After viewing the video over and over again, tried many times with my BS, still couldn't get good results. Maybe I've done something incorrectly. I have no idea.
Yes, you are right that the logical choice is the GC because of the size. Do you have any idea if the GC also uses a magnetic sheet to keep the dies in place?
The Grand Calibur does not use the magnetic spacer plate that the Wizard used. I have a Wizard and a Grand Calibur and I notice no difference in cutting/embossing pressure. Both machines are equally powerful!! I love the size of the Grand Calibur. I had my hubby take out the white tray that came in my Grand Calibur and 8 1/2 x 11" sheet of cardstock fits perfectly without trimming.
