This set of 14 dies is inspired by the Nordic countries in Europe. These winter images are designed by Tim Holtz for Sizzix. These Thinlits dies are wafer-thin, chemically etched dies that are designed to cut, emboss, or stencil. They are designed to be used with one sheet of cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum at a time. These dies are compatible with leading die cutting machines (sold separately). You will love the multi-faceted layering results these dies achieve and will love creating winter and Christmas cards, scrapbook pages, tags, and other paper crafting projects with these dies.
