Stampin Up Slim Card Dies Set

Here you can see the die set that inspired today’s fun video, the Stampin Up Slim Card dies. This is such a unique set, and I love it for a few reasons. First, I love the design of the large dies. They create big, bold die cuts with beautiful patterns that will perfectly fill the front of a slimline card. Because of the neat patterns and the openings created, there are tons of ways to use these two dies. Also, the border designs are a really nice addition to the set. They allow you to create nice edges on your cards, and they can be used other ways as well, such as on envelopes.
