I bought this die....from Ali.....and didn't look close enough!!

When cut, it is only about 4.5" high, because there is a cut line, top and bottom.

I could get away with the bottom one by placing my top cutting plate on my die cutting machine just below the cut line, therefore not cutting it.
But no way could I do that to the top line as it is fractions away from the top of rose. So I asked Tony if he could help me.
He's going to grind away the top cutting line, and the bottom, if it works!!
Then I'll be able to use it on a larger piece of card, and ultimately on a larger card!!
I'll let you know how we get on........

He's done both ends for me. The photo shows up two indentations, which doesn't show up by looking at it with the naked eye.
The piece of card I used was an off cut which was 8" long......so sorted.........Thank you Tony.

Nice one Val, do you hire him out ?   

I did a similar thing with an original large red thick Sizzix die.  It was a shaped tag label with a hole in the top.  I didn't want the hole so I dismantled the foam from the blades and took the hole blade out, and voila, a die without the hole.  Had more use out of it this way.
