Cut Foil and Emboss Die Preview 6 – Parquet Tiles

Over half way through now so they’ll be available soon!

In the meantime, here is another peek at what’s coming up.

This one is called ‘Parquet Tiles’, for obvious reasons. It’s a great alternative to The Lattice design as a background and to bulk out your cards with a detailed background without having to over embellish it.

To be honest, though, I am thinking that if this was cut from brown card, you’ve got ready-made chocolate bourbon shapes for a shaker card! Lol.


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!

Fancy seeing one of the mockups that I made when I was testing the designs?

Ok, here ya go.

A couple of panels, a sentiment and an embellishment – et voila! Gorgeous card is complete!

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 what the design looks like when foiled and cut with the actual die!

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.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Bye for now.

  4. Love this one. Well I love them all actually but I am a big fan of geometric shapes so this and the lattice really tick the boxes for me.
