Ok, I agree that making a Big Shot sandwich might not be quite as tasty and exciting as making a BLT (bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwich) but having a quick and easy guide will make it so much easier.
I know that I frequently make the mistake of not swapping out my regular Big Shot Platform and my Magnetic Platform. I use my Framelits and Thinlits so often than when I go to use a TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) I forget to change those platforms. I know immediately, when running the platform under the crank area, that I’ve got the wrong platform since there’s absolutely no resistance. Or there’s too much resistance.
So here’s a quick, handy, and printable guide for you to keep near your Big Shot:
An additional tip would be to put this new Big Shot Embossing Mat on your next order because it will make getting a good image from the newer framelit dies that are for embossing rather than cutting much easier. An example would be the Pretty Park Framelits Dies stone piece that coordinates with the Sitting Pretty stamp set. By the way, you can purchase the Sitting Pretty Stamp Set and the Pretty Park Framelits Dies as a bundle for 10% off!
I really couldn’t get the image definition I wanted until I got the embossing mat since it’s padded and offers some cushioning to bring out the details of the image. I’ll have a ‘show and tell’ blog post soon showing off the features of this mat.
You’ll definitely find that making a Big Shot sandwich will be much easier when you reference this PDF. Print it out and enjoy!
