I have seen several stampers cutting their Stampin' Up! embossing folders to create other patterns and designs.. so I thought WHY NOT CUT OUT THE OVAL shape so I don't have to use the wood frame (see THIS POST).
I used my Stampin' Up! Hobby Blade to cut the oval.
How great that the folders are so affordable that I can create several different shapes if I want to! 🙂 You can use the Oval Scallop die as a cutting guide.
