Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

3D Rose with Embossed Lace Frame

Hullo there everyone! thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers - all really appreciated! and mending impatiently still! another two weeks and go back to Opthamologist. I will be able to get new glasses then which will be great.
To my card! One way to emboss with dies for mounts of work rather than cutting them to give a totally different effect.
Used 3D Studiolight Rose Frame2 and separated pieces.
As these are pre-cut they make life much easier! this one is lovely.
 Use 3D mounts to layer up the layers starting from the bottom, making sure the shaping is covering the right areas of layer underneath.
Now is confession time - I attached this lovely 3D rose to the beautiful frame which comes with the pack and I was using glossy accents to give it the rose  some highlight.. 
...and splot! it blobbed on the wrong spot and wrecked the frame, it curled up. 
I should have used Gloss Kote with brush as I did on the other one in this set
I put it to one side to dry and think about it for a while, this is what resulted.. 

Cut around dried outline of the 3D rose. 
Use Lace Classic Rozette Die with brushed gold cardstock and embossed with tan mat.( I did not cut this, but emboss only)
Did test run first on scrap paper to see if this worked.  Took embossed gold card and carefully cut around the edge of Lace Rozette to give a flat frame to mount the 3D rose. Mount cut rose with double sided tape.

Cut a piece of  blush coloured card to size. Emboss with cArt-us Trendy Braid embossing folder and slightly distress surface to make pattern pop. (Love this folder - weave folders are really versatile). 
Add the embossed paper to white card add then the spiral lace die with the 3D rose on top with 3D mounts. Attach lovely lace from Kaisercraft white lace pack to bottom of the card as shown above.
Just a note  re. Glossy accents- they are great on 3D, as they were used them on this card here - but should not be used when there is frame with gold on it like this one. With the Gloss Kote you can direct gloss shine for finish more carefully with the brush, rather than the tip.

Shaz, this is just beautiful. I enjoyed confession time too! Makes me feel better about my boo-boos. What a great idea to use this technique with a card, and it sure did turn out lovely. Don't get impatient...the eyes will heal, and you'll be back to doing whatever is normal. Take care, good luck with the challenges. Hugs
