The one that shouldn't doesn't cut all the holes, but then I have to put it through again to make it cut all the holes, because it looks kinda bad with only some holes cut out. I want some solid butterflies, but not much luck with the vellum. The cardstock works better, but some times, not so much. Do I have to change my sandwich for the vellum? I use, and have always used A plate, die, cut side up, paper, B plate, adding the black plumbers rubber sheet after the paper, for embossing with Spellbinders. It has always worked, until now. I would love any suggestions.
I don't think you are using the right sandwich. Here is a video that Spellbinders owner, Stacey Caron, made showing how to cut/emboss using the cuttlebug.

The sandwich she uses is A plate, C plate, die, cardstock, B plate - this will cut your die.

The sandwich to use when embossing is: A plate, die with cardstock inside, Tan Embossing Mat, 2 pieces of cardstock for shim, 2 B Plates. This will emboss the die cut!

Also, what weight of vellum are you using? I have found Vellum to be kinda tricky with the more intricate dies. I usually use a heavier weighted vellum. Let me know if you need more help!
