Here are a couple I made:

New Gina K. Designs Products for Therm-o-Web
Foil-Mates: You’re Invited and Polka Party
Fancy Foils - Sweet Mango and Grass Green (for the Ballons)
Die Sets - Square - Large  Single Stitched  and Small Double Stitched  
     The Star from the Lg. Rectangle Set
Pure Luxury Cardstock - Sweet Mango  and Black Onyx
*On this card - the piece of Sweet Mango foil that I used to foil the dots, I reused it and just glued it to a piece of white cardstock and then added a Black layer behind it. Foiled the Invite in the Sweet Mango and the Balloons in Grass Green then layered with the Black Onyx cardstock as well! 


I used the New Gina K. Designs Products for Therm-O-Web
Foil-Mates: Birthday Essentials  and Stars & Stripes
Fancy Foils - Red Velvet and Silver Sequins
Die Sets - Squares  Large Single Stitched and Small Double Stitched, a candle from the Small Rectangle Set and a Star from the Lg. Rectangle set
Pure Luxury Cardstock - Red Velvet and White (on the inside)
 You can see the Red Velvet lines on the inside, 
that was the piece I used to Foil the Foil-Mate strip piece.
I love how you can use the left over foil of the inside or another layer too! :) 


Thank You for hopping by and I hope you have a Inky day!  :)  <3
