Die-Versions: Oh Thank You!

Everyone here at Scrap Shotz hopes you have had a terrific Canada Day and if you are an American friend, we wish you a wonderful Fourth of July!

There are oodles of fabulous products in the store now so watch over the next few weeks for samples of the items. Let me start off with the Die-Versions: Sweet Spot Oh Thank You die. Not only does this die have a super cute font, it is one of the few Thank You dies that I have seen in a circle and cuts like buttah!

For my samples below, my youngest needed a few thank you cards for a recent birthday. A card doesn't get any easier and faster than this!

Supplies:  My Minds Eye (pattern paper), Bazzill smooth (cardstck); Bow-Easy (typing bow); ribbon (source unknown)

My thoughts about the die....well this is the second Die-Versions die I have used and I have been thoroughly impressed by how sturdy it is given the "fragility" of the die design. Other dies have I have used in the past with slim and intricate designs have broken or crinkled in my die cutter (yup, I put my products through their paces!) As well, I usually cut 2-3 pieces of cardstock at a time - despite the thickness, each die cut was perfect. However, 3 is the limit! Lastly, the die worked wonderfully on thick cardstock, pattern paper, very light "aluminium" like tin foil and thin very starched fabric - burlap was a bit of a challenge but I think it had to do with my much loved plates than the die...however I will try it again soon!

I hope you will give Die-Versions a try!
