Love this new release!! So excited to give slim cards a go. Anxiously awaiting restock. Stay well.

233. Mar 28, 2020

This is such an exciting release! I’ve been thinking about long landscape cards, mainly to go into this bunch of envelopes I have. My favorites (of course, more than 1!) are the slim edgers (perfect example – I love it!), the circles, and stitch and diagonal stitched rectangles – I guess, pretty much the whole set! Lol! Anyway, I look forward to getting this set. Yay!!

Hi Pink Fresh! I am in love with these new designs. The idea of having a a new standard card size outside of the the A2 and 5×7 is WONDERFUL. I am looking forward to expanding my card making style. Thank you, and also Jennifer McGuire for her amazing you tube video using your products. The slim line diagonal die is my favorite, and when back in stock I would like to get this. Keep safe!
