I am trying to use my Cottage Cutz moose and tree die for the first time. I have added ejection foam on back as directed and ran it through machine without paper. Now I have run a couple weights of cardstock through my cuttlebug with the die and many parts of the paper are not breaking loose for the die cut...yucko I am cutting between the moose legs. This is signicant cutting not just little connection points. Any suggestions on how to get the trees and moose to pop out of the cardstock?
Thanks for your ideas!

It's so frustrating when you get that close and it just doesn't quite cut! Ugh.

Jan, try adding a layer or two of scrap paper to give just alittle bit more pressure when passing thru the cutter. Sounds like it's close to cutting, maybe this will help. Good luck. HTH

I'm so glad it was just that simple.
