Add funky, hand-lettered sentiments to your paper crafts with the Doodle Alphabet & Numbers Thinlits Dies by Sizzix. The package includes 4 thin metal dies featuring an upper case and lower case alphabet, numbers 0-9 and line accents. The dies measure 2.75" x .5" to 3.875" x 2.375". The set is designed by Sophia Guilar and is compatible with the BIGkick, Vagabond and Big Shot machines when used with a pair of Cutting Pads and the machine's included Platform (all items sold separately).
I absolutely love this font, and I even love the size, but the letters/numbers are small enough that they are somewhat time-consuming to work with. Just made a birthday card using this set and it turned out great. I backed my lightweight cardstock with the scrapbook.com clear double sided adhesive (6" roll) and then ran the cardstock & die through my old Cuttlebug. Let me tell you, those dots on the i and j are tiny, and all the letters are small and a little tricky to work with - hence the time-consuming aspect - but it's really a fun font. And the little heart is way cute. Though small, this is an ideal size to work with on cards, though you probably won't want to use this particular set of dies if you're pressed for time.
This a pretty small alphabet that is great for a small area or you have a long line of "writing" to do on craft paper. I realized it will get lost in the Xyron, so I hand glue the letters. I probably could have used sheet of adhesive, but I wasn't in the mood to run down to a store for a sheet of it since I was already out of the house once. Once the letters were glued on paper, it looked pretty neat.
If you don't mind small letters, it great to have on hand.
