Hello there, Shemaine here today sharing some ideas for creating with your Gina K Foil Mates. Purple is my favorite color so when I saw the new GINA K. DESIGNS FANCY FOILS™ 6″ X 8″ • WILD LILAC I was a happy girl.

Birthday Card Instructions:

For this card, I started with foiling the GINA K. DESIGNS FOIL-MATES™ BACKGROUNDS • DOTS & STRINGS with GINA K. DESIGNS FANCY FOILS™ 6″ X 8″ • WILD LILAC.

Next, I used some Tattered Angels glimmer mist and spritzed the GINA K. DESIGNS FOIL-MATES™ BACKGROUNDS • DOTS & STRINGS and let it dry. Then I used the My Favorite Things stitched border to cut the cardstock and mounted it to the embossed card base.

I finished with a bow and GINA K. DESIGNS FOIL-MATES™ SENTIMENTS • BIRTHDAY ESSENTIALS sentiment and cut it with GINA K. DESIGNS (3) NESTED OVAL DIES • DOUBLE STITCH DESIGN • SMALL SET and adhered it to the front of the card.

The glimmer mist adds some fun to the Foil Mates backgrounds don’t you think?

For this card, I wanted to show how easy it is to emboss your foiled Gina K Foil Mates. This is the leftover sheet from the first card I created. Place it in the embossing folder and run thru your die cutting machine to emboss.

It creates a nice texture on the card base. Next, I adhered it to the card base with MEMORY TAPE RUNNER XL™

Next, I cut the sentiment out with the GINA K. DESIGNS (3) NESTED RECTANGLE DIES • DOUBLE STITCH DESIGN • SMALL SET and layered the dies. Then tied a bow and adhered the sentiment to the front of the card using 3D WHITE FOAM SQUARES • COMBO PACK
