Hello Baby!

The Scallop Circle Bigz Die lets you think out of the box.  Instead of the standard size card, it lets you create a cute circular card.  The tip to this is that you need to cut your cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 and fold.  Place the folded piece onto your die but when you go to cut, make sure you leave four of the scallops exposed so you are not cutting two separate scallop circles, but have two that stay together with the fold at the top. 

The rest of the card was made by cutting two additional circles using my Circle Scissors Plus.  The Whisper White circle was cut with the setting at 3 1/2 and the Old Olive Designer Paper was cut at 3 1/4".  The giraffe was placed on another piece of Whisper White cardstock, and to this piece I rounded the corners with the Small Corner Punch. 

To make this card I used the following:
Cardstock:  Old Olive #100702, Whisper White #100730
Designer Series Paper:  Old Olive from the Brights Paper Stack #117155
Ink:  Old Olive #102277
Stamp Set:  Animal Stories #116716
Ribbon:  Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta #119256
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Scallop Circle Bigz Die #113468, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder #117335, Circle Scissors Plus #112530

Below is a picture of a card I posted on April of last year using this same technique.  The difference is the circular opening I punched in the top to make it look like a bib.
