Scallop Circle Card

Here's a nice idea for a card that's just a little different ... tired of those boring rectangular shapes? Want something "outside the box"? Try a Scallop Circle card!

The Big Shot is pretty tough (see my earlier post Big Shot Sampler) and easily takes two layers of regular cardstock, so these little round cards are a breeze to make.

I would suggest layering any decorative elements, for instance patterned paper or strips of coordinating cardstock before you cut the circle - as I found the other night when putting this together.

And see the ribbon across the top? My daughter came up with this idea when we noticed that I had accidentally caught a little nick from the scallops across the crease - so we cut an extra hole on the other side (using the edge of the Horizontal Slot punch) and camouflaged the little mistake.
