Feathered Friends dies by Cheery Lynn Designs feature four (4) custom designed birds for use during any season as well as for that birdhouse gathering on the front of your next card. The four birds include a Cardinal (measuring: .75" x 2.25") ~ a Blue Jay (measuring: 2.25" x .625") ~ a Dove (measuring: 2.75" x 1.25") and a Chickadee (measuring: 2" x 1"). They are mounted on a magnet sheet for storage.
These are custom craft dies proudly made in the USA from high quality steel and they are compatible with most die-cutting machines and provide endless design options. The wire frame dies are held together with thin tabs. These tabs help to keep the dies in place during manufacturing. You may break apart these dies by bending them back and forth. Caution is advised for any sharp burrs resulting from breaking apart this type of die. It is advisable to trim sharp burrs with your scissors, nail clippers or you can also use a pair of wire snips to cut the dies apart or to trim rough and jagged edges near the broken tabs.
I have used Cheery Lynn Dies since 2009 and they are just as sharp and clearly embossing today as they were 9 years ago. Their website states “Our dies are developed with purpose and passion in order to provide crafters, artists, designers and DIY enthusiasts with the best possible experience, enjoy the best product quality and longevity, and have a wide selection of detailed, effective and dynamic designs to choose from.” There is no doubt in my mind that they have fulfilled their goal.
