How to Get the Perfect Oval Rosette with Tim Holtz Die

I love the Tim Holtz Rosette die.  And I love gluing two together to create an oval rosette.  I am entering this card into the Case Study CSC94 Challenge.  So, here is the trick to getting the perfect oval rosette:
1)   Cut two of the rosette strip shapes in the same color paper and glue together to form one loop.  I used orange cardstock.
2)  Cut two small ovals for the center of the circle from the card stock using Creative Memories Oval Cutter.  I like to glue one to the front and one to the back to add stability to the rosette.
3)  Fold the rosette as usual, alternating peaks and valleys.
4)  Place your oval rosette inside the largest Creative Memories Oval cutter to keep in place while you glue.

So simple and so easy!
For my World's Best Father I used my Cricut Imagine with Ancestry, Cricut Craft Room Basic Shapes (Free!) and Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake (Best Dad).  The Tie is cut with Father's Day and the printed paper is Basic Grey.  I finished my matt with a bit of machine zig zag and my card is done.
