How to die cut the Plush Poinsettia Paper
The Plush paper comes in a pack of 6 sheets of 12 x 12, 6 sheets: 2 each of 3 designs (poinsettia, leaves, background print). The poinsettia and the leaves match with the dies so it makes it simple to die cut. My best advice to run in through the die-cut machine is to cut around the leaves and poinsettia then you can fit in the machine. All is shown in the video.
- Whisper White 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ card base
- Shimmery White or Merry Merlot 5¼ x 4, embossed with the brick & mortar folder.
- Shimmery White banner 4 x ¾
- Plus Poinsettia flowers, berries, and leaves die cut with matching dies
How to add color and shimmer
I try a few different ways to add color to the plush paper and the best result is to sponge ink on top of the plush. I try markers, blends but that makes it tuff on the tip of the pens. I say sponging is the easiest way.
To add the shimmering sparkle I filed about ¾ fill a spritz bottle with 70% rubbing alcohol and added 5 drops of frosted white with shimmer paint. Shake well and spritz your plus paper. Yes, that simple.
Inside I stamped the poinsettia with Merry Merlot ink and some I added a greeting that I stamped with Mossy Meadow Ink.
