10/02 Breezy Winter Day

It's a breeze to make a scallop circle card with the Big Shot! Below are a few pictures that show how you can hide the scallops that you have to cut off in order for the card to open. Pretty easy peasy!! I just LOVE this stamp set called Winter Post. I have a soft spot for anything vintage and this was the first stamp set I purchased from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The Ski Slope DSP is divine and I have to admit that my very favorite sheet is one with the decorative stripes. You can see just a tiny bit of it one this card . . . sometimes that's all you need to achieve perfection! lol! I put some dazzling diamonds on the dominate snowflake. The other snowflakes were stamped off once so that they barely show up. Hope you have a happy day and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Supplies I used on this card:

Stamps: Winter Post, Merry & Bright
Paper: Baja Breeze, Ski Slope DSP, Confetti White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Marker, Two Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Riding Hood Red Taffeta, Circle Die, Big Shot Machine, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, Glue Dots

The first photo shows how I placed the folded edge of my card base on the Circle Scallop Die. Then, I ran a piece of Baja Breeze through the Big Shot using the same die. This is attached to the card base. The bottom picture shows how the back of the card looks. . . you get a nice folded circle card, but the front stays completely round. Hope this helps you when you make circle cards, too.

HI, I love this card. I'm a little slow...so how does the back attach to the card front? Thanks, Dayle

This is a wonderful scalloped circle card! So clever to hide the non-scalloped fold part, Kay.

I love this! Beautiful design and great tip to cover the folded base with a full scallop! I will be doing it this way from now on. TFS!

Beautiful card! Thanks for the wonderful tip, Kay!
Love the skaters--I've never scalloped anything before except potatoes. This is a wonderful card to learn from.
This is awesome! This is my favorite stamp set, too! I love how you "hid" the cut-off scallop! What a great idea! Thanks for visiting my blog today and your nice comments! I'll be back to your blog for sure!
