I am in love with these foil-mates if you have not had a chance to play with them, you must get them and do so.  For my first card, it is an A2 card, I first cut the sentiment from the True Friend Foil-Mate and used two colors, I used the Turquoise Sea Foil-Mates for the sentiment and the Turquoise Sea Foil-Mates for the swirl.  The swirl I used the Turquoise Sea Foil-Mates.  To finish off the card, I used the flowers from the Small & Large Square Foil-Mates Die Sets.  


GKD Supplies Used:
True Friend Foil-Mates
Swirl & Flourishes Foil-Mates
Passionate Pink Foil-Mates Fancy Foils
Turquoise Sea Foil-Mates Fancy Foils

and Black
Small & Large Square Foil-Mates Die Sets
Thermoweb 3D1/4" Foam Squares
Thermoweb Sticky Dot Runner


Closer look of the card with the foil.

For my second card my card is a square (4 1/2 x 4 1/2).  The sentiment is from the Wedding & Anniversary Foil-Mates.  I die cut the sentiment with the Small Circle Foil-Mates Die Set and used the Red Velvet Foil-Mates Fancy Foils.  The ribbon is from Sheer Satin Fancy Ribbon Black/Gold.
