Hello crafty friends, I'm up on the ScrapbookPal blog today with another fun project featuring Spellbinders Postage Edge Slimline Dies. Slimline cards are such a nice change of pace when making cards. They give you ample space for lots of creativity and they fit perfectly into business sized envelopes.
The Postage Edge Slimline Dies are part of the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken. This set has six thin metal cutting dies. For a subtle WOW factor, stack them with the complementary slimline shapes that have finishing edges like her Fluted Classics or Hemstitch Collection and others alike.
I started today's project by creating a white slimline, left fold card base that measures 4"x9". Using the largest Postage Edge Slimline die, I cut a panel out of white cardstock, and I cut a blue panel using the dotted slimline layering die and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Spellbinders Circle Illusion 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered the blue panel to the white panel using Scor-Tape.
I then glued the flowers over top of the blue panel and wrapped some silver thread twine around the postage edge panel, adding a charm for added detail.
To finish it off, I attached the postage edge panel to the card front using more of the Scor-Tape. A quick and easy card for today! But don't go yet, as I have a bonus card for you!
I wanted to use these same Postage Edge Slimline Dies to make a vintage style card using some retired scrapbook paper that needs to get used up. I love the look of the entire collection of Postage Edge Die Shapes. They're so versatile and can be used for any projects. You'll find them in Slimline, like I used today, Ovals, Squares, Rectangles and Circles.
Here's a list of products I used today that can be found at ScrapbookPal:
I'm so glad you stopped by today! I hope you enjoyed today's project and are inspired to try out these wonderful new dies.
