How to Get the Perfect Rosette with Peaks and Valleys

My most visited post is the How to Get the Perfect Oval Rosette and this year I am sharing an option for the Rosette with peaks and valleys or a scalloped edge.  I used the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear (find it on Sale at this link) to hold the rosette in place and it's perfect for keeping my peaks from getting squashed!  I love the Cricut Ribbon's & Rosettes Cartridge and wanted to make an oval rosette for an Easter project.  But the Creative Memories oval cutter is too small.  Imagine my delight when I pulled out the INKADINKADO cog and realize it was better!  I love a tool that you can use for more than one application!  Can you see how the peaks fit in the notches in the gear?

The center sentiment was made with Cricut Lacy Labels, and Easter Cartridge using the Cricut Explore print and cut feature.  Below is the photo of an oval rosette inside a Creative Memories oval.  Use the link at the top of the post to get those instructions.    I am going to enter this in the Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge for the week.  I won last week.  Thanks so much BBTB2!  I thought your followers would love this tip for cutting rosettes with their Cricut, so I am entering again!
