I just used the same sandwich that I use for the sizzix framelits (magnetic platform, bottom plate, cardstock, We R die - cut side down for better positioning on the cardstock, then the top plate) . it worked well, tho' I had to watch my positioning and used washi tape to stick the die edges down sometimes because I was making A2 cards for OWH. the die just fits across the 5 1/2 inch side of the card. the only extra attention needed is when gluing a backing card under the chevron or dots. since the cuts go right to the edge of the cardstock, I had to be creative in gluing the edges so they didn't bend on the card - since OWH cards are put in and taken out of shipping boxes several times before the servicemen see them. however, I don't think it's a problem for regularly-mailed single cards. I mail 300 or so cards at a time! suggest you also use a heavier cardstock to guard against bending the edges. I tend to use the newer Bazzill heavier cardstock. enjoy the die - its fun to use and makes great cards!
