    I’ve a new Spellbinders 3-D embossing folder and a Big Shot machine and also a Spellbinders Grand Caliber. I can’t find any info about using this 3-D folder in these machines. Can anyone out there tell me how to do it? I’ve checked the compatibility info on this site already but still am not sure how to do it without breaking the folder or hurting the machine. Thanks SO much!

      Hi Kathleen,
      My name is Debi Adams and I work in the Art Room at Spellbinders. To use the 3-D folder with the Grand Caliber you will need the gray base plate and the raspberry plate. The 3-D folder will be sandwiched between the two. To use the Big Shot machine, you will need their platform and our 3-D embossing plate with the 3-D folder sandwiched between the two as well. Hope that helps.
