Fabulous Mini-Slimline Dies from Pinkfresh Studio: Essentials Die Release and Giveaway!

Hello everybody! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Today I'm excited to be joining Pinkfresh Studio for their Essentials Die release. This release is packed full of amazing dies and I'll be sharing two cards that I made with the new Mini Slimline Essentials Bundle Dies. I love these dies because they come with two complete layering sets of dies for mini slimline cards. They also include two sets of detailed circle dies that are sized perfectly for mini slims. 

For my first card I used the new Mini Slimline dies to cut layers from white paper as well as from the Let's Stay Home paper collection.

I glued my layers together adding a yellow layer cut with the Essentials Ornate Banner Die Set. I finished the card off by adding a sentiment from the Classic Words Die Set.

The last step was to create myself a coordinating envelope using the new Mini Slimline Envelope Dies. I cut the main piece once and the wing piece twice. Hot tip: if you are cutting your envelope from patterned paper make sure you cut one wing from the "wrong" side of the paper so that when you put your envelope together your pattern will be on the correct side of the paper.

For my second card I used the new Mini Slim Line card dies again and added in the new Essentials Stitched Scalloped Circle, the Foliage Frame Die, the Sentiment Suite You Die and the Simply Sentiments Thank you stamp set. I started by die cutting my layers and gluing them together.

I cut out the Stitched Scallop Circles and taped them together in the back so I could use both of them. I ink blended them with some Sky Blue ink before adhering them with foam tape. Then I added in some vellum foliage from the Foliage Frame Die.

I heat embossed my sentiment, added some pearls and jewels, then made a matching envelope and called it good.
