This die is amazingly easy to use. It cuts through multiply layers with ease. I am used to fighting with my other die cutting and embossing machine with which I have a love-hate relationship.....because it is very good when it is good, but when the handle gets stuck the wrong way; I hate it. With this thick die I just use it in the Big Shot with total ease while sitting. No problems with rollers which will not move. directions for the non-sandwich is in the label.
