Create a stunning, unique Christmas card using this Sizzix Thinlits die set. There are five dies included in this package. The main design is an eye-catching Christmas tree made of swirls. There are also smaller holly shapes and a star die. These dies range in size from 1/4" x 1/4" to 4 1/4" x 6 3/8". The dies will cut through a single sheet of paper, metallic foil, vellum or cardstock. Designed by Jen Long, these intricately-detailed dies are made in a process called chemical etching. Thinlits dies are easy to transport and easy to store, because they are thin. These dies can be used in a BIGkick, Big Shot or Vagabond machine with the use of Cutting Pads and the machine's Platform. If you are using the Essentials Platform or Solo Platform and Shim, an Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter is also needed (all items sold separately). Please note that these dies are very detailed and may require as many as three passes through your machine to fully cut. If you are having trouble removing your shape from the die, try using a piece of wax paper between the material and the die. For even more options, these dies can be embossed (the machine's Platform, an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber sheet are needed; all items sold separately). You can also use these very thin dies as stencils, either on their own or to add further details to the embossed design. Included is a storage envelope to hold your die. You will also receive instructions on how to make the perfect sandwich in Sizzix machines to use these dies in this package.
