As soon as I got the pig home, I had to try it. Here’s a quick card that I made using a CuttleKid die. Layered on a green card, I used Brenda Walton design paper and a strip of Nana’s Kids backed on Pink Bazzill paper. Layered on a sentiment panel of green backed by pink and spelled out the sentiment with my clear CTMH Doodle Alpha.
Have you seen them in the stores? They are so cute and I haven’t found much information on them so I decided to buy some and try them. CuttleKids dies are sized the same as Cuttlebug dies – roughly 2 x 2. The housing for these dies differ from Cuttlebug dies; the casing is not quite as sturdy, but ultimately they work the same and produce virtually the same results. The die is made from sharp metal and then encased on one side with foam and on the other side with cardstock. I think they are a bargain hunters dream because they are priced so cheaply in light of their basic materials, and there are so many designs. Admittedly the designs are for kids but I find them quite whimsical. I purchased a set of alphabets, but the little animals will probably all be coming home with me.
