Layering Circle Dies are one of the main staples in my craft room when it comes to card making.
Of course, I’m always using the regular circles, but lately, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to use the scallop circles.
Here are 3 ways that you can use scallop circle dies…
1) Add a Small Scallop Border
Melon Mambo card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Floral paper: 4-1/4″ wide, 3-1/2″ to 1-1/2″ tall
Circle size: 2-5/8″
Stamp your greeting or image and then choose the size circle die that you want. Once you’ve cut your circle, hold it over the scalloped dies to find the die that is just bigger than your circle.
This adds a very subtle scallop border around your circle.
2) Add a Large Scallop Border
Coastal Cabana card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Floral paper: 4-1/4″ wide, 4″ to 2-3/8″ tall
Circle size: 2-1/8″
To add a larger border around your circle, select a larger scallop circle die. You can go up one size, or two if you want a really big border!
3) Add a Scallop Circle Behind a Label
Basic White card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Floral paper: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Basic Black: 3/4″ x 4-1/4″
Label size: 2-3/8″ x 3-5/16″
Scallop Circle size: 2-9/16″
Just a hint of the scallops show behind the label, but I love this look! It adds just a splash of color and interest.
What other die or punch shapes besides circles could you layer a scallop circle behind?
