Hey all! I got a question on my YouTube page and thought I would post it here in case anyone else had the same question.
"What settings do you use on Stampin' Up cardstock on Cricut? The fishing poles are delicate. I have a problem with Cricut tearing on fine cuts."

I always use a pressure setting of 5. The blade housing is set to 6. If it is going to be an intricate cut I always slow my speed down, for this cut I set speed to 3. That generally works for me. If I take all of those steps and it still tears, I make my cut bigger.

The other part that is really important is making sure you have a sharp enough blade. There is no set timeframe in my mind to change it. You have to judge based on what you cut, how often/much you cut and what the machine is showing you with your output.

If anyone has any questions or requests, please don't hesitate to ask.

Have a great Father's Day :)
