I have used Graphic 45 Mon Amour Love xoxo sheet.
Firstly find a die that is as close to the size of the sentiment as possible. then take your die, and a scrap piece of card and run through your machine.
Now take the die away and place the aperture over your sheet of sentiments, the aperture is the exact cut to place over the sentiment. ( I have used circular die/sentiment for this demonstration.) Tape the aperture over the sentiment and replace your die ready to cut. you may tape the die to stop any movement when passing through the machine, and now pass through the die cutting machine and voila...the perfect circular sentiment. No more trying to cut around and dusting the edges with ink to mask the unevenness lol. You can now matt that sentiment onto your scallop circle to finish your project or simply use alone.
Happy Crafting and Happy Christmas everybody...xxxxx
