Have just taken delivery of a die from China similar to Marianne's  Anja Elegant border die.
When looking at cards using the die it creates border...still attached to card...but my die cuts out all round...am I using it wrong?

....is there some tutorial on using this die anywhere?

If you google the Anja die it says that it only cuts on one side so I am guessing that your version is different if it cuts all of the way round. Fairly sure that you are not going to get it to be an edger.

This is sometimes the problems with the Chinese dies. I don't think they are supposed to copy them, so they make them just a bit different. If you look at the photo of the Chinese die, you'll probably see there is a cutting edge all around it. I was looking at some edgers the other day and they had a cutting edge all round, and that defeats the object.
It pays to look closely.

I found this one on Amazon, looking closely it doesn't cut all round. Cut and paste it into Amazon.

This one looks to be ok. Are you sure you are are not cutting it upside down. I know you know what you are doing, but just make sure the cutting edge, is on the side that needs to be cut
