Tips for cutting CTMH White Daisy and Colonial White cardstock with your Cricut® machine:
- use a sharp blade and have a spare blade on hand to try if none of the suggestions listed below help
- do not use a brand new Cricut® Standard Grip mat (green) mat to cut White Daisy or Colonial White cardstock as both White Daisy and Colonial White stick to a mat quite well
- never use a Cricut® Strong Grip mat (grey) with White Daisy or Colonial White cardstock unless it is extremely well worn
- many have had a good experience using the Cricut® Light Grip mat (blue) to cut White Daisy and Colonial White cardstock
- do not let the cardstock sit on the mat for an extended period of time; as soon as your cutting (and stamping if using a Cricut® coordinating stamp) are complete, remove the paper from the cutting mat and use the Cricut® Spatula to help remove the die cuts; leaving any material sitting on the mat will result in a stuck on mess and shorten the life of the cutting mat
- when using the Expression or Expression 2 set the pressure at 4 on your blade housing and at High (rather than Max) on your machine; use the multi-cut option to cut the image 2 times; also slow down your cutting speed
- when using the Explore set the dial to cardstock
- simplify your design using Cricut® Craft Room or Cricut® Design Space if possible; in other words remove some of the elements of a design, for example, the holes along the edge of a decorative scallop
