I have a Sizzix Big Shot and have a few problems with some of the light weight, intricate dies that I buy. Just recently I bought a Creative Expressions die and couldn't get it to cut at all so I added a piece of card on top of the plastic plates and it worked beautifully. But I was wondering if I could buy something for me to add to the shim rather than just an odd piece of card.

Any ideas please? Would the Sizzix Solo be too thick? I have to do all my shopping online.
