Spellbinders Slimline Classic Card with Ciao Bella The Muse

Hello, Friends!  Today I’m excited to share the newly released Spellbinders Slimline Classic Card Making Die with you.  If you are a fan of slimline cards, as I am, then this is definitely a die you’ll want to add to your crafty stash!  Elegant, easy to make cards are a snap to make when you let this amazing die do all the heavy lifting for you!  It’s one of the April 2021 Releases over on the Spellbinders page.

Spellbinders Slimline Classic….Meet Ciao Bella The Muse

I  paired these lovely Classic Slimline Etched Dies up with soft blush papers from Ciao Bella’s The Muse paper collection.  Here’s how simple it is to put this elegant card creation together.

  • First, create an 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ top fold slimline card base from cream cardstock.
  • Now cut an 8 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ panel  from Ciao Bella’s The Muse collection to line the card front.
  • Next, create a center panel from an 8 3/8″ x 2 3/8″ from the same collection.
  • Then back this panel with foam tape or waste chipboard.  Center it and adhere it to the first panel.
  • Now, die cut the main filigree and sentiment twice using cream cardstock.  Layer together with thin foam tabs between them to create subtle dimension.
  • Then die cut four corner pieces from cream cardstock and tuck in each corner.
  • Finally, add ivory roses and bows on each side of the die cut panel.

Place ivory flat back pearls in the corners and ends of the die cuts.  So easy, so elegant!  Who could ask for anything more?

A Peek Inside

Add a pocket inside the card.  Then create a little gift wallet with more of the designer papers.

There’s room to write a small note and tuck in a little gift.

I hope you’ll take a peek at the other slimline card dies in The Slimline Collection.  There are some wonderful options available! Spellbinders is also offering a Free Spring Blooms Bonus with a $100 purchase right now.  I guess I’d better go shopping!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I know Spellbinders doesn’t list this collection as a Becca Feeken set; but it sure is her style. I adore this paper and have ordered it. Very romantic card from tip-to-tip; just gorgeous, Kathy. Every thing about this card is elegant, softly romantic, and sophisticated. Love the slimline cards and the new slimline collection from Spellbinders. You are so great at color choices and layouts and afforded me yet another smiling day for which I am grateful.
