This die cuts a beautiful doily that can be used so many different ways. I have used it on cards especially, and it creates a lovely effect as a 'mask' for a walnut ink over-spray. If it is used without the "dryer sheet" release method it is a lot of work to get the bazillion tiny pieces out, so I definitely suggest going online to see how that is done if you don't already use the technique. It has become one of my favorites since I discovered the dryer sheet method that makes all the difference when using such an intricate dye.
This die cuts beautifully and makes a stunning intricate doily. I have cut it from card stock and book pages both turned out beautifully. I cut mine from Empress machine using the standard plates for die cutting. I would suggest you have one of those small rolling brush tools to clean out all the tiny background pieces, otherwise that job would be tedious. But I could do it quickly with the brush tool. This is a beautiful die to add to your die collection!
I usually get along really well with the thinlits dies and this is by no means the most detailed die I have, but it's the hardest one to clean and it requires a few runs through my big-shot before it cuts all the way though. This makes me think twice before using this die.
It is a lovely design and I will definitely be using it for more projects, but I think it could have functioned better.
