Birds and bird cages are popular icons in the paper crafting world. When I saw this Tim Holtz die I had to have it; I knew immediately what my first choice of paper would be to use with it. I was pleased how easily the die cut through chipboard, although I recommend two passes through the Big Shot to ensure a completely clean cut. I can appreciate the versatility of this die and look forward to making many cards of different themes with it.
