This week i was lucky to be able to play with a really gorgeous die called Sparkle from Tattered Lace which was sent to TTPHC by the lovely Stephanie Weightman!
Now you can get these dies from a lot of craft shops, but primarily from crafting.co.uk .
Now i know for a fact that http://crafting.co.uk have this on sale as well as a number of other lovely dies.
So this is Sparkle
And this is the lovely Christmas card i made with this gorgeous die.
Look at the really intricate lines in the oval frame work...beautiful!
The Christmas tree looks great embossed!
Now as much as i love these dies you really have to put it through the die cutter a number of times to get a clean cut and sadly even though i really tried all sorts of different combinations of die cutting plates on my Ebosser i couldn't get the Christmas tree to fully cut out so i ended up using it by embossing the die, which i have to say still came out looking lovely.
So i love the die its worth buying and great for Christmas and i think you need a better sandwich for cutting the tree, maybe it was the Ebosser and a different die cutting machine may get a cleaner cut but that's what i use as i cant crank the dies through any more...lol
