Thinlits have more details than Framelits which are a basic shape die cut.

This video is 3-1/2 minutes long.

Thinlits have several differences from Framelits.  Both have cut lines.  Some Thinlits also have score lines.  Most Thinlits have release holes on the flat metal to help you get the card stock out.  There are several types of Thinlits.

1.  Regular Thinlits have shape and some details, but are larger and the card stock comes out fairly easily.
Use Sandwich 1

2.  3D Thinlits both cut and score your card stock so you can fold and make a 3 dimensional container, shape, envelope, or bag.  You can use any of the basic Platform bases and 2 cutting pads/plates.
Use Sandwich 1.

3.  Word Thinlits cut out a single word with a thin line of card stock forming the cursive letters. Use any of the basic Platforms bases and 2 FLAT cutting pads/plates.  You can also use the Precision Base Plate with 1 cutting pad/plate. You might also need to use Parchment Paper or Wax Paper between your card stock and the Thinlit to help your card stock come out of the Thinlit die more easily.
Use either Sandwich 1 OR 2 with FLAT cutting pad(s)/plate(s).

4.  Interactive Thinlits which make an outside cut and an inside cut. PL Paper Clip Thinlits.
Use Sandwich 1.

5.  Detailed Thinlits cut fine lines with intricate designs and give the best results when used with the Precision Base Plate.
Use Sandwich 2.

This can be very confusing since both Thinlits and Framelits can be in the same set and the set is labeled as either Framelits or Thinlits.

Basically Framelits cut out a basic shape with no details.  Thinlits have more details and will be discussed on Wednesday.  Big Shot Sandwiches will come on Friday.

This Video is 2 minutes long

There are 3 types of Framelits.

Framelits have a flat metal frame with an open hole in the center which results in a solid die cut shape.  There are several types of Framelits.

    Use Sandwich 1.

    Use Sandwich 1.
  1. Interactive Framelits. New this year is the Sliding Star Framelits which make Slider cards.
    Use Sandwich 1.

2.  Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Get your embossing folder.  Find the smooth side where the parts to be embossed are lower than the flat part.  Use your Emerald Envy ink pad to ink up this side of your embossing folder.  Don’t worry about keeping the center oval clean as it will be covered up.  Put your Whisper White card stock on the UNINKED side of the embossing folder and get it in the position you want – with the Oval in the center.  Close your embossing folder and run through your Big Shot.  Set aside to dry.  Clean your embossing folder with running water from your sink.

5.  Now it is time to put everything together and turn it into a card.
~Use Tombow Glue to attach your embossed card stock to your card base.  Center it so the card base shows equally around your embossed piece.
~Add your cut out Oval over the Oval space on your embossed piece.  I used Tombow Glue.
~Decide the position of your “Hooray” and “Happy Birthday”.  Remove the Stampin’ Dimensional backs and attach.
6.  If you are like me and did not leave enough room on both sides of your Happy Birthday so it could be in the center when you cut it out, then you can punch out a few Stars from the Confetti Stars Punch and glue them to your Happy Birthday Banner.  😉
