Easter 20% discount & other news from Foil Play

Happy Easter from Foil Play! To celebrate, there's 20% off everything on the site (except for custom die cut shapes) when you apply the discount code easter20 and update your basket before checking out your order.

The discount will end at midnight on Tuesday 18 April 2017. Most products which sell out are unlikely to be restocked, so if you have your eye on something in particular at a bargain price, don't wait too long and miss out!

Don't forget to check out the latest products, including a great range of excellent value toppers & co-ordinating card for everyday occasions from Buzzcraft, along with new Play Room and Fairy Tale cut & create decoupage designs and cute Kokeshi Dolls.

There is good news and bad news about postage & packing. Royal Mail prices have just gone up again as they do each year, and there is now a big difference between the cost of sending 1st and 2nd class which I can no longer absorb. So the bad news is that from now on, all orders sent by Royal Mail will go 2nd class. The good news is that you won't need to spend any more to get free p&p - which still applies for all orders over £10, whilst p&p for orders of £10 & below remains at £1.50.

Happy Easter and happy crafting!

Jumbo die cut numbers for special occasions - custom cut from your choice of card


Custom die cut jumbo numbers, available from Foil Play
I made both of these cards using jumbo die cut numbers with matching shadows - as you can see, they really make an impact!  

The 21st birthday card is an 8 x 8 card, with the numbers cut from gold stardust and gold holographic card. The dinosaur themed card below is a 7 x 7 card, with the numbers cut from blue stardust and blue gloss card.

These jumbo numbers would make a perfect focal point for a special birthday or anniversary card - of course they are great for scrap booking too! 

Custom die cut jumbo numbers, available from Foil Play
There are two parts to the jumbo numbers - the shadow (shown above, approximately 9 cm high) and the deckle edged number (shown below, approximately 8.5 cm high).

Each works perfectly as a stand alone number - but if you'd like maximum impact, combine the number and shadow together, as shown in the example below.

You can purchase as many or as few numbers as you choose - you aren't tied to buying a full set if you only need a couple for a particular project. However, if you do need a lot of numbers, there are discounts for bulk purchases of the same design / material.
 
Numbers are custom cut to order, to give you maximum flexibility and choice. There is a huge array of material and colours to choose from, including:
  • mirri card;
  • super sparkly glitter card;
  • sparkly stardust card;
  • gloss finish card;
  • 300 gsm smooth white card - perfect for colouring or stamping;
  • kraft card;
  • holographic card;
  • selected printed card designs;
  • 240 gsm plain coloured card;
  • pearlescent card;
  • double sided adhesive film - which you can foil, glitter or flock yourself;
  • self adhesive vinyl - great for your craft projects, or even for wheelie bin stickers!
