Without a doubt, I'll miss the retiring Wild About You stamp set, especially that cute elephant! So I had to do one last card with my Stamp Club using this image. This 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 card features the elephant & bird stamped on whisper white cardstock with a black circular frame on top. We used the Circle Scissors Plus to cut the frame.....cut the inner circle first, then without moving the tool, adjust it to a larger size and cut the outer circle. Easy peasy. Though it's hard to make out in the picture, we embossed small polka dots on the strip of going gray cardstock using the Big Shot with the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I texturz plate.
Whimsical Tip: The key to cutting perfect circles with the Circle Scissors Plus tool is to make sure you securely adhere the cardstock to the glass mat. If the cardstock slips at all, your circle will be off or even ruined. I use double-sided tape to make sure my cardstock is stuck well to the mat. You can also use Dotto temporary adhesive.
