Could someone help me !!! My son is getting married in 2019 & would like me to make the invitations, no problem, but he would like a Floral, Lacy, Embossed corner to them. I have a Scan n Cut & cannot seem to get it right. The invites will be 6 x 4 with the design on the top left & bottom right with a space of 3" in the middle for writing. Is there a Tattered Lace die cut I could purchase & utilise or some design from a company that I could use. I have been tearing my hair out over this as well as giving myself a terrible headache, if someone out there could help I would be grateful. Thanks in advance

Do you mean literally Tattered Lace as in the company?  Because they have gorgeous corner dies that can be quite lacy, and detailed.  They are gorgeous, and I love them, but they can be pricey, especially being a UK company and importing into North America.  But if this is going to be a high use item like for a series of invites, it would be worthwhile.  You likely may need a shim or detail mat to get a nice detailed cut with a die cutting machine

Just go to their site and do a search for corner dies.  If you are not in the UK, then there are several companies that import their dies.  If you are in NA, let me know, I have ordered from one or two that carry their goods.

https://www.tatteredlace.co.uk/?s=corner+die

Otherwise, lots of other die companies that put out detailed corner dies.  These are American ones

Memory Box is one - not lacy, but often floral or nature themed - seasonal themes too, so if it is a winter wedding, they have some nice snow corner dies.  The cool thing is that they have some corner dies that do both cutting and embossing.  I think they also make the Poppy Stamps brand too - which may be under a different url.

Spellbinders does a variety of corner dies - floral themed, some flourishes, not as lacy as Tattered Lace - again, just search corner dies

https://www.spellbinderspaperarts.com/

Impression Obsession does a few corner dies - more simple, floral/flourishes, but they make nice quality stuff, and can have matching stamps so you can add some coordinating heat embossing or stamping if you find a matching set.  For that matter, you may find that for Memory Box also

Or just try a general craft company like

Simon Says Stamp

Scrapbook.com

Frantic Stamper

These are three that I have used that carry a good supply of dies - there are others also I am sure, but with a quick look, these guys do carry a variety of corner dies.

Oh yes - if you live in the UK - get the Tattered Lace - the detail is amazing and they have so many options!  I just wish they were not so expensive for us in NA!
