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!

Holiday Card Picks : One Canoe Two

One Canoe Two is a perennial favorite of mine, and it’s easy to see why. Their trendsetting paper goods are super cool, no matter the season, and their holiday line is filled with wonderfully eye-catching designs. From the cheerful Making Spirits Bright card, which features a colorful plaid background, to the sweet Reindeer Mistletoe card, I think you’ll find something to crave in this festive bunch.

And I’m absolutely loving the dimensional, high contrast look of their Christmas Wishes and Joy to the World cards. Such a fresh and modern look.
