 Just look at all of this gorgeousness!! And in case you didnt notice...the foils match Gina K Cardstocks!  woot!



I cant tell you how excited I was about this line of product from Thermo Web and Gina K!  Up first today we are showcasing the Foil Mates Birthday Essentials and You're Invited .  Up first is the card I made with the Birthday Essentials set:


 I used the Polka dotted background Foil Mate on this one too And also the Birthday Essentials.  This card only took a bit of time because of the banner I cut out for it, lol!  And as we all know, its so very hard to capture shine on our cards!  But believe me, its sooo shiny!  I used the Passionate Pink Fancy Foil on this one.

Up next is a card with the Foil Mate, "You're Invited"  I created a little Invite!  :D

 This is a criss cross card I think its called.  The triangle sides dont move, you insert the info card behind those, like a pocket (maybe a pocket card?  LOL)  This one up top here is with the info card inserted.
And this shows the invite pulled out.  What I love most about this line...im a FAST card maker!  Like my idol and fellow DT  Melanie Muenchinger!!  :D

Ready for more awesome creations?! Just click on the links below for more from Gina and the Cast & Crew:
