New from Dufex: die cut pyramex and decoupage, toppers, large cards

Lots of new Dufex goodies are in store at Foil Play, including new everyday die cut decoupage designs, die cut pyramex and floral shimmer cascades.

All of the new decoupage and pyramex sheets are die cut, no scissors or cutting are required - all you have to do is pop out the shapes and layer them up with foam pads or silicone adhesive to create stunning toppers for your card and craft projects.

The new die cut decoupage designs are motorsports (pictured above), ballet dancers, romantic bears with roses and flowers in jugs.
There are four new die cut pyramex designs: Christening (pictured above), new baby, wedding and Easter. Pop out all the different sized shapes of the image, then layer them on top of each other with foam pads, starting with the largest at the base and the smallest at the top, to create a 3D pyramid effect. Each sheet contains a diagram showing how to position the pyramid layers.
There are eight beautiful designs in the new range of die cut Floral Shimmer Cascades, which bring a new look to decoupage. They have been produced using an innovative new technique which creates a shimmering foil effect on selected areas of the design. This series of colourful photographic floral images have been specially selected for these sheets to complement the Dufex Shimmer effect. These can be used to create beautiful pyramid style decoupage pictures in a variety of different shapes. The decoupage elements have been die cut, with all layers both colour coded and numbered.
There are lots of new individual toppers, including larger designs. The large toppers can either be used as the centrepiece for a large card or for traditional 3D decoupage if you purchase several prints.

Also new, a selection of special purchase greetings cards, printed on 360gsm Dufex material and pre-scored. Cards are slightly smaller than A5 when folded, each stunning card has the beautiful Dufex engraved finish. These can be used as greetings cards, with no further finishing needed, alternatively the front of the card could be used as a topper.
I have stocked up on existing Dufex designs too, where available, as Dufex are discontinuing some designs, particularly traditional, non die cut decoupage designs.

If you are looking for a bargain, traditional Dufex decoupage sheets are on special offer at 79p a sheet at Foil Play at present, with selected designs reduced to 49p. Many A4 topper and texture sheets have been reduced to 49p too - the motif topper sheets are particularly good value as you can make many cards from one A4 sheet.
