Question Anyone make a die set like this?

Sometimes I think it near impossible for a new and unique die to appear on the market - seems like it's all been done already. Suddenly it occurred to me that I would love a certain set, but I don't know that it exists.

Hard to explain, but here goes. There are a lot of circle frame die sets out there with various diameters, but I want a circle frame that has a second circle frame centered along its perimeter and glued on top of it. The two create a single raised layer frame, and it could be even more pronounced with additional layers of cardstock. Anybody, is such a thing out there?

I plan to look through my die stash to see if I have two sets that might have the right dimensions if combined.

If I'm following you - and I can be slow on the uptake so may not be! - an infinity circle set should do the trick. The Hero Arts ones are great, and JoAnn is having a sale on the circle one:

I have nesting circle sets and suppose it might work, but I wonder if the base ring would end up having a pretty wide edge width. I'll try it.

I just cut two circles from the Hero Arts dies that are next to each other, and there's an 1/8" difference in both the negative (frame) space and the circles themselves. But I also wonder if I'm not following correctly.

I just made one with four rings from my Lifestyle 20-die Nesting Circles set, and it came out pretty good, about 3/8" across the base with a 4" total diameter. You really need a nesting set with a ton of incremental sized dies. Still, it would be nice to have a set just dedicated to making this frame combination.
