This Letterpress Plate showcases the fanciful style of Ellison die artist Rachael Bright. The plate measures 5 7/8 x 8 x 1/8, perfect for the cover of an A7 card. Simply ink the plate using an ink pad and place your material carefully on top of the plate. Ink-its Letterpress Plates are for use with the BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond machines only (used with a pair of Cutting Pads and the machine's included platform). View step-out instructions. Use pigment ink layered over clear watermark ink and medium weight (or heavier) watercolor paper - 100 lbs or more - for best results. Craft metal can also be impressed, but using shiny, non-porous materials with ink is not recommended because the ink will not dry. If using regular cardstock and not getting the impression you desire, place a thin piece of craft foam between the top Cutting Pad and your paper. Water and a paper towel will remove most inks. For tougher cases, we recommend stamp cleaner for cleaning your Ink-its Letterpress Plates.
