The five dies included in the Sizzix Penguin & Candy Cane Framelits Die and Stamp set are everything you need to create embellishments for your Christmas cards and layouts. The shapes included in this set are a cute peguin, a bow, a present, a candy cane and the phrase, "Merry Christmas!" Use these shapes together or on their own for even more creative options! These shapes will measure, when cut, 2 5/8" x 1 3/8", 1 1/8" x 2 1/2", 1 1/4" x 1/18", 2 3/8" x 2 5/8", and 1 1/4" x 1 3/8". Designed by Stephanie Barnard, these dies work best when used with materials like cardstock, paper, vellum and metallic foil. Framelits are very thin dies made in a process called chemical etching. This process ensures that the edge of these dies is flaw-free. They will give you a perfect cut every time. These dies can also be used as stencils, if desired. Framelits are designed for use in a BIGkick, Big Shot or Vagabond machine. Also needed are a set of Cutting Pads and the machine's Platform. If you use the Essentials Platform or the Solo Platform and Shim, the Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter is needed as well. All items are sold separately. A bonus clear stamp set is included in this package. It will add sentiments and embellishments that will work prefectly with the dies included in this set. Stamp the image first, and then use the coordinating Framelits die to accurately cut out the stamped image.
