This delicate Flower Vine image will look great on any project. Ink-its Letterpress Plates from Sizzix will create an elegant, unique design in an instant. Letterpress Plates are easy to use and stylish. Leave an ink-debossed impression on your project quickly and easily. Each Letterpress Plate measures 3" x 8" and is 1/8" thick. It's the ideal size to create a border on an A7-sized card. This design will measure 4" x 1 5/8" when complete. To use, cover the Plate with ink from any ink pad, and then place your paper on top. It's recommended that watercolor paper be used. Paper should be at least a medium weight or heavier (100 lbs or more) to achieve the optimum effect. Then, run the plate through a BIGkick, Big Shot or Vagabond machine with a set of Cutting Pads and the machine's Platform (all items sold separately). For more options, craft metal can also be used with the Letterpress Plates. Creative note: shiny or non-porous materials should not be used with this product, as the ink will not dry. If you are using regular cardstock and are not achieving the results you want, insert a narrow piece of craft foam into your sandwich, between the top Cutting Pad and the paper. To clean: use water and a paper towel to rub off the majority of the ink. Sizzix suggests using a stamp cleaner to clean the plates for troublesome spots.
