The Altenew Dainty Flower Garden Press Plates are part of the BetterPress Collection and offer a beautiful way to add delicate floral arrangements and friendship-themed sentiments to your projects. These press plates feature two stunning floral arrangements and two sentiments that are perfect for creating heartfelt designs.
The floral arrangements in this set are intricately designed, with folds and details that translate beautifully to letterpress techniques. They can be used as focal points or combined with other elements to create layered designs. The sentiments included are friendship-themed, adding a meaningful touch to your projects.
To use the press plates, you will need a Spellbinder's Betterpress machine, which is compatible with these plates. Here are the steps to achieve professional results:
Place the BetterPress Press Plate onto the Chase: The Chase is the magnetic platform that holds the press plate in place during the printing process.
Tape the Card Panel on the Platen: The Platen is the clear top plate that has registration marks to help you align your card panel correctly. Tape your card panel securely to the Platen to ensure it stays in place during printing.
Apply Ink onto Press Plate: Use Altenew's signature inks or any other ink of your choice to apply color to the press plate. Ensure that the entire design is covered with ink, so you achieve a crisp letterpress effect.
Make a Letterpress Sandwich and run through the manual die-cutting machine: Once the press plate is inked, carefully place the Platen with the card panel on top of the press plate. Create a sandwich by adding appropriate shims or plates as recommended by your manual die-cutting machine's instructions. Run the sandwich through the machine, applying pressure to transfer the inked design onto your card panel.
By following these four simple steps, you can achieve professional-looking letterpress designs using the Altenew Dainty Flower Garden Press Plates and Spellbinder's Betterpress machine.
The dimensions of the press plates are as follows: Flower Arrangement 1 - 2.5 x 3.9 inches, Flower Arrangement 2 - 3.3 x 4.0 inches, Sentiment 1 - 0.5 x 2.1 inches, Sentiment 2 - 0.4 x 1.8 inches. These dimensions provide you with a reference for the size of the designs and sentiments.
Discover the creative possibilities with the Altenew Dainty Flower Garden Press Plates and bring a touch of elegance to your projects with intricate floral arrangements and heartfelt sentiments. Enjoy the art of letterpress and create stunning designs that will impress and delight.
