Cut Foil and Emboss Die Preview 7 – Square Starburst

March 16, 2019 — 10 Comments

If you like the Art Deco style then you are going to love the penultimate Cut Foil & Emboss die.

It’s certainly one for the glamour lovers.

The addition of the dashed lines in the ‘Square Starburst’ was intentional.

Imagine these with a sparkly foil twinkling away like gems!

Now imagine another piece of foiled cardstock behind this one – double zing!


Features

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.

I wasn’t happy with the embellishment on this one but LOVED how the Cut Foil & Emboss style came out.

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 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.

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

Bye for now.

    I’ve managed to resist buying the Go Press and Foil so far but you are making it extremely difficult to continue doing so. I love these dies and am anxiously awaiting the launch, then the difficulty will be choosing which to buy (won’t be able to afford them all as well as the machine). How did you get the blue dotted triangle outlines in your Truly Scrumptious card?
