Christmas Ornament - Turtle Doves
In order to cut the birds from "flocked" paper, I found it was best to use a mat that I have used a few times, so it is not "super sticky", then I turn the velvet side DOWN on it. I use a new blade (regular type) and set the pressure to MAX and turn the blade holder all the way to "6" (highest # setting). Then I usually have no problems with cutting the velvet paper. I use this setting for lightweight chipboard too (like the kind from a cereal box) , although I have found you need the DEEP CUT blade & housing for the thicker Grunge board or cardboard items.
