Oh, Whimsy Whimsical, how happy my heart is to see your most adorable holiday cards. Seriously, they have some of the most irresistibly cute holiday cards around, and I’m feelin’ all warm and fuzzy about these sweet greetings, which feature cuddly woodland creatures, festive hand lettering, and even little touches of lustrous copper foil. Cute critters AND copper foil? Love it!

Holiday Card Picks : 7 Fantastic Foil Stamped Holiday Photo Cards

Foil stamping is still one of the hottest trends around (woot, woot!), and it lends itself perfectly to holiday photo cards, which shimmer and shine with classic gold and silver, as well as a new favorite : copper / rose gold. And who knows? If the holographic foil trend takes off in 2016 like copper did in 2015, we may be seeing lots of lovely, holographic foil stamped photo cards next season. A girl can wish, right?

Here are some of my absolute favorite foil stamped holiday photo cards from the Minted holiday collection and, believe me, there were SO many beautiful designs to choose from. Head on over and check out all of ’em!
