Die Cut Scraps Cards + Giveaway

Hello! Today I am sharing ideas for using die cut scraps on cards. I focus on using background and border dies… and also share several slimline card designs.

[If the video is not visible, please head HERE to YouTube to watch. All supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you. I appreciate your support so very much!]

I cover quite a bit of info in this video, so be sure to watch it! I share ideas for stretching your dies… and creating long and narrow cards. I hope it is helpful!

Keep in mind, dimensions for “slimline cards” (long and narrow cards) can vary between companies. Pinkfresh Studio based their dies (which I use in this video) off a traditional slimline envelope, which is 3 7/8″ x 8 7/8″. The card dimension would be 3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″. I roughly followed these dimensions, but all would fit in a business envelope.

Here are the cards from my video along with the main products featured. For the full supply list, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post.
