I was reminded about this post from last December when a stamper recently called me, a bit frustrated that she couldn’t easily get the Festive Flurry Framelits to line up with the matching stamped image. I gave her the following advice, valid whether you’re punching or die cutting!
When you start to line up the image in the punch or Framelits, don’t line up each tip — by the time you move around the image, the first one will be off. Instead, only look at two tips: the one at the bottom and the one directly opposite it (yes, at the top). If those two are lined up, the rest will fall into place. Seriously, this works!
