Default What's the difference?

Between the MFT Fishtail Flags dies and the Fishtail Flags STAX dies? I'm trying to decide between the two. Thank you!!

Also, I've never used these dies before with my Big Shot, do I need to get anything like a special plate to go with them?

Hi Bridgette.
I'm sure Kim or Jody will be along shortly to give you better information, but in the meantime...

If you are talking about the Fishtail Flags STAX and the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX. The shape is the same, but the layers STAX provide a really nice mat for the original Fishtail Flags STAX. The Fishtail Flag Banner STAX are a nice chunky banner shape.

I use the same set up I would use for any of the thin metal dies like Spellbinders or PTI.

Thank you! I'm wondering if I need both of them so I can mat one on top of the other... This is the card I would like to re-create...

Cute card!

I think that amount of reveal looks like she used both Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers to mat like that.

Hi Bridgette. The Fishtail Flags STAX and Fishtail Flag Layers STAX work together to "mat" each other so you can have the layered look you are looking for.
