The finished product is really great, however, getting to it was a very painful picking out of every "hanging chad." I ran the first one through my Vagabond twice, and then I checked the back to see if it had cut through. No. It didn't. So I added a piece of plastic packaging (my 'go-to' addition to help dies that do not cut well), and it cut nearly through all areas that time after running it through another 3 times with the added plastic shim. I gave up at that point and just fiddled with it, coaxing out small pieces that were still connected by small stubborn pieces. So when I was ready to run the second plaid die through, I changed one plate to the chrome detail cutting plate from Sizzix. I ran this plaid through 3 times, then added the plastic shim again and continued to run it through another 3 times. This time, all pieces were cut out, but still had to be pushed out with a pokey tool. So when I have time to fiddle with these dies again, I will use the detail cutting plate, and finish with the plastic shim addition, but I will add 2 dryer sheets to the die before I put the cardstock on it. That should help it release better from the die. And then it should cut better a few times before I have to do it again. I find a vast difference in manufacturers' dies these days. Some cut through with one pass. Most require a couple of passes, and the rest are devilishly reluctant to cut through. I miss steel rule dies for that very reason. At least most of them will cut 3 dies at a time in one pass. Maybe next time it will work better for me. I really love the way it looks, and my husband said it looked "complicated."
I have had my eye on this set for a while and bought it when cover dies were on sale. It did not disappoint. I will be making many cards with this set of cover dies.
These are so fun to play with and can be used for many occasions. Just change the colors up to match your project or theme.
I wanted these dies and ordered them the day they were back in stock!! Made beautiful Easter cars using pastel card stock!! Will be making graduation cards next with school colors to mail since most ceremonies are cancelled, it's a great way to send a gift card!! Love these!!!
Love this die! Makes for a very interesting background.
