Default Cuttling Fabric with Cuttlebug

I have been following all the threads regarding the cuttlebug for use on felt & fabric. I am putting 2 layers of quilting fabric stuck together with vlisofix and the flowers are not cutting out cleanly. Turned plate B over, I have even tried putting it through twice. If I use lightweight cotton with vlisofix and felt by itself, no problems....any suggestions?

I use vlisofix when wanting to attach one fabric to another especially for appliquing

I use a fusible webbing between fabric layers also.I've never heard of the stuff you use.
Sometimes you will have to put a piece of paper (or two) under the plastic sheet. That adds just enough extra thickness to make it a bit tighter going through the roller.
I think some fabrics are just tougher than others.
It just takes practice. You want smooth clean cut outs. If there is even one thread that doesn't cut I toss it.
