Create the perfect wedding or Valentine's Day card using this set of Love Birds & Hearts Thinlits Dies. Jen Long-Philipsen designed these dies for Sizzix. Included in this package are four very thin dies. The designs include a very detailed heart, a cut-out heart border, a pair of love birds in a cage and a two-hearts-and-arrow shape. They range in size from 1 1/4" x 1 1/2" to 3 5/8" x 3 1/2". Made in a process called chemical etching, these dies are capable of cutting one sheet or paper, metallic foil, cardstock or vellum. Thinlits dies are easy to store and quite portable. These dies are easy to use in a Vagabond, BIGkick,or Big Shot machine with the use of Cutting Pads and the machine's Platform. If you are using the Essentials Platform or Solo Platform and Shim, you will also need an Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter (all items sold separately). Since these dies are very detailed, they may require as many as three passes through your machine to fully cut. If you find it difficult to remove your shape from the die, place wax paper between the die and the paper. Included in this package is a storage envelope to hold your die.
