Using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies:
These thinlits are intricate dies and have many little pieces that are cut from the main image. As such, you need to be prepared to poke out a few of these tiny pieces when you release the die from the paper.
The method that I use is to put a piece of wax paper between the thinlit and the paper. The wax paper helps the die release from the thinlit. I also run the sandwich back and forth in the Big Shot about 3 times.
The Beautiful Butterflies can be cut from Vellum to give them a translucent and delicate feel. Before attaching to the card front, lightly sponge ink onto the vellum Be careful though, so you don’t tear the butterfly.
