Does anyone have a solution for cutting flocked or glittery paper with their Expression. It either does not cut all the way through, or it will not stay stuck to the mat (new)or the flocking is scraped on the cut edge - not a clean cut. Most of these are either Doodlebug and DCWV papers. Beautiful papers, expecially with Valentine or Easter cards to be made. Tried new mats, blades, slow speed, and all pressures. Would multi-cut help or perhaps using the blue heavy duty blade and housing? I would appreciate any help.Crying

Yes, try using the multi-cut--especially since you are using glitter/flocked paper.

I just experimented with DCWV glitter paper today. Here is what worked for me, I use the deep cut blade set at 6, tape the glitter paper glitter side down. I set the machine to multi cut (2). I found I did not need to multi cut when the glitter was face down. You have to flip the image though. I also tried cutting glitter side up and the results were not nearly as good, I had to trim excess paper from the cut. Hope this helps. Use an old mat as some glitter does stay on mat. Hope this helps.
