I just ordered the Cheery Lynn Large Stackers Nesting dies Large classic and I'm wondering if I need the metal adapter plate to make this die work in my cuttlebug. My plan was to make shaped cards with this die so I will most likely be running two sheets of card stock through the bug at the same time.
I know they suggest the adapter plate for the detailed Cheery Lynn dies but wasn't sure if it was needed or not for the large dies.

I guess I'll answer my own question and I will let you know as I just got the metal plate. Have to wait till after the weekend to try it out though.

Yes, you have to, and even with the metal plate, sometimes, it doesn't cut throughout, so i sometimes use a piece of cardstock as a shim as well!

I'm not sure if you NEED the plate, but it sure makes cutting those intricate dies easier to cut. I watched a demo at the scrapbook expo. The lady cut an intricate die with and without the plate and what a difference. I was sold. I use it for all my wafer thin dies and I haven't had to use any other kind of shim.
Definitely a good investment.

I'm such a fan of the Cheery Lynn dies - I have had mixed success without the metal plate but it looks like i'll have to buy that in my next order...

I know I might need it when I bite the bullet and get some of the intricate doily dies but I don't have a problem in my Big Shot with my regular Cheery Lynn Designs dies. They cut wonderful when I just cut them the same way I do my QK compatible dies.

The intricate doily dies I've tried have not cut well with my Cuttlebug. I am very disappointed in them. Are you telling me I need some kind of metal plate?
