This is such a pretty card Gina. The wee bird is cute. Lovely for Spring.
Just thought I'd share a tip to avoid the cutting plates bowing/b>;
I always use the same "B" plate to cut on, but if you alternate the cutting side of your B plate, ie, when it starts to curl, do the next cut on concave side (if you're not sure what I'm talking about, think cut on the top side of a smile, or inside of a bracket) as you cut, the cut lines push the flat surface apart, correct it by cutting on other side, pushing opposite side apart so it evens the plate back to flat. I hope you can follow what I'm trying to say.
I use my Cuttlebug regularly and still have the same cutting plates I've had for nearly 2 years now and they are still perfectly flat, though I can't see through the one I use to cut on any more.
My friend, who gave me this tip, has been using hers for many years more and does the same, and hers too is still flat. She gave me this tip when my bug was new.

I'd like to second the comment someone posted earlier about reversing the layering of B and C plates. I only ever let my B plate see a blade!

On another tangent entirely, I love seeing you use the stamp-a-ma-jig and it really inspires me to haul mine out and put it to use. The thing stopping me, I think, has been the issue of cleaning the imaging sheet afterwards. Gina, how do you clean yours? Is there a quick and simple way?

I love this card, Gina!!!
Comment by Wendy on March 31, 2010 at 8:39am
A suggestion that I have seen before is to cut on the B plates, with the C on the top, so that the cut score lines are on the B and not the C. This is because it is so much more difficult to find C plate replacements and they are more expensive than the B plates. This is a helpful hint if you do a lot of cutting with nesties. Loved the gatefold card.. thanks for the tutorial.

I am so glad I discovered StampTV! Not only did I learn about the dots for gatefold cards on the Scorpal but I also learned how to use the Stampamajig that I have had for years and never figured out how to use! Thanks Gina!!!! I am off to the craft room to make my own gatefold card!
