...Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™


Good morning folks and welcome to our Holiday blog hop - today the girls at Gina K designs are showing you how to make your Holidays shine with Foil-Mates™

My post is a little pic heavy so I'm keeping the ramble to a minimum, but the products I used are listed below and you can scoop them all from HERE at the Gina K. Designs store:

 Holiday Flora Foil Mates
Tag Tidings Foil Mates
Onamental Holiday Foil Mates
Festive Labels Foil Mates
Radiant red Foil
Glittering Green Foil
Decorative Tag Die Set
Decorative Label Die Set

I adore how everything co-ordinates, it makes it soooo super easy to create pretty things so quickly! My card above features one of the larger label designs from the Festive Labels Foil Mates

I foiled it in that glorious red shade before layering it onto two different backgrounds that I made with the Ornamental Holiday and Holiday Flora Foil Mates. I used plain black card for matting and filled in around the outer area of the label with a black marker to make my large label co-ordinate with the black mats. It was super simple, but very effective!



I created a little Holiday packaging for my next project and I wanted to show you a neat way to incorporate those pretty foils into other areas using double sided tape. The pics are pretty self explanatory, but basically I used strong double sided tape to add to co-ordinating striped to my plain red tin. I picked up the stripe design from the background tag that I had foiled with the ornamental holiday candy stripe Foil Mate sheet. Here's a series of pics to show you how:


Start with a plain tin, or box.


Add your design with double sided tape.

 Peel off the top of the tape.


layer the foil onto the sticky tape, colour side up. Smooth it well.


Peel off the foil to reveal your foiled design - I went for a tone on tone look with red on red.



Add your tag. you're done! Custom packaging.


I die cut the tags with the gorgeous Decorative tag die set, I'm loving the tags in this set. The label sentiment is from Tag Tidings and was foiled with the Radiant Red foil. I sure hope you like what I did with the foils, they are super easy to work with!
