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).
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.

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.
