I purchased the deep cut blade and housing hoping to cut chipboard items for my Christmas cards. I also bought thin cut chipboad. I was disappointed that the blade did not cut all the way thru the chipboard, even set at 6 and I still had to scissor cut the elements by hand.
this is a nice extra to have on your cricut! I used it on plain chipboard to add a layer of thickness to letters I cut out on the cricut. It adds dimension and gives me the flexibility to either top them with paper, ink or paint.
If you are looking for something that will add flexibility and value to your cricut, give this a good look.
