STEP 1: place BOTH of the opaque plastic shim pieces from the Premium Crease pad package on top of the clear Standard Cutting Pad.
(thanks to my awesome son for the photos!)
STEP 2: Place the Scallop Envelope Bigz die – foam side up – on top of the white plastic shim pieces (being careful to get it exactly centered over the plastic pieces).
STEP 3: place your cardstock or DSP on the die.. I like to place the part you want as the “outside’ of the envleope FACE DOWN (notice in the finished sample, these squares will end up in the inside of the env.)
STEP 4: Place the Premium Crease Pad on top of the paper or cardstock.
This becomes your “sandwich”. (If you are hungry, I’d suggest Kinders or Quizno’s though) 🙂
STEP 5: Roll your “sandwich” through the Big Shot.
STEP 6: As you take the “sandwich” out of the Big Shot, and take the Crease Pad off, you’ll see the die has cut the envelope shape perfectly and made the 4 crease/score lines!
STEP 7: When you flip it over you’ll see how nicely those score marks show up!
Step 8: Fold up the envelope and add it to a card or gift and enjoy!
Whew.. hope that was helpful.. I sure needed it! 🙂
EDITED TO ADD 8-21-08: CLICK HERE for an instruction sheet on the crease pad. Although it shows the Big Kick, the layering process is the same for the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot.
