A Valentine Card, Minc Machine Fun!!!

Hello everyone, thanks for coming by the blog today. I wanted to share with you my new Minc Machine
I received this for Christmas and I could not wait to get it out and play with it. I was so excited. It's not something I would have bought myself but boy am I happy that I got it as a gift! 

I didn't previously know how to use the machine but it comes with a nice set of instructions. Very simple, I bet I was up and going in about 10 minutes. 

I also found a nice video on this from last years CHA here:

I bought a set of butterfly applications and also some words. I didn't use the words, I decided to use my pen and write my own word. Here is a link so you can see what the pen looks like
Minc Toner Pen ... it's out of stock everywhere but if you can find one it's definitely worth it. 
It uses ink toner to write with, which is what you need in order to foil anything.

I ended up foiling a butterfly with light pink foil and also my word "Love" that I had written with the pen
It's really hard to see the shine but they both came out fabulous!!

I used American Craft paper for my beautiful rose background
Here is my finished Valentine card

I have to say I LOVE this machine. I will be using much more in the future. 
Thanks for coming by the blog today. 
p.s. - we have all these products at the store where I work, and we ship!!!  (the pen is out of stock but we do have more on order)
