Poor darling! Here’s what I found when I packed up after camp last week: this severely warped Sweet Buttons Embosslit Die. How it happened, I don’t know, but why — well, I can guess that someone didn’t STOP when the Big Shot was too difficult to crank. That’s a huge warning. Here’s some advice so your Embosslit doesn’t suffer the same crippling fate:
- If the Big Shot is too difficult to crank, STOP. Something is wrong.
- Embosslits go through the Big Shot sandwiched between two Standard Cutting Pads on Tab 1 of the Multipurpose Platform. (Don’t forget that each Tab shows how to create the proper sandwich for different dies.)
- There’s a right and wrong side to an Embosslit. The wrong side is labeled, “Place this side down.” I mark the other side with arrows.
- Embosslits should be fed through the Big Shot sideways, that is, with the hinge on the side.
- Use only card stock and paper in the Embosslit, and only one sheet at a time.
This little sweetie didn’t have to die so young!
