Now I really should be doing things in preparation for Christmas, but instead I'm going to show you some pics of how this machine works!! :)
Grand Calibur has to have the ridges of the die facing up, so to make sure my Large Circle Nestabilities die doesn't move, I've taped it with some Scotch Removable Magic Tape where I want it to stay. I have a roll of this permanently on my desk! The Poppies are from JustRite Stamper's Plant a Little Love stamp set.

Grand Calibur and wind the handle! Yep, this one is a winder, not a crank action like the Wizard, and it is SOOOOOOO smooth!!!

* Die with paper still inside
* Tan Embossing Mat (comes with the Grand Calibur)
* Pink B Plate
Make sure your sandwich is flat and put it through the Grand Calibur!! Remember I said it was a winder and how smooth it was?? Here is my 3yr old winding the embossing sandwich through - she loves helping! ;-)
Look at the beautiful embossing result the Grand Calibur gives....
To give a comparison between machines, I cut and embossed two of the Heirloom Ornaments dies (same size, both using Very Vanilla Cardstock) and here is the result....
If you've stayed with me this long - thanks for indulging me today with my new
FTC - Grand Calibur graciously provided by Spellbinders for me to play with!! :)
