    And I think you need to stop following misery’s lead
    Shine away shine away shine away
    Isn’t it time you got over how fragile you are
    We’re all waiting
    Waiting on your supernova
    Cause that’s who you are
    And you’ve only begun to shine

Great card. Thank you so much for the instructions for making the card. I think the idea of a second scalloped piece is a great idea.


Dear Marie in BC,
I *do* get those phantom marks when my cutting mat gets old and I actually have a new C plate on the way for this very reason. I usually do not care if I am putting the die cut onto a base, but like here when the die cut IS the base, the back will show cut marks from the plate.

You can prevent this by adding scrap or copy paper between the marked up plate and the paper you are cutting.



Hi Robb_eeie!
I did buy the tan mat but to be honest I rarely use it, and that is only when I run the die cut through *again* to get those emboss marks really deep.

You can die cut just fine with the sandwich formula I wrote above :)


Very good point about making sure it is even on both sides.


thank you SOO much for making this Tut...I did ask and I am so greatful you demonstrated this technique!!!

Thanks for the photos on how to do this! I've seen it done before but the tip of lining it up so that you get symetry is a great idea!

I have to ask you if you ever get "phantom" emboss marks on your cut piece from your cutting mat?

I get it a lot lately with my new cutting plate when I cut single single layers but when I turn the paper over it's not too bad.

Since you're cutting these circle cards top-side (that is good side out) I was wondering if yours get marked up at all.


Hi Suzy -----> Sending you a Great Big Huge

for sharing your Cuttlebug "sandwhich" when using Nestabilities! Thank you SO very much.

I always thought you had to use a "tan mat" that is sold seperately, when using Nestabilities/Spellbinders, on other die cut machines (Cuttlebug, Sizzix, etc.)? Do you actually need one or ever use one?

Thanks Suzy and Happy Mother's Day.


Cool. Thanks for the tutorial. That really helps.
xoxo, Christine
