Amazing Paper Grace June Die of the Month Blog Hop – Victorian Splendor Slimline

What's better than one world?  Well, of course, it's the best of both worlds!  Today 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.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

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.



There are 10 dies included in the Victorian Splendor Slimline.

My Project Today using Victorian Splendor Slimline.

My card project is an A7 (5 x 7) card in portrait orientation.   

I wanted to create something bright and pretty and combined both the beautiful intricate inset slimline and decorative inset border as a gorgeous background for my bouquet of colourful flowers which are arranged around the edge of the intricate decorative topper/sentiment label.

Designer Tip:  Use low tack adhesive tape to keep the inset slimline and decorative inset border in position when die-cutting, to create a nice evenly framed background piece.


I also had fun using the inset slimline as a decorative panel for a cracker style gift box, together with the sentiment label die to create an elegant topper.

I used some mulberry paper flowers from my craft stash to decorate the cracker.
