I love this die, it really comes out nicely. I used it on the front of Valentine cards to rave reviews. I used card stock and also tried it with a thinner paper that worked well too. I was given a very helpful hint for using these intricate metal dies and I used it with this the first few cuts. Place a piece of wax paper between your die and the paper when you're making the "sandwich". Run intricate dies through your cutter 3 or 4 times. The wax paper is amazing. The paper and the wax paper come off very easily and seems to "prime" the die. I was amazed, I thought I'd have to dig the paper off the die but that wasn't the case. It is a lovely die, and different then other's I've seen.
I really wasn't drawn to this die until I saw it in a video. It is beautiful! I just had to add it to my collection. Sometimes my creativity just needs a little jump start. I can't wait to use it.
