Making Valentines

This card includes a couple of firsts for me. My first Memory Box die and my first Saturated Canary Digi Stamp! I received my very first Memory Box dies last week. I ordered the Cherish Border and the LaRue Heart die. I love the Memory Box dies because the images are so delicate. The LaRue Heart die cut so easily and all the little peices popped right out with my fingers, no tool required. I was so excited. When I got to the Cherish Border, my results were a little less than successful. I tried it with shims, wax paper, multiple different weights of cardstock and could not get the center of the border to cut all the way through. I finally tried it with Post It Adhesive Craft Paper and had good results. After doing a little research I finally figured out, that it was not the die that had an issue or my BigShot, it was me. Duh, you need to place the die on top with the cutting surface face down when you run it through the BigShot. I had mine face up. Total user error!!! Lol, chalk that up to a learning experience.
