  1. How simply gorgeous this is!

  2. Candy I love this, its clean simplicity shows off the beauty of this bundle. The ribbons add just the right touch, they’re the perfect accent.

  3. Your card is simply beautiful and I attempted to CASE, however I am having a problem with the square star die. It leaves the impression of the outer edges of the die so my stars like groups of little squares. Any tips you could share?

    • Hi, Pat! It sounds like you have a little too much pressure in your Big Shot sandwich. What I would recommend trying first is running the die cut piece of paper through the Big Shot again without a die. If you have new clear plates, run it through by itself between them. If you have older, marred plates (don’t we all?) do the same thing but put the die cut piece between two pieces of paper. That should press out any left over dents. Let me know if it helps or not.

      • Thanks so much for the swift reply, Candy. I tried both things you suggested and it did help. Still not perfect, but much better. I agree that the problem must be with the pressure in my Big Shot. I guess I’ll have to try using different plates and sandwiches until I come up with the right combo. Really appreciate your input and help!
