It does work fine, and if you need one, but don't have much to spend, it is less expensive than many others. However, if you can spend more on another type, I would. The lip or ledge is small, so it can be a bit tricky to keep the card stock in the corner and there are no magnets to help keep it from moving. It does seem fairly sturdy, and isn't a bad tool for the price. If you want to find out if using one of these tools fits with your style of stamping, this is an inexpensive way to do that. For myself, I will be upgrading to a better one as soon as I can.
