Hey Stampers! Do you ever get frustrated when using your Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine? Maybe you’ve got a great project to make but you’re not sure how to make your “sandwich” to get all the plates and platforms to perform correctly? Well, you’re in the right place today! I’ve got a simple die-cut project to share AND a PDF to give you some tips for making your “sandwich” easier!
This card uses Abstract Impressions Designer Series Paper as the focal point, and a few Basic Pearl Jewels for some “pop”. When using an intricate die like this one, you’ll want to use a Precision Cutting Plate and have a Big Shot Die Brush standing by to help you remove any stubborn little pieces that didn’t fall out. If you don’t yet own the die brush, here’s a little “secret” I use time and time again and I KNOW you have one of these in your home.
Yep, a plain old dryer sheet. If you’ll rub a brand new sheet on the back of your thinlit or framelit die BEFORE running your paper through the Big Shot, the pieces will just fall out beautifully…try it!
Here’s the “sandwich” tip sheet. Print it out and keep with your Big Shot for easy reference.
Here’s the project sheet for my card today. Some of my customers print out the PDF instructions and put into a binder so they’ll have inspiration right at their fingertips!
