Vintaj Deco Motif: DecoEmboss Die Inspiration

Our beautiful Deco Motif DecoEmboss Die was our very first all-over pattern with a symmetrical design which inspired many more. It’s great for creating a piece were you would like a reflection of the pattern, like on a bird or butterfly’s wing as seen in projects below…
