GoPress And Foil Technique 26 Using Thin Metal Dies As Hot Foil Stamps

October 28, 2018 — 8 Comments

Got a rather swanky technique for you GoPress owners. Now you can use your nesting dies as hot foil stamps to add foiling to their edges!

Come take a look!

GoPress And Foil - Technique 26 - Using Thin Metal Cutting Dies as Hot Foil Stamps with the GoPress & Foil

In fact, you can use any thin metal cutting die for this technique so you can start adding foiled detail to all of those plain old die cuts!

The best type are nesting dies though as they often form the mat/layers on our cards and this way, you can create a mat/layer with just one piece of card.

Other dies may have release holes which will show on the foiling but the only way to see what it will look like is to give it a go!

In order to do that, you will of course need to know how … so here is the method – enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have fun trying this one out too.

Bye for now.

    Wow who would of thought. Thankyou John for this video it’s appreciated by many I’m sure. Could this be done anyway with out using the hot foil process? I don’t have the hot foil machine and don’t really want to fork out on something I might only use a few times a year! Would love to know what you think.

    Hi John
    Fabulous tip. Am I right in thinking that if this technique were employed accurately, you would also benefit from a thin frame of foiling around the resulting aperture?
