Diamond Edged Borders

Isn't it pretty? I am loving it!
I am not exactly sure what to call this design. I started out playing with one of my old files that I called "Decorative Diamond Design". 

I turned it, twisted it, and modified it until I ended up with this pretty lacy decorative edge.

This is two different round decorations with shadow pieces stacked together. I topped it with my "Open Rose"

*****I am working on instructional videos for the open rose this weekend****** I should have it ready soon. (It has taken me months to figure out how to explain it.)

But back to my diamond edge design...

I also used the design on either side of the middle piece on this gate fold card.

I even used a strip of it to make a beautiful rosette.

Putting the rose on top of the rosette was just too much for the top of the card so I will use it somewhere else. LOVE the way it looks though!

The set is available at my Etsy store.

I already have great plans for this design. Borders, mats, edges of cards...wonder how it would look to run ribbon in and out through the curved slits on the sides?????

I will let you know soon. LOL
