Folded Cards with the Scallop Big Shot die

 I made a couple of fun cards using the Scallop Circle Die and the Big Shot machine from Stampin' Up!

Scallop die It's difficult to see in a photo WHERE the scallop is, so for demonstrations purposes only, I'm setting an orange scallop on this die, just so you can see where the scallop cuts.





   Bib card 1   

 To make this Bib Card, you'll need to fold your cardstock in 1/2 (my piece started at 5"x11" - then I folded  it in 1/2)

Then I placed the folded cardstock on the die like this and ran it through the Big Shot machine:

Bib card placement 

Remember, the orange scallop is only there so you can see where the die actually  cuts.. you don't put a scallop on your die when cutting the folded cardstock.

Bib punch Then once your cardstock is punched out, use the Wide Oval Punch to punch out the "scoop" of the neck in the folded side of the cardstock.

Punch 2 holes with the Crop A Dile and set 2 jumbo eyelets in the holes.  Run ribbon through the holes to look like the strings on a bib.

I used the same wide oval punch to punch out the baby stamp from the Punches Three hostess set.  Ink and c/s: Baja Breeze.

I used a paper piercer to put a hole in each scallop.

The card folds at the top and opens at the bottom.


 Scallop xmas card 

Scallop xmas card placement To make a scalloped card with a folded top like the one above, place your FOLDED cardstock like this on your scallop die, then run it through the Big Shot machine.

Wendie aka tankergypsie

thank you for this tutorial - I had a customer ask me over the phone yesterday how to do this. I explained it over the phone, but sometimes you just need the visual thing. She's not on the net, so I printed your tutorial out and will send it to her.

OMG, Patty! Just LOVE that bib! I'm going to try to make it to show my campers this weekend - it is just too cute! Great tutorial photos, too. Thanks.


I have toget a BIG SHOT so I can get some of these die cuts. This big card is to cute.

Penny Ginnery

Thank you for sharing the bib card. How did you tie the ribbon onto the eyelet? I see you tied the ribbon together at the top...but how did you attach it. Is there a knot on the back side?

Thank you, Thank you Patty for your awesome baby bib tutorial. I made 30 baby boy bib thank you's for our DIL Karla. She loved them :-) I hope you do not mind that I linked your blog on my SCS description. BTW, I used Nestie's with my SU Big Shot as I did not have the SU scallop circle die. It worked great! Thanks again...nancy
