Sweet friends. So often with the Die of the Month, followers ask us to give them ideas of what can be done with the die. Today, the Creative Team has a blog hop to share that inspiration. We are introducing a new Slimline Die that is part of an A7 Card Front – we call it an all-in-one. Who knew that slimline could look so feminine – welcome the slim new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2021, Victorian Splendor Slimline.

Our inspiration is always being able to get the most out of a die set and this one scores high on the bar for functionality and feminine appeal. If you can imagine a “Card Creator” type of die that has an inset Slimline, a decorative inset Border, and a sentiment label that could all be used in a Card Front – then you’d be looking at Victorian Splendor Slimline. It has A2 and A7 elements. It functions as a Card Front and pretends to be a slimline – all in one.
Here are some ideas that might inspire you to use pieces of the set:
1. Pull the mini-sized slimline out and use it separately.
2. Inlay the border at the bottom and top of a landscape A7 Card.
3. Create a tall gatefold by folding in the border panel on two cuts of the A7 card front.
For today I made a box (surprise)! I always make boxes with the dies I create because I love creating ensembles. This particular box will hold some special tea for the recipient that gets the matching gatefold card. It was easy to make – this one is 3.25″ x 3.25″. Give me a shout-out in the comments if you want a tutorial on this one. To decorate it I simply glued the border die-cut to the edges – it takes two. For the lid, I simply cut the length I needed and adhered the pieces to the top surface of the box.
Designer Tip: The small flowers that come with the die set are so trendy. I keep them handy and whenever I’m cutting anything, I include them on the cutting deck and save them for later. That way, I’ll always have little flowers handy.
