I curled the lists and added a dimensional under it to hold it up...

And then to a major colour change - and a whole lot of work :-)  I just had to try this out!

Arhhh yes, but I cheated too!  I took the piece I didn't want out of the die and then ran the tape runner over the back of the die, on the remaining pieces.  This held the pieces I wanted to stay in the die, then I turned it and placed it on the base card.  The piece are not as puffy as  they would be, if I took them out and replaced them individually, but this was a whole lot easier and less time consuming.
