    I liked the way you used the partial die-cutting on this card. Using the Versa Mark as just a watermark was a nice touch. I know that can be done, I just forget to use it that way. Always good to be reminded. Thanks!

      Hi! Those little plates work with the Sizzix Big Shot. Not sure if there are smaller plates for other machines.
