Possibly the most versatile and usable die of this first batch is ‘The Lattice’.
Something to add detail to mixed media projects or a backdrop for floral embellishments however you choose to use it, just make sure you get it [please]!
Imagine trying to do all of that nonsense by hand?!
As the pattern repeats so often across three axis, you can crop and tile to your heart’s content!
Fancy seeing one of the mockups that I made when I was testing the designs?
Ok, here ya go.
Don’t forget, die cutting isn’t just about cards. Take a look at this mixed media MDF tag.
Perfect addition to ANY die collection.
Over and above the Cut Foil and Emboss features of the die itself, and let’s not forget the letter pressing style that can be done too, there are some other neat features that were built into this design.
The first one is that this Cut Foil Emboss die can be used as a regular cutting die too so if you don’t have a foiling system, just run it through your regular die cutting machine as you would any other thin metal die and you will get an embossing and die cut effect!
In addition, although designed for the original cross-platform hot foiling and die cutting system – GoPress & Foil – this die can be used in conjunction with other foiling systems too!
Finally, this die has repeating patterns built in and so, with some clever cropping and trimming, it can be used to create layered styles, frames, photo apertures and more.
I can’t wait to see how you use it!
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.
There are now lots of examples on this blog for you to check out.
Update! Here is an example of the design foiled and die cut using the actual die!
