Have you noticed all the intricate framelits we have now? Detailed butterflys, dragonflys and flowers are a beautiful addition to your creations but if they take a long time to cut it may feel like they are not worth using.
We now have the precision base plate and the difference it makes to cutting a framelit is incredible. The video explains how to use the plate in the Big Shot, remember to NOT use it with your magnetic platform. More detailed information on how to use your Big Shot can be found in my previous post here.
Here is an example of a butterfly cut using our standard platform in the big shot, it looks ok from the top but once you flip it over you can see that some of the cuts are not deep enough…
This is the view from the back, this butterfly is not going to be easy to get out!
This butterfly has been cut using the Precision Base Plate…
Nice shape deep cuts that can been seen from the back!
Give it a good brush with the fantastic Die Cut Brush, another Stampin’ Up! product!
Viola, this butterfly popped off the framelit with no hassles at all!
Looking up close at the framelit, can you see all those small round “holes” that don’t have anything to do with the butterfly design – these are there simply to help you to gently ease your cut image out of the framelit, you can pop your paper piercer into these holes to push the cut cardstock out. Easy!
