Default Large Classic Circle and Oval Nesties

I don't quite understand the scallop question. If you put a large scallop with a large classic, you see only the scallops. I like to use a large scallop with a small classic and see more border.

I copied this from spellbinders website. Maybe it explains it better.

Classic Circles feature four sets of Circle Nestabilities®, including two straight-edge shapes, S4-114 Standard Circles LG and S4-116 Standard Circles SM. These two sets are also found in Nesties™-004. Also included are two classic scalloped-edge shapes, S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles LG and S4-125 Classic Scalloped Circles SM.

Purchasing the Nesties™ Set saves 20% over buying each individually.

The difference between die template sizes within a Nestabilities® set is ½”, which becomes a ¼” border when layering. The difference between LG and SM Nestabilities® sets is ¼”. Combining both the LG and SM sets of Nestabilities® will allow for ⅛” borders when layering.

Actually you understood my question as I hoped. I was endeavouring to find out which two sizes would give me the 1/8th border. I have been used to using punches in the past and like the small borders I was able to achieve.

I like to layer two scalloped pieces of different colors ( circle) and off set the colors. When I tried this with my Large Scallops the border was larger than I usually use and did not achieve the same look.

Thanks so much for the advice. Off to buy the smaller size .
