I have a branch with leaves that looks ragged unless I remove the bits of extra stuff, but it's difficult to do because the branch is fairly narrow and there are lots of curves.

I have a Cuttlebug, which I love, and this seems to happen no matter what brand of dies I use, or what weight of paper.

Any suggestions?
This is an old post but I thought I'd ut in my 2 cents...
At a QuicKutz seminar years ago they taught us to add a thin sheet of printer paper after the cs layer (die, cs, paper). The the thready bits are on th epaper and not on your cs piece!
