Helpful Hints:
Shims may be needed to make a complete cut or a more crisp embossing--start thin and add gradually. Sizzix Premium Crease Pad is helpful when score lines of a die are being cut through instead of being scored--use in place of the clear plate that the die will cut against. Two clear cutting plates of some type are always used unless embossing texture plates, metal stencils or Spellbinders dies--if embossing, Sizzix impressions pad takes the place of one clear cutting plate. Plumber’s gasket has been used by some in place of silicone rubber for embossing. Can use Spellbinders silicone as well. Clear cutting plate and shims can be used in place of the Sizzix Impressions pad when embossing. Recommended “stacks” are pictured on the various tabs of the multipurpose platform--great visual reference. Never force a stack through the machine. This is the BIG take home point--it’s not worth breaking a plate or a machine!
