Scallop Note Card

Stampin up baskets and blooms basket and card

I saw it and I had to have it.  The new Bigz Scallop Circle (113468) creates bold and beautiful die cuts but also pops out scallop note cards in a flash.  Think adorable scalloped card sets.  Game over for me.

Here’s a close-up of the die (5.5″ x 6″ x 5/8″ thick).

I folded Basic Gray card stock to a  5.5 x 4.25 card and centered the wide, scored side on top of the die.  TIP:  Leave four scallops uncovered as shown.  This will be your “hinge.”

My delicious scalloped sandwich did a little do-si-do with my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.  Voil? . . . instant scallop card (roughly 4.5 wide x 4.25 tall,  for inquiring minds)!  Cuttlebug lovers don’t despair.  The Bigz dies work beautifully in your lime fun factories.  Click here for my Big Shot 101 Tutorial, with exclusive details from the Stampin’ Pretty “lab” on using the Bigz Dies in a Cuttlebug.

Here’s my finished card.  I topped my scalloped note card with a large Certainly Celery Circle created with Nestabilities Circles and my Big Shot.  Oh, yes, I also “needed” the Bigz Scallop Circle set #2, which offers two more sizes . . . I used the larger size of the two for the Whisper White die cut.

I created a ribbon slide by whittling the Whisper White die cut circle with a Horizontal Slot Punch on each side. TIP:  To accommodate the width of the Pacific Point 5/8″ Striped Grosgrain, I lined up and punched the slot twice, moving just a hint to the side, to make the opening larger.  My color choices are from this week’s Splitcoast Color Challenge 192 (Pacific Point, Certainly Celery, Basic Gray).  TIP:  All SCS challenges are listed on my left side bar. 

I clipped the corners of the Santa layer with Stampin’ Up!’s Ticket Corner Punch and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to Certainly Celery.  The corners are dotted with micro brads.  TIP:  The blue in these Tropical Micro Brads works beautifully with Pacific Point. 

The sentiment tops a 1″ Circle of Certainly Celery and receives a touch of pizzazz with a tiny stick-on rhinestone.  Dimensionals divide the layers and anchor the base.

And the adorable basket?  Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Baskets and Blooms Bigz XL Die (113484) contributes the perfectly cut basket pieces.    Click here for a tutorial on creating the basket.
