Scallop Half Circle Card

In February, I shared a file for a large circle (nearly a full 12 x 12 page) with small scallops. Here is a LINK to that post with more explanation about the design and the file download link. The file uses Plantin Schoolbook since it must be cut on the Expression.

If you cut that file, cut the circle in half, then score and fold the half circle in half again, you can make an interesting shaped card.

My test cut of the scalloped circle was in a lilac. I thought it looked a bit "Springy" and used it to make the card. I cut some strips of dots from a DCWV glitter mat stack from last summer and rounded the ends to fit the scallops. Then I added three flowers with "gem" centers in colors to coordinate with the dotted strips.

I haven't added a sentiment yet - I am not sure what I will use the card for. This is an oversize card and will fit in a square envelope for a 6 x 6 card (remember, if you mail this in the US it does need extra postage). Of course, you can always hand deliver it.

Above is one more photo looking down into the card. What is it about scallops that just seems to make people happy?

(I wanted to share the filigree card topper file tonight, but I am having an issue with some of the test cuts. I think the problem is between Design Studio and my baby bug, but I want to be sure before I share the file. I also managed to misplace the cuts I made to photograph - I was finishing some swaps and I think they got lost in the shuffle. Tomorrow I will be clearing things up in my scraproom - I have illusions that order will be restored (!) So the filigree file will be here soon....)


  1. Neat shaped card. You think of such great ideas for all the cuts.

  2. Wow, they say great minds think alike, well your mind is greater then mine, lol. I have made a set of cards for my swop on the Cricut MB and designed almost the same shape except the back of mine are not scalloped. Thank you for your great designs I love visiting your blog.

  3. I absolutely love it. Thank you so much for sharing this file. You are just amazing!

  4. How can I get this cut file? I would love to try this.

  5. There is a link to the post with the .cut file in the first paragraph above - have fun with this!
