The Sizzix Solo Shim is designed to ensure crafters get the perfect cut every time when they use thin materials in the BIGkick, Big Shot, Big Shot Express, Big Shot Pro or Vagabond die-cutting machines. This replacement Shim will make sure your dies cut through your materials perfectly and emboss cleanly. It is made of Mylar plastic and is a tan and brown color. It measures 6 1/4" x 13", so it will work with long dies. The Solo Shim must be used with the Solo Platform and a set of Cutting Pads. It will work with all thinner Sizzix dies and embossing folders, including Clearlits, Embosslits, Ink-its, Sizzlits, Sizzlits Decorative Strips, Simple Impressions, Texture Fades, Texture Trades, Textured Impressions and Texturz Texture Plates. It can also be used with the Wafer-Thin Die Adapter (sold separately) to use when cutting with wafer-thin dies. For added convenience, there is a diagram printed on this Shim to ensure you get the perfect sandwich.
