Join Ann-marie Vaux as she introduces die-cutting, using the Sizzix Big Shot
Check out Ann-marie’s accompanying video, full of expert advice, hints and tips!
Add any platforms you may need to your cutting machine, ie) adapter plates to add the height for thin dies
You will need both of the cutting plates
Add your chosen die to one of the plates, face up I often find is better, but it is personal preference.
Add card/paper over the die
Add the second cutting plate over the top of the card/paper layer to create a sandwich
Run the cutting sandwich through the die-cutting machine by turning the handle if it is a manual machine, or if electric, press the button
Remove the cutting sandwich from the machine and remove the plates
Gently press the die cut out of the card/paper and you have a finished die-cut
