Default Sizzlits Large Paper Doily Die

Help please! Every time I use this die cut I wind up having to punch out, cut out or tear out the holes. I've tried shimming top and bottom, thought I was going to break my Big Shot, and still I can't get the holes to empty out. What I am doing wrong?

Try placing a piece of waxpaper next to the foam part of the die, between the die and the card stock. This sometimes helps.

DO NOT like this die because I always have to 'fuss' with it to get a good cut image. Used this die to make card exchange for a Club meeting but it wore me out.

Not buying anymore doilies Sizzlet dies-too much work! I know someone will chime in and say they never have a problem but I do. Asked my SU demo if the if the newer smaller duo ones work better and she just shook her head 'No'.

I will try the wax paper next time. I won't buy any more dies of this kind. Pretty but just not worth all the work.
