Stampendous dies are different! Instead of the cutting line being in the centre of the metal like most dies, on Stampendous dies the cutting line is right on the inside edge. This makes lining them up a little different but what you see through the die is what you get when you cut. Itís best to tape them to the paper (or thin metal or fabric or whatever you are cutting) to make sure they donít slip out of alignment. Alternatively, use a magnetic platform when cutting them.
