Feathers are in! I do smile when I read trend reports/articles,
I'm not sure feathers have ever been out!
But it has allowed me to share this card with you today that features
two lots of feathers, the smaller blue ones are Feathers On The Wind
and the larger ones, cut from foil sheets are Birds Of A Feather -
cut using the Platinum and the new Contour steel rule dies.
And hopefully this brings me neatly onto chatting about the Platinum machine
and to answer some further questions that I've received
through my blog and email.
What plates comes with the Platinum machine?
You receive the junior sized plates with the machine,
these are slightly larger than A5 - two cutting plates, a tan mat and a embossing plate.
These junior plates work perfectly work the majority of wafer thin
Are there larger cutting plates available?
Yes, A4 cutting plates are available, known as XL plates -
they measure 8.5" x 12.25" and are here.
What about a larger tan mat and embossing plate?
These are currently in production and due to arrive, I will certainly keep
you posted with regard to this.
What is the magnetic platform?
This is used to keep dies in place, especially when you want to
align with patterns or phrases on cardstock.
It measures about 6.5" x 8.6"
This is available here.
I should mention the magnets are strong and could be harmful to pacemakers.
I'm using the magnetic platform a lot,
it really speeds things up and no need for removable tape.
That boy of mine has the Platinum machine, accessories and dies all
available on the website - he's been stocking up...
we're living on beans on toast! ;)
I hope that helps, please feel free to message me with any further questions.
Take care friends.
