Gather Your Supplies:

  • 1/2 Sheet Basic Black
  • 3 3/4 x 5 Whisper White, plus 4 x 5 1/4" for inside of card
  • 3 1/2 x 4 3/4" Lemon Lime Twist

The Big Shot Sandwich for you (from bottom up):

  • Platform
  • Thin Die Adaptor (or the old platform with all the tabs on the platform)
  • Piece of Chipboard
  • Silicone Craft Mat
  • Cardstock
  • Framelit
  • ONE cutting pad

It should turn quite loosely in your big shot–if not STOP–you don't want to accidentally cut through the craft mat!
