Embossed Edge Nesting Slimline Dies by Kat Scrappiness

21 reviews


Kat Scrappiness is pleased to present our first Nesting Slimline Dies

Slimline cards measure 8.5 x 3.5 and fit into a standard #10 business sized envelope.  Check out Kat's entire line of Slimline Envelopes here.

There are 5 dies in this set and the largest leaves a perfect small border around the edge of your card.  (See photos for examples). 

The approximate measurements for our Embossed Edge Slimline Dies are as follows:

  • 8 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • 7 1/2 x 2 5/8
  • 6 3/4 x 2
  • 6 1/8 x 1 1/8
  • 4 3/4 x 5/16

The Embossed Edge SLIMLINE Dies are unique in that while they cut the shape, they leave a small embossed border around the edge of the die cut shape.  The following image shows the results cut using the Cuttlebug vs the Gemini cutting machines.

You can experiment with your die cutting sandwiches to get the depth that you prefer.

Kat Scrappiness custom dies are high-quality steel and are compatible with most die cutting machines!  



No matter what die cutting machine you use, I suggest using one plate as the bottom plate and one as the top every time you die cut.  That way only one plate gets cut into.  In fact, I wrote on my plates with a black sharpie “TOP PLATE” and “BOTTOM PLATE” so I don’t’ mix them up.  Each time you die cut you will want to flip and reverse your plates to keep them from warping.  Warped plates do not cut well at all.

  1. Background dies and dies with straight edges should always be placed onto the plates at a slight angle (diagonal). This way when it goes into the machine, the corner goes in first and it will not only give you a better die cut, but it will also keep your die cutting machine good working order.
  2. When die cutting an intricate die, you will always want to use new, un-warped plates.
  3. ALWAYS cut your die with the cut side UP, especially with intricate dies. This will apply the most pressure from the rollers to the blade of the die and not to the back of it.
  4. If you are having trouble die cutting an intricate die, and you are using a Sizzix Big Shot, use the Sizzix Precision Plate. It’s a great tool for intricate dies.
  5. If your die is not cutting all the way through the paper and you’ve used all of the tips above, add a metal shim such as this one from Lawn Fawn.
  6. If you run a die through and it doesn’t cut well, before you add a shim, make sure to remove all of the paper outside of the die before you run It through again. It will help you get a cleaner cut on intricate dies.  (Thanks to my friend Gina Marie for this tip!)

    Simple elegance

    I love the embossed edge nesting dies. Was very happy to find them in slimline as well as the other standard card panel sizes. That little extra detail adds a simple elegance to cards. Thanks for offering this product line!

    Great Slimline dies!

    These dies are great for matting on slimline Cards. And as an extra bonus I found out I could use the most narrow center nested die to slice out sentiment strips with a beautiful embossed edge! Great purchase I will use a lot.
