I recently bought one of the Marianne butterfly dies and I must say I was surprised at the size because it is larger than I imagined and I also had a struggle to actually remove the cut shape from the die and it was a real fiddle to remove all the 'waste' bits using a pokey tool. I do like the finished butterfly though so probably worth the hassle. Background paper is from my bits box, large die cut shape is a Sizzix die cut out and then embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots; flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts were tinted with matching Copic pen. Finished off with some ribbon, a computer greeting and Cuttlebug corners. I later tried running the die through with some waxed paper and the next butterfly was a bit easier to remove so maybe that is the solution.
