Question Need Help With Die-Cutting Issue

Hi Everyone -


After a very long hiatus from card-making, so long that I have forgotten some of the things I used to know, I got out my Cuttlebug and tried to do some die-cutting with Lawn Fawn dies.

The issue is that the edge of the die is getting embossed into the cut-out and I can't remember what to do to prevent that from happening.

The sandwich I used was A Plate, C Plate, die facing up, cardstock, B Plate. Using two B Plates instead of the C Plate is not thick enough.

Any suggestions???

I don't own a Cuttlebug so I can't help you, but I'm sure someone will be along soon with advice.

Just wanted to say welcome back! I also took a hiatus (about 5 years) and started back up this year.

Thank you, whoistracy, that's very kind of you! It feels good to be getting back into the game, albeit slowly and a bit rusty

Welcome back yourself - I look forward to seeing your cards and any other projects!

Once a stamper, always a stamper!!!

Update...

I went to my local stamp store today and told them about my dilemma. I was told it's a common occurrence with today's dies and that any embossed lines can be flattened/smoothed out by running the cut-out through the machine a second time with an embossing mat - I think you leave the B plate out of the sandwich. Apparently, there is a video on YouTube that demonstrates how to do it, but I haven't been able to find it yet.

Does anyone know of this video???

Welcome back - and here are a couple of threads about the issue. I only quickly scanned them, but some hints may be helpful. Sandwich changing like Shaz mentioned in the first thread may be a way to go:

I read here one time to flip my sandwich over so you are cutting down instead of up to help eliminate those unwanted lines dies sometimes leave. It definitely helped, something to with the roller pressure.

That's how I always cut but still get the marks. SU Swirly dies ( don't recall the right name) leaves dots from the release holes-so annoying

Try searching Jennifer McGuire videos for help about removing/avoiding lines. My memory is telling me I saw her do one on the issue. Just had a quick look through, and can't spot one that deals with it directly, so I'm guessing it's in a video she's done using die cuts. I do think it was something like using the rubber mat though.

Just as an FYI, this thread will probably be of interest:
