Trends come and go, but I feel that some seem to stay longer than others. One trend that seems to keep going and going for the last few years are the Metallics! I see them everywhere, especially in card designs. Plus with the recent addition of REAL gold foil on all of the card sites like Shutterfly, Tiny Prints and Minted, why not add gold foil to everything! It’s totally hot!
I thought I’d share with you one of my mood/trend boards that I did. This one is Metallics.
And here’s a few cards based off of that trend. I don’t think this one made it. But there is a card that was based off of this one that has REAL GOLD FOIL! You can see it here.
And here’s another layout that I tried, on a folding card.
This one has the Mercury glass as a full background. It was a tricky texture to recreate! Thank goodness for photoshop!
Here’s metallic paints. Paint textures are another hot trend this season, especially watercolor!
This one is rose gold, another part of the metallic color range.
This one is blue foil, which is still a metallic.
Metallics are also hot with glitter, not just foil textures.
And here’s a few other Christmas cards I did, these ones are all folding ones.
Happiest of Holidays friends! If you would like a custom Holiday card for your family, please contact me.
