Foiled Cards

Have you tried foiling?  I got a Minc Mini machine for Christmas (I got it online at 50% off!) and I finally broke it out of the box!  I was shopping at Hobby Lobby on Saturday and purchased a pack of four cards and envelopes by Heidi Swapp that were ready for foiling right out of the package.  The pack was on sale for only $1.72, so I bought it.  The cards were 7" x 5" so I cut them in half.  They wouldn't fit in my Minc Mini machine at the larger size, and the paper wasn't that great.  But they worked great as a mat!  Each circle has foil on it.  This one is pink, which is really difficult to see.  This foil is by Heidi Swapp.  I die cut the black paper using Half & Half dies and trimmed them down to fit the card.  Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment.  On this one I used platinum embossing powder.

I used pink foil on this one as well and a different Half & Half die with the same platinum embossing powder.
On this one I used gold Deco foil.  I like this foil much better.  It seems to shine more.  Again I used a different Half & Half die and this time I used gold embossing powder on the sentiment.
I think on this last one you can see some of the shine from the silver Deco foil.  This time I used MFT's Vertical Greetings die for the black piece.  I also used the same platinum embossing powder.
I tilted the gold foiled card so you can see how pretty the foil looks!  Can't wait to do more!
I think I'm going to give this set to my mother-in-law.  She always likes to have cards on hand to send out.
