Add a touch of vintage elegance to your cards and layouts with this set of Thinlits dies from Sizzix. Doily and Doily Border #2 are very detailed dies. They will look great when used together or try them on their own for even more options. Jen Long-Philipsen designed this two-die set. The border die measures 1/2" x 4 1/2", while the round doily is 4 5/8" x 4 5/8". Thinlits are very thin dies made in a process known as chemical etching. Thinlits dies work best when used with one sheet of cardstock, paper, vellum or metallic foil. They are lightweight, easy to store and easy to bring with you to crops and classes. Cut these dies by running them through a BIGkick, Vagabond, or Big Shot machine with a set of Cutting Pads and the machine's Platform. If you are using the Solo Platform and Shim or the Essentials Platform, you will also need a Solo Adapter or an Extended Adapter (all items sold separately). Thinlits dies are very intricate, and may need up to three passes through a machine to fully cut your shape. If you are having trouble removing your shape from the die, try placing a piece of wax paper between your material and your die. For even more options, Thinlits can also be used to emboss. If you wish to emboss your shape, you will need the machine's Platform, an Impressions Pad and a Silicone Rubber Sheet (not included). These dies can also be used as stencils. Try stenciling on the embossed image for even more options. Included in this package is a storage envelope for your dies and a diagram that will explain how to use the die in each Sizzix machine.
