I gave it only 4 stars because I didn't know it was to cut as well as emboss. When I put it on my die cutter, it cut the outside part of the frame and embossed the inside. I will use a shim from now on if I want to emboss only.
I used my Spellbinders platinum using several different shim options, in several different sandwiches and different types of cardstock, but could not get a clean cut on all the frames. I didn’t try on my Anna Griffin Empress but may have better results. Great idea, and usually have great results with Altenew products just not this one.
Thanks for posting in your feedback. We're sorry to hear you're having troubles getting a clean cut out of the die set. We'll be happy to look into this.
Can you please send us a photo of the cut impression? Also, please let us know the weight of the card stock used and the type and weight of the shims you used.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Not only can you cut with this die, you can emboss with it!
I bought these after watching a YouTube video of a crafter using them. I should have also watched Altenew’s because it showed where you need a shim. It works really nice.
I love that you can make a bunch of frames at once and use as many as you want at a time - or just one for a very finished look to your card! I will have a stack of these ready to use at all times!!!!
