Thinlits create dazzling detailed shapes for more creative cardmaking and papercrafting projects. These wafer thin chemically etched die templates are designed to cut, emboss or stencil a single sheet of cardstock, paper, metallic foil or vellum.
Because of their small details, Thinlits dies may require up to three passes to cut. If extra help is needed for easier separation of the die-cut shape from the template, place wax paper between the Thinlits die and your paper and then roll through your preferred machine.
Thinlits can also emboss when the machine's included platform is combined with an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber sheet (ie, less pressure so it doesn't cut, but simply leaves an image).
To use the Thinlit as a stencil, place the die over desired material and apply ink or chalk to the die indentations. This technique can be used alone or to enhance embossed designs.
About the Embossing Folder...
A Texture Fades Embossing Folder is a tool used in papercraft and mixed media for adding dimension to card, papers, metallic foils, vellum and some textiles. It is made of durable plastic, hinged at the short end (generally referred to as "top").
To use, simply place your paper or card inbetween the plastic and run through your favourite machine. The paper or card will be pressed into shape, giving a raised dimensional effect.
Thinlits and Texture Fades are designed to be used with the Sizzix Sidekick Machine but they're also compatible with most hand-cranked die cutting machines including the Cuttlebug, Spellbinder and Sizzix BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond (all sold separately).
