Gold foil Christmas cards have been one of the hottest holiday card trends over the past couple of seasons, and it’s no surprise that these shimmery, shiny, and sometimes glittery designs are a huge hit with people everywhere. Foil adds that extra something that can instantly take a good design to great, and it’s the perfect complement to custom family photos of all shapes and sizes. What’s not to love?

There are other contenders in the world of foil Christmas cards – rose gold foil and silver are two very lovely options – but gold foil takes the prize. Gold foil Christmas cards bridge the gap between classic and modern, and the looks that are created cover a spectrum of styles, from minimalist to botanical to hand lettered and everything in between.

Since the gold foil trend began, I’ve waited with anticipation to see what the wonderfully talented designers in the stationery and greeting card world will come up with next, and I haven’t been disappointed yet! From delicate, gold foil stamped details (think evergreen boughs and berries) to bold strokes and gold foil-filled solids to gorgeous, gold foil stamped hand lettered holiday greetings and sentiments, there’s a little something for everyone when it comes to gold holiday photo cards.

The Minted community is filled with super talented, independent designers who, year after year, create some of the most beautiful holiday card designs around, and this year is certainly no exception.
