Using the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge, I cut today's card at 5-1/2" which makes into a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card (see above, page 52).
The corresponding circle can be found also on the same cartridge on page 48 and the cream circle was cut at 2-1/2" and the brown circle was cut at 2-3/4".
Both the scalloped circle (cut at 3") and the "78" (cut at 1-1/2", welded) came from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge but both a similar font and scalloped circle can be substituted out using the free Cricut Craft Room Basics set of images found in the Cricut Craft Room online program.
I was asked in the comments how I figured out which shapes went with these different swing cards. Basically, it's a bit of trial and error made much easier by using the Cricut Craft Room online program to easily size the layers and see how they fit. For more information about sizing layers in the Cricut Craft Room, including a video, click HERE.
Another way this could be done is by looking through the handbooks, knowing that Art Philosophy has a very wide variety of shapes, using a ruler and measuring the height of the corresponding shape on the cut out card, and then dialing that into the Cricut and testing it out.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions or anytime you have a question. Sometimes I forget to answer questions found in the comments in my next post - I will try and do better!
