The Faithful Fish Pattern is a combination die and debossing plate. The fish pattern and border will deboss.
Debossing is the opposite of embossing. With debossing, the imprinted design causes depressions in the cardstock leaving a depressed (debossed) imprint of the image on cardstock.
Depending on the calibration, type of machine and card stock you are using, the border dots may also be die cut. If you would like the border dots to be die cut rather then deboss, you can add additional shims to put more pressure on the metal dot areas.
Due to the fact that this item has more solid metal, and not having lots of open areas as our other background dies do, you will need to shim this die more and you will find you will need to run it through your die cutting machine additional times to achieve the desired effect.
Please be sure to watch our video for instructions on die cutting and debossing.
