Today I will be sharing with you the last in this batch of Cut Foil & Emboss dies that will be launching VERY soon.
But, hey, that’s not the end of this preview series …
Another couple of exciting things will be coming your way tomorrow too!
In the meantime, let me share with you the ‘Tropical Damask’.
Taking the repeating style of damask and giving it an exotic twist was the theory behind this one. It’s beautiful, repeatable and will really make your creations stand out!
Wowza! Can’t WAIT to share this one on the launch show!
Fancy seeing one of the mockups that I made when I was testing the designs?
Ok, here ya go.
Confession, I liked this one SO much that I made a second test card.
Ok, I have to clam my breathing now. The nerves are kicking in!
In the meantime, one last reminder of some of the cool things about this range.
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 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.
