The Moroccan Card Front Thinlits Die creates a stunning, detailed background for any card. Created by Rachael Bright for Sizzix, this die measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/2". Thinlits are made through a chemical etching process and are designed to cut through single sheets of paper, cardstock, metallic foil and vellum. They can also be used as stencils to give you more creative options. Thinlits are for use with the BIGkick, Big Shot or Vagabond machines with a set of Cutting Pads and the machine's Platform. When using the Essentials Platform or Solo Platform and Shim, you'll need an Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter (all items sold separately). Because these dies are very detailed, you may need to run them through your machine as many as three times to achieve a perfect cut. If you find it difficult to remove your shape from the die, try putting wax paper between your die and your material. These dies can also emboss (the machine's Platform, an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber sheet are needed; all items sold separately). The set also includes a storage envelope for your dies.
