Embellish a card, page or ancestry project with the Mini Provincial 3D Impresslits Embossing Folder from the Alterations Collection by Tim Holtz for Sizzix. There is one large folder (A2) included in the package that measures 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" x 1/8" and cuts, embosses or debosses a single sheet of paper, vellum, cardstock or metallic foil. It is designed to be used with the Sizzix BIGkick, Big Shot or Vagabond machine (with one Cutting Pad and the machine's included Platform). All items sold separately.
I had been chomping at the bit for these since I saw the announcement last May. I love dresden & my 1st thought was how cool to be able to make my own. But now that I have them, I'm a bit disappointed. The border on the upper portion of the dies are not as close-cropped as they appear in the pic. There is a blank border of approx. 1/8" that makes a difference in the appearance of the die cut. It makes me want to trim the excess myself....that's not good. I don't know if it's just the die cutting machine accident on the 3 I bought, or if they all look like this. If you don't mind that excess border, go for it. The embossing itself is beautiful.
Bought this a little while ago with a view to using on Christmas stuff. Unfortunately with only a few passes through the Big Shot, the embossing folder component bent like a banana and the die fell out. I can still use the die obviously but to get it all lined up is very tricky as the whole thing is not very wide.
