Coordinating Christmas Gift Bag and Card | Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™


To create the background on my coordinating Christmas gift bag and card I used a full sheet of the Foil-Mates™ Background - Holiday Flora on the bag and a half sheet on the card. I then trimmed each piece to size and matted it on a piece of Black Onyx cardstock.

I foiled both of these with a piece of Fancy Foils in Radiant Red. All of the new foils have the shimmer and shine of glitter, but without all the mess. You gotta love that! Make sure you hang onto the scraps of foil from both of these. Below, I have a bonus project to share with you on how to use some of these scraps.

The tag on the gift bag was created using the Foil-Mates™ Sentiments  - Tag Tidings. These sentiments were designed to be used with the new Gina K. Designs Decorative Tag Dies. I foiled the tag with a piece of Fancy Foils in Grass Green.

The sentiment on the card was created using the Foil-Mates™ Sentiments - Holiday Cheer.  I die cut it using the Gina K. Designs Stitched Circle Dies and then foiled it with Fancy Foils in Grass Green.

For the final decorative touch on both the gift bag and card, I added some of the new Gingham Fancy Ribbon.

Bonus Project | Merry Christmas Card with Fancy Foil Scraps


I told you to hang onto those Foil Scraps and now I'm going to share with you a fun way to use them. I'll admit most of my scraps end up in the trash. However, after I created the Christmas card above, I knew I had to save that scrap to create another card. It was just too pretty to throw away!

If you've never used your scraps to foil with, I will walk you through the process. To start with, you will need some Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Sheets. Cut the Toner Sheet to size, place the scrap of Fancy Foil on top of it, position it between a piece of parchment paper and run this through your preheated laminator. Peel off the transfer sheet to reveal the foiled design. The Toner Sheets are black and I wanted to add more color, so I trimmed a piece of Fancy Foils in Grass Green, placed it on top of the previously foiled toner sheet and ran it back through the laminator. Now it is covered in red and green foil!

For this card, I used the Foil-Mates™ Sentiments - Joyful Holiday and foiled it with Fancy Foil in Grass Green. I then die cut is using the Gina K. Designs Stitched Rectangles, which work perfectly with these sentiments.
