Big Shot Class: Scallop Circle Card

The Scallop Circle Sizzie Die is on of my favorites simply because it's so easy to make these scallop circle cards! I started with a 4.75" x 9.5" piece of cardstock folded in half to make a 4.75" square. By placing the crease of the cardstock just short of the edge of the die, making hinged cards is so simple with the Big Shot. I haven't tried this with the Cuttlebug, but I imagine the bug could cut through the two pieces of cardstock as well making this possible with that machine. I used an image from Pocket Silhouettes for the focal image and a small sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms and kept the card fairly simple. I used my Creative Memories Circle Cutting System to cut the smaller circles and my Marvy Uchida Mega Scallop Circle Punch for the smaller scalloped circle. The Brocade Blue Grosgrain has been sitting in my ribbon stash for so long unopened, I almost forgot I had it! I was SO happy when I found it because it was the perfect finishing touch for the card--see, collecting has its advantages! I'll be posting other projects as I can find time throughout the day and tomorrow so thank you for your patience on that :-)
