But, before you think "oh, brother, why does the crafting industry need another die-cutting system?" get a load of this!!!!
The Fiskars® Fuse Creativity System® is SO much more than another die-cutting machine. It's the ONLY system on the market that can die-cut a shape, press a textured pattern and ink the pattern all in one pass through the machine. The simplified plating and manual crank system make it easy to create embellishments for accenting homemade cards, scrapbook pages or just about any other paper craft project.
Did you catch that? Die-cut + Emboss + Letterpressing......ALL AT ONCE, creating a stunning embellishment that will elevate your craft projects to a whole new level. It cuts and letterpresses a wide range of craft materials, and a variety of dies and letterpress plates can be combined with different inks and materials for endless creative possibilities. You can even use your dies and plates from other systems with our machine.
here's a little 34 second video to tease your creative brain....
So, it will:
- Die-cut + Emboss + Letterpress all at once
- It will do any combination of the above (cut + emboss only, cut only, emboss + letterpress only)
- Use any variety of materials (i.e. craft foam, cardstock thick chipboard, copper flashing, vellum, balsa wood)
- Accepts dies + plates from other cutting systems
- Plates can be inked with any of your favorite inks or colored with markers
