Video - Die Cut Crazy Series - Slimline Cards Made Easy With Dies

I am die cut crazy and freely admit that and my newest video in my Die Cut Crazy Series shows how to make easy and amazing slimline cards with dies. Slimline cards are trending right now and several companies have come out with dies specific for this size of card which fit into legal size envelopes. Most of my cards in this video feature slimline dies from Whimsy Stamps and I just ordered some new slimline dies from Pinkfresh Studio. 

I have a hard time taking pictures of these cards in my photo set up because of their longer size, but you can see these clearer in the video. This is the card I made in the video and I used the Whimsy Stamps Marquee die which has stitches around the edge and in the windows. 

The mermaids (IO die) and mermaid's tail (Taylored Expressions die) are gorgeous with sparkle created with new Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes and Aged Marine Embossing Enamel from Stampendous as I show in the video. The perfect sentiment is a die from Impression Obsession. 
I used the Whimsy Stamps Window Slimline Die along with some super cute bunnies from Impression Obsession and another perfect sentiment from Sue Wilson. 

I created a baby card years ago with safety pins telling the baby's  story and recreated it using the slimline marquee die set from Whimsy Stamps. Here is the inside of the baby boy card:

Would you like to win one of these cards? I have decided to spread joy by sending out many of the cards you see on my blog and in my videos. You have three chances at winning one of these cards: one winner will be chosen from comments on my blog posts today and tomorrow (March 30 and 31st); one winner will be chosen from comments on my Instagram posts today and tomorrow; and 5 winners will be chosen from the comments on the video itself (you MUST go to YouTube to watch the video and comment, not just watch it on here if you get it in your mailbox. I appreciate my blog subscribers, but the minutes watch on YouTube is what is needed to grow there.) 

In your comment you must tell me your favorite card from all the cards you saw in the video and here and where you live. I am sorry I can only send the cards to USA mailing addresses. Leave your comments before Monday April 6th and I will announce the winners and ask for your mailing addresses then, so be sure to check back to see if you won. 

**Don't forget to watch and hop in the huge Save the Crafty YouTuber video hop too with prizes at every stop. You have until April 5th to comment here for a chance at my prize package of dies, stamps and crafty goodies valued at $50.**

I am entering the first card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

Great cards. I really like the rabbit one a lot. That is so cute as is the baby card with the safety pins.

I like the mermaid card. The embossing looks great.

My favorite is the bunny card. I also like how you made the mermaids. I live in Ohio.
