Holiday Card Picks : Foil Stamped Holiday Cards

Sing it with me – silver and gold, silver and gold … and holographic and red. Yeah, it doesn’t exactly fit with the classic Burl Ives holiday tune, but the white hot foil stamping trend makes for some seriously lovely, modern holiday cards, and this roundup is all about those shimmery, shiny, and oh so eye-catching foil details. Check ’em out in all of their silver, gold, holographic and red glory and, if you’re looking for more foil stamped eye candy, be sure to check out this, too.
