PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION - DOUBLE IN OUT CUT PIERCED STAR DIE SET - Gina Marie Designs
PLEASE READ -
This is not a die for beginners. All machines are calibrated different, papers and plate life can effect the cuts you get. I had some people say they could not get a good cut on these and EVERY SINGLE one returned works perfectly. You need to follow the tips below if you have difficulties. YOU NEED TO BE WILLING TO POSSIBLY RUN THIS DIE THROUGH YOUR MACHINE A FEW TIMES TO GET EVERY PIERCE HOLE TO CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH.
On my machine all I had to do for a perfect cut is back and forth twice. I did not need a shim! But each machine is different.
This die cuts best FACE UP and at an ANGLE. Make sure the bottom plate it sits on is brand new and perfectly flat. It has lots of small piercing dots that are close together and every machine cuts differently. The style paper we use as well as the condition of our plates also result in the cuts we get. So if the piercings are not as deep as you want use a paper shim. I also found on one of my machines if I ran it through and then removed the outer layered and just kept the inner piece or vis versa I got a deeper cut without even shimming!
