Going back 12-months or more, we would never add, say, gold and silver on the same project.  But now, the trend in paper crafting is mixing metallics and I love it!  Stampin' Up! is right on trend with their Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This gorgeous paper has classic foil designs with a mix of champagne, copper, gold and silver.  Here's three of the four paper designs on cards inspired by a photographed image on page 36 of the Holiday Catalogue...

One great technique for card making is repetition of the stamped sentiment, like the "cheers" on these cards, expressing good wishes and thanks.  These are the cards I've created for those who place an order with me during October to say, "thank you".
