Default Looking for larger dies

Also posted in Tools - I use a Cuttlebug. Would like a die that will cut a scallop on the card edge,so 4 1/4" wide. I have several that are 6" and that means turning the card base sideways and trying to figure how NOT to cut thru bottom layer. Frrustrated.

Also, I'd like to find some sentiment dies that are easy for stiff fingers to work with. At least 1" high, and just the basics--HB, TU, Celebrate, Hello.
Thanks in advance.

You might want to try Lawn Fawn for your scalloped die edge. I know I have one, but I’m sorry I don’t remember the manufacturer.

For sentiment dies, I’ve been using the Altenew mega dies a ton. They take up the whole width of an A2 card and make a dramatic statement.

Agree with the suggestion to look at the Altenew mega word dies!
For the scalloped edge, until you find a size to work in your bug, maybe you can trim the bottom of the front panel of a top fold card, and then use the scallop die you have on a separate panel and adhere it to the trimmed card front. Hopefully you will find a die that works without having to add extra steps! I think SU made one but I don't know if it is in a current catalog...edgelits or something like that. Maybe someone will list it in the ISO/Buy/Sell forum. Hope you find what you need!

Thanks for the link! I saw a cute birthday one: "you can handle one more candle" in a square with negative space words by Gina Marie.

I don’t understand the ones that she has copyrighted. Does that mean another company can’t make the same design? A few of them seem to be basic shapes, but a lot of the basic shapes don’t have copyright written across them. On another note, some had copyright gmd written so many times, you really can’t see what the dies look like.

Would you want a scallop full layer? This set is 40% off, can make that and has other stuff.

Probably not--but that's a useful set, and the price is tempting. Appreciate you bringing it to my attention.
