Cut Foil and Emboss Die Preview 2 – Cathedral Window

March 11, 2019 — 11 Comments

Ready for another scratch n sniff of what’s coming up soon?

Ok, scratch away…

FYI, if you don’t know what I am on about with these things, please do pop back and have a look at this blog post.

Ok, ready?

Here is the design that I would like to share with you today.

Cathedral Window Couture Creations John Bloodworth Cut Foil and Emboss Die Preview

It’s called the Cathedral Window and, as you can probably guess, was inspired by those amazing designs that one sees in Cathedral windows.

Again it is a cut foil and emboss die but remember, it can be used without foiling through a regular die cutting machine, either raw – without addition – or inked for a letterpressed look.

Now, I will be honest, when I first created this I was all like ‘will this be too fussy or busy?’ but after I had created the design and made up some test cuts I was more like, ‘Who cares? It’s gorgeous!’

Hope you agree.

It is definitely a statement piece with little extra needed. Obviously, I ignored that and loaded it up with flowers and sentiment in the serving suggestion below.

Those flowers also had some of texture tile designs added – a great way of adding detail to existing plain and boring die cuts! More on those in another post though.

So, what do you think?

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.


Now, just to let you know, at the time of writing these posts I did not yet have the physical products and so the images used in this blog post are either digital mock-ups or physical mock-ups made using card cut and detail applied from the original design files.

I will be sharing more actual examples during the live TV shows and then here on the blog afterwards.


Just wanted to make sure that you were fully informed.


Update – Here is a foiled die cut using the actual design!

How cool is that?!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I look forward to bringing you more soon!

Bye for now.

J :)

    The versatility of your designs are fabulous John. I showed a class the project from Creative Inspiration and they were excited. I like products that inspire multiple use and possibilities. Please keep pushing the envelope with new and different….how many butterfly dies do crafters need?

    John, I find your designs for the GoPress and Foil machine especially exciting because they are so versatile. Most of what I’ve seen before were sentiments or objects. These are so much more useful, in my opinion. You are doing a great job.
