I am rather embarrassed to ask this question but here it is. I recently bought
Christmas Tree die (large) #2 by Sizzix. The cut tree has small cut lines...sort of like garland. Why ? I've noticed this with the Cricut as well. For some reason the purpose of these lines escape me.
Thanks. I see. I want the tree to be all one color but I thought I could do one of two things. Cut along each cut line and very slightly layer to give dimension. (Basically cut the tree into 5 pieces and layer) Or...put a line of liquid glue and then glitter to look like garland. Any other ideas ?
I actually enjoyed the pun !
I like this tree but wonder if anyone has the Marianne Creatable (?)/Designable (?) tree. It's a die that cuts and says it embosses. It's about 6 inches tall. I like the look of raised (embossed) details more than those little score/cut lines that I feel forced to hide. You don't have to try to hide embossing.
The stocking die has the stocking shape and the cuff shape (and the toe and heel shapes). So the line is to show you exactly where the cuff shape (or toe or heel) is layered on top. There is no way I'm paying that much for a die if I have to do manual cutting with scissors as well.
eta: I do not have this die. Where exactly are the dotted lines?

You don't have to cut it, but if you wanted to add a bit more interest and dimension you could cut it out again in a different card then cut the toe and heel (following the dotted lines) and stick them on top of the first stocking.
