Comments about Spellbinders Spellbinders Wizard Grand Borderabilities: Illumination:

Spellbinders made a great mistake with the Borderabilities are too long for 12" paper. You need 13" paper. One end of the design gets chopped off short, even when I TAPE the paper to the die. The tan poly embossing pad is only 12" long and you need a 13" long piece. Illumination cannot be cut in half or thirds to use as a full-length border on cards because you have to cut between the repeated scrolls. Beautiful design, but too much trouble. Borderabilities are disappointing because they are too long for the paper and pad. I love other Spellbinder dies.

Comments about Spellbinders Spellbinders Wizard Grand Borderabilities: Illumination:

I LOVE most Spellbinder dies, but these Grand Borderabilities are a mistake. Most scrapbooking paper is 11 7/8" square or 12" square. These dies are 12 1/4" long. It is impossible to cover the entire die with your paper. [You need paper that is 12 1/4" long.] If you don't use 12 1/4" (or longer) paper, one end of your die cut is cut off short—part of the design is missing. This die design is a tad shorter. If you position your paper and tape it to the cutting mat, you can get a full cut. I needed 2 chipboard plus 2 CS shims to get this die to cut thru thin CA (SU! Whisper White). The tan poly embossing pad isn't long enough to emboss the full die, either. You have to emboss one end, take the sandwich apart, move the pad, put it back together and emboss the other end. The design is very pretty, but it's linear: fat at one end, narrow tip at the other. This can make your card or page look heavier on one side. Yhis die woul be better if half of the design went one direction and the other end was a mirror: Fat at the middle, tapering out to narrow at EACH end.
