I just love it when Stampin’ UP! offers large background dies. And the Florentine Thinlit Die did not disappoint. It’s more than just a die cut though. You could die cut the Florentine Thinlit and use it whole, in pieces, as a stencil and in any color you would like.

Break out those watercolor pencils because you just won’t believe how easy it is to create the beautiful background behind the Florentine Thinlit.

Because of the awesome color coordination in the Stampin’ Up! products, each element in the card matches. The color in the pencils, inks and papers are all the same. That makes creating a breeze.

I hope you can appreciate the dimension of the “friend” die cut sitting on that gorgeous Florentine Thinlit. I cut three images with the Well Written framelit, stacked them together, so that I would achieve a more substantial look. Can you believe it? In that bundle there are twenty-four dies and fifty-one stamps. WOW!!!
