Finally, Big Scallop Circles!

September 7th, 2008 · 6 Comments

A Cardinal Christmas

I’m thrilled with my new Stampin’ Up! Big Shot die cutting machine! It cuts through several pieces of card stock at once. I made these large Chocolate Chip scallop circles for my 10 Holiday Card Challenge cards in less than a minute. The regular circles were cut out with the Coluzzle.

For my September cards, I wanted to use one of my Holiday Mini pre-order sets, A Cardinal Christmas. Sketch #190 on SCS was just what I was looking for. I added some faux stitching to the card with my Mat Pack, paper piercer, and a Chocolate Chip marker. The card measures 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.

Thanks for stopping by!

    ooo, this is great and gives me some perspective on the size of those dies. I think they need to go on my next order. I LOVE this Vera!
