Heartbeat ... Thinlits - Die Cutting Templates by Tim Holtz and Sizzix.
This wonderful heartwarming design features an open heart with the rhythmic squiggle of a heartbeat inside. It also includes 2 message strips (both with squiggles), perfect for layering over the top or for another project. Use this design for layering and adding dimension for cards, scrapbook pages, journaling, mixed media of all kinds.
This template only cuts out the elements of the design - without a rectangle cutout. This means you can place it anywhere you wish on your project. Use the cut out pieces for added dimension or poke out so the layer of artwork underneath shows through.
This set contains 3 templates.
Size of main heart (approx) : 2 7/8" x 2 3/8".
Messages are approx : 4 1/8" x 1 1/8".
Imagine adding many layers into your project that give the appearance that you've spent hours fussy cutting with scissors.
Handy Tip : layer a sheet of double sided adhesive to the back of your cardstock before cutting out. It saves heaps of time when placing small pieces.
Thinlits die cutting templates are wafer thin, chemically etched, metal templates designed to cut, emboss or stencil a single sheet of cardstock, paper, fine metallic foil or vellum.
Because of their intricate details, Thinlits 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 material and then roll through your preferred machine.
Use with any Sizzix die cutting and embossing machines (eg, all Big Shots, Foldaway, Express and Vagabond) and is compatible with most hand-turned machines (eg, Cuttlebug or Spellbinders) but not the Sizzix Sidekick. Check with your machine for which plates to use. All machines sold separately!
Thinlits are also able to emboss when combined with an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber sheet (it presses rather than cuts due to the less pressure). Try misting the paper lightly with water for a deeper impression.
To stencil, trace around the shapes with fine pen or pencil. Apply ink to the die cutting edges to print and emboss at the same time.
This set includes a handy plastic storage envelope. For easy identification, slip the printed label into the envelope with the dies.
