The same applies as my review of Lawn Fawn's "Hashtag Awesome" Dies. The dies are cheaply manufactured, the picture of the product ("Lawn Fawn - Lawn Cuts - Dies - Wish You Were Here") shows words and designs that are not included in the package, and there are no outlines of the states on the U.S. map and none of the countries on the globe. This product cannot be used for a quality design without purchasing the acrylic stamp set, stamp pad, and paints. I suggest Lawn Fawn picture only the products actually included in the package.
The dies, supposedly made of 100% high-quality steel, are very thin and must go through a Sizzix Big Shot at least twice to cut through ordinary scrapbooking paper. They also bend easily. In the future, I will stick with Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix. His designs are sturdy, cut easily, and I've used them numerous times without incident. There is also a lot of detail within each design (not just an outline). I'm very disappointed with Lawn Fawn dies!
This is a very nice die set to compliment the Wish You Were Here Stamp Set! The cuts create a nice border around the stamped images (you can easily line up the die after stamping and use a bit of low-tack tape to secure it for cutting or you can stamp after the die cut paper has been cut out.)
The red line indicates where the die will cut around some of the stamped images, which is generally around the outside edge with a little bit of a border - no individual states or countries from the globe are cut (there is a Wish You Were Here Too stamp and die set for Alaska and Hawaii that do cut those states out by themselves, though.)
For someone like me who loves maps, this is a very fun set to have to play with! I simply embossed the stamped image to create little pockets for watercoloring the states I wanted to focus on. I also went around the outside border with color that stops a the edge of the map.
