Hey it’s Katrina from Paper, Scissors and Glue here to share a couple of friendship cards.  If you are familiar with my style, I usually like “all the things” on my projects!  But with the Gina K Designs Foil-Mates I changed my mind and wanted a clean look to the cards I made.

Two Tone Friendship Cards with Gina K Designs Instructions:

Friendship Cards by Katrina Hunt featuring Gina K Designs products

Use The Negative Part of A Foil Piece

For this card, I used the white cardstock, two different colors of foil, three sets of Foil-Mates, an embossing folder, ribbon, tape runner and foam adhesive.

Use the nested square dies and cut Foil-Mates sentiment out of smallest die.

Cut one each of the 2 other dies from the other two Foil-Mate Background designs. Make a base for the card by cutting cardstock at 10″ x 5″ inches, fold in half.  Then cut another piece of cardstock at 4.25″ x 4.25″ and emboss.

Cut a piece of Passionate Pink foil a little larger than the largest Foil-Mate square and foil die cut by running thru laminator   Use the foil again and foil the next smaller die cut.

The step above will leave areas of the toner that are not foiled. Cut a piece of the Turquoise Sea foil and run the same die cut back thru the laminator with the foil on top again. This will give a two toned effect.

Foil sentiment with Turquoise Sea foils and assemble card front. Use 3D Foam Squares for the middle die cut. Use some enamel dots or sequins for some texture on the sentiment die cut.

Inked Background with Foil Mates

Cut cardstock 8.5″ x 5.5, fold in half. Cut Foil-Mates Background 5.25″ x 4.00 inches. Use Gina K Designs ink in Wild Orchid and ink background of Foil-Mate. Let dry for a minute or two.

Cut a piece of Silver Sequins Fancy Foil to fit the background and run thru laminator to foil background piece. Adhere ribbon to one side of the card using mini tape runner and tuck ribbon ends back behind the background. Adhere background to card base.

Now, cut a  sentiment from Foil-Mates using the Nested Rectangle middle sized die. Cut a piece of vellum slightly larger than die cut sentiment and emboss with an embossing folder. Adhere to the card in middle.
