The bird & cage die is awesome. You won't believe how crisp the cuts are and if you cut paper and cardboard it all lines up just right (and very easily) to make a nice raised image. You can hang things from the holes at the bottom of the cage, too. It's definitely clear that grown-up dies have arrived!
This was the first Tim Holtz die I bought. I have used it several times on cards for weddings to get well cards. It cuts beautifully. Has Tim's style and holes inserted to give you easy design options. The bird is big enough to distress or stamp on. This is a must have die,
It's sturdy and you can use it for cards or scrapbooking or home decor. I've made birthday and sympathy cards with it so far. And Tim Holtz dies are sturdy although they take up more space than some others.
