As with many intricate dies, it was "not cut once and its done". I had to reposition the die and cut it several times to get all the little squares to release cleanly. It works very nicely with the companion die that has a more open design and I expect to use it many times. By varying the colors I can create Christmas, Easter, Birthday, Valentine, baby, masculine cards and I'm sure that there are other holidays and events to which this die will lend itself.
Well, it says "A7" right in the title, so I have no excuse for being surprised this was a 5x7" cutting plate, and not an A2. I cut the finished die cut down to make a 5x5" card. Cut cleanly and easily on Bazzil Basics cardstock.
I love this seriously designed plate as it can be used for so many backgrounds and interest points on a card.
Such great results
I really like the die, but it has two problem areas that don't cut very clean, even with a metal plate or a shim. I tried using several different weights of paper also. Kind of disappointing but I can live with the problem. Like the end result with using the base and top plates.
