There are two super exciting new Big Shot dies available form today – the Thinlit dies – they make creating flip cards super fast & of course they co-ordinate with lots of Stampin’ Up! punches, stamps and other dies.
There is a really cute You Tube video where you can see them in motion – of course they can be extended to make fold out cards or just use the elements that come with them alone.
A couple of tips I’ve found from using them this week
1. If you are die cutting the base – you can get 4 from a sheet of 12″x12″ card stock with very little left over, much less waste than trying to cut them from A4 sheets
2. If you are die cutting the elements that are smaller or have thin components – use a piece of wax paper between the die and the card stock to prevent things from getting stuck and tearing.
You can order them online right now here or if you do want to see them in the ‘flesh’ we’ll be using the circle one in class next week (we used the label one in todays class).
