Tips & Tricks:

When you do your die-cutting make sure you have a small bowl around so that you can put the little pieces from the cut out in.  That way you don’t run the risk of losing them.  Twish-inside-the-lines-close-uphe magnetic Platform makes die-cutting so much more easy and you will want it to center the die without it moving.   This makes lining up the wish very easy.   When you are doing any type of die-cutting like this this tool is a must have, I could not live without it when doing these types of cards.   When I used my regular platform it never fells that it will move when I run it through the Big Shot.

To adhere the panel down you really want to use the Multipurpose glue because it gives you a little bit of wiggle room that you can get it perfectly in place.  And, even better is that  you can add enough glue around the cut out area without worry.

Make sure that you have a small bowl around when you do the die cut to place those small little pieces in place.  I can not stress this enough.  When you go to add these pieces in you will want to replace the cutout and glue the pieces in where they go.  By using the die cut out as a guide it makes replacing the small pieces very very easy.   This is a vital step and wonderful tip to make this process really easy.
