Open the spooky gates to some terrifying Halloween fun when you get creative with the Gate Keeper Thinlits Die Set designed by Tim Holtz for Sizzix. Included in the set are 9 thin metal dies that are compatible with the BIGkick, Big Shot, and Vagabond machines (sold separately). The dies are designed to cut, emboss or stencil a single sheet of cardstock, paper, metallic foil or vellum.
Until I found the right weight of paper I found it hard to cut out without tearing parts of the gate. I used a 65 lb foil cardstock paper and used wax paper behind it and the images came out perfect. The sheen on the paper gave it a realistic feel also.
Reviews of the card I made have been positive and the card can be seen in the gallery.
Used in this card: spooky nite
The gate has a lot of detail in both the base and layer piece. I love that you can also choose to have a full moon or a tiny sliver. The bats are a great addition as well. I think this die has a lot versatility in its uses and can be for more than just Halloween makes.
I really, really like this die! I was looking for more spooky things to add to a project that I am currently working on. And this is definitely it! If your looking for something fun and creative with a spooky look? This is it!! I would recommend this die to everyone!
