of Lacé dies which offer a slightly different result to the one I've used but what I love about them is that they are so easy to use and yet the end result looks like it was a bit tricky to achieve!

The Lacé dies can be used with any die-cutting machine, I used my Cuttlebug and plates A, C & B. I then embossed the die-cut rosette by processing it through the machine again with an embossing tan mat. You can just about see the embossed dots on the black spotted paper - I'm sure the dots would be more visible on a lighter paper, but I liked the contrast of the black and white in my design.

To complete the rosette I simply folded back each '<' shape to the right (to expose the reverse side of the paper) then hooked it under the next piece, and so on. I mounted my rosette onto red card so that it would be easy to see the reverse side of the paper. I embossed the red card with my dots embossing folder to continue the spotted theme.


In the centre of the rosette I foam-mounted a die-cut butterfly decorated with stardust Stickles. Some silver peel-off mini ornament stickers and a silver peel-off greeting complete the card.

  2. Thanks Sandie, I'm going to have fun with this die! I've bought a few double-sided papers to experiment with!
