The Slimline Surprises Die set has the main mechanism for creating a large slider slimline, but it also has 2 dies that can create a rip strip for a slimline card and an A2 card as well as a tag top die that can create a tag of any length. In the photo below, I’m showing the 5 individual dies that I will use to create various parts of the card today.
Below I show the use of the tag topper die. If you cut a slimline sized panel (8.5 inches by 3.5 inches) and place the tag topper at the top as shown in the first image, you will cut a slimline sized tag as shown in the first and second image.
The rip strip dies are easy to use, and I have more details on the video where you can see it in action. I die cut the rip strip into the slimline tag, put double-sided adhesive tape around all the edges and taped in a gift card from Starbucks. Using 80 lb cardstock worked best for making the rip strip.
I prepared the mechanism for the slider by die cutting a tab and the slider mechanism (I die cut the mechanism out of 110lb cardstock, a sheet from Slimline Paper Pad-Winter Hues,, some glitter cardstock and from acetate) Only place adhesive on the very bottom of the mechanism and the sides so that the tab can move freely.
Thank you so much for stopping by- I hope that this post and the accompanying video provided more insight into the the Slimline Surprises Die set.
