My card has lots of layers, I foiled this card with Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ 6" x 8" Bubblegum Pink, the Foil-Mates I used are Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™ Backgrounds - Love and Kisses and
Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™ Sentiments - Lovely Tags.


Here is a closer look of the card.


I thought these new Foil-Mates™ would look great on gifts for a teacher, school-mate or anyone that you wanted to give a Valentine gift to.  I got this idea by looking at Pinterest.  Did you know Gina K. has Acetate Card Boxes in the Gina K. Designs Store?  They come in a pack of 10 for just $6.00 (the link is below).  

Here is how I made the candy boxes:  I took one acetate box and cut it in half (cut at 3", one side my be a little smaller than one side, but it is not noticeable) with my paper cutter.  I foiled the papers I wanted to use and cut it at 4 1/2 x 5 1/2, on the 5 1/2 inch side, scored it at 3" and 4".  I bought some Ghiradelli Chocolates and covered them with my scraps of foil.  


Here is a side view, when you insert the foiled paper, tuck it into the acetate box flap on the bottom no adhesive is necessary to attach it anywhere! 


 I used magnets to keep the flap closed, but you could use Velcro or just put a glue dot to keep it closed.



Closer pick....don't you love the foiling - this is foiled with the Bubblegum.


Closer look - this is foiled with the  Red Velvet.
