One of my favorite NEW items from the Holiday Catalog for the Big Shot are the Expressions Thinlits! Now you can express your love, gratitude, or holiday cheer in a fun, curlicue script.
Here is a card I created using the “love” thinlit.
I really wanted the “love” thinlit to be the focal image so I cut the card slightly larger than the thinlit. This card measures 4-1/4″ x 3″.
The Expression Thinlits are so easy to use…
Here is the Sandwich (from bottom to top):
#1: Magnetic Platform
#2: Cutting Pad
#3: Cardstock or Paper
#4: Expression Thinlit
#5: Cutting Pad
After you run your thinlits through the Big Shot, they will be stuck in the die. All you have to do to get them out is use your Paper Piercing Tool and lightly poke the holes on the opposite side.
So easy and so cute!!
TIP: If you have any troubles with them sticking…..try using a piece of wax paper BETWEEN the Thinlit and the cardstock you are cutting. The wax paper will “stay in” the thinlit–that’s OK–leave it there. Then you don’t have to use each time!

As always–if you have ANY QUESTIONS on any of these cards, or anything I post–please ask! I would love to share more, but since most things are somewhat “self explanatory” I would rather spend time creating than typing all the details–but if you need more details/info–I am HAPPY to share!
HAVE A STAMP HAPPY DAY!
