Thin die Adapter
Magnetic platform
Self healing mat
Card stock
Die - cutting side down
Clear acrylic plate

Think I will like this magnetic platform. The magnetic 'pull' is strong even through the self healing mat. I like to fussy cut. Also, the die needs to be cutting side down if you are using a coordinating die with your stamped image.
Thank you so much for posting your sandwich stack. I just got my thin die adapter today and this works awesome!! I just cut one of the Radiant Recantles Spellbinders dies that would NOT cut with the metal plate and wax paper. This sandwich cut it all the way through in one pass. Hardly any pieces to punch out from the die-cut, too. It works perfectly!
