Illustrated Gold Foil Holiday Cards from Red Cap Cards

Gold Foil Holiday Cards by Anke Weckmann for Red Cap Cards

Happy Halloween! You know what this means, right? It’s time for holiday cards! Now, don’t get me wrong. I definitely don’t want to give short shift to Halloween (my favorite holiday of the year), and I’m listening to “Time Warp” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show as I’m writing this post. But I’ve gotta get this snowball rolling because I have SO MANY awesome holiday paper goodies to share with you over the next month and a half. I know you understand.

We’re getting this holiday card party started with these totally craveable cards by Anke Weckmann for Red Cap Cards. Foil stamping is one of the hot, hot, hot trends again this holiday season, and I love that it’s one of the main stars of this card collection. Anke’s wonderful illustrations shimmer and shine with gold foil stamped goodness for a look that’s both whimsical and undeniably modern.
