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.
So, is the thin die adapter a necessity if you're using framelets with the magnetic platform, or do you think a second self-healing mat (which I already own) would work just as well? Just trying not to purchase the adapter unless I have to! Thanks!
