Topic: Die Cuts
I bought a couple of new sets of Spellbinders dies called 'Piercabilities' that I thought had promise for cutting card edges. This is the first one I used. They have a cutting edge, scrolls or other shapes that emboss, and little holes that I thought might emboss or even I could pierce through them and do stitching.
The edge cuts fine.
The embossing is faint.
The holes embossed so little that it looked tacky. So I left the die in place and pierced through the holes. Looked pretty lame. I decided to do faux stitching with a purple fine-line marker. Still looks tacky.
I decided to back it with purple to match the stitching lines and to cover up the pierced holes on the other side. Then I added a pyramid 3D illustration that I had backed with more purple.
I am not impressed with how this is impressed. I will try out the other 3 dies but don't hold out much hope for them. They may end up in my 'gift stash' to send of with a swap to someone.
